The History of Candy Buttons®
Colorful, unique and whimsical, this is the nostalgic treat that everyone remembers having fun with as a child.
In 1980, NECCO® acquired the Gum Products Company which owned the Cumberland Valley brand, the originators of candy buttons in America. In 1989, NECCO® acquired the Candy House Candy Buttons® brand, which made NECCO® the exclusive manufacturer of this popular American product.
Still popular today, NECCO® makes 3/4 billion Candy Buttons® in the course of a year!
