World Famous Twin Bing Candy Is Still Made Right Here In The Hawkeye State
One of Iowa’s oldest businesses is home to a sweet treat that has been part of the Hawkeye State’s culinary culture for generations. That’s right – we’re talking about Twin Bings and the Palmer Candy Company!
Palmer Candy Company is one of the oldest candy shops in the country! The Palmer story begins in 1878 and carries through five generations, leading up to today.
Over 140 years later, Palmer Candy Co. is actually the oldest company of its size to be under continuous family ownership in the United States. This slice of sweet history is right here in Sioux City, Iowa!
Stop in to the old fashioned candy shop to step back in time and enjoy treats and candies that will remind you of your childhood.
The most famous candy made by Palmer's is their Twin Bing. It was first produced in 1925, and originally was offered in four flavors: maple, vanilla, pineapple, and cherry.
Today, Cherry Twin Bings are a Midwestern treat that will remind anyone of time spent growing up in the Hawkeye State.
These sweet and unique candy bars consist of a cherry flavored center surrounded by chopped peanuts and homemade chocolate. They're just as delicious now as they were a century ago!
