Idaho Candy Company

Idaho Candy Company began as a dream for T.O. Smith in 1901. He had been a journeyman candy maker in Chicago and Salt Lake City before he moved to Boise, Idaho to help build a local hotel. After construction finished he found himself out of work and started making candy and selling it door to door out of shoe boxes to make ends meet. Eight years later, Smith built a modern factory in Boise to meet the growing needs of the Idaho Candy Company’s customers; this is the same 23,000 sq ft factory that they still make their candies in today using some of the very same machinery from the early 1900s!

We're not the only ones who love them!

Over the course of their 110+ year history the Idaho Candy Company has been written about by Road Food, 500 Things to Eat Before It's Too Late, Candy: The Sweet History, Sunset Magazine, and many other media outlets.
