Idaho Candy Company
The Idaho Candy Company was founded in 1901 by T.O. Smith. He began by making chocolates in his garage, and then selling them door-to-door. In 1909 he opened a factory in Boise which still operates today. In 1984, John Wagers bought the company and his son Dave Wagers is the current-serving president of Idaho Candy.
Over the years, the company has produced more than 50 varieties of candy bar, of which three are still being produced today. The Idaho Spud (1918) consists of a cocoa-flavored marshmallow center covered with a dark chocolate coating and sprinkled with coconut flakes. It is shaped like a potato. The Old Faithful (1925) consists of a vanilla-flavored marshmallow center topped with whole peanuts and covered with milk chocolate. The Cherry Cocktail (1926) consists of a maraschino cherry cream center coated in ground peanuts and milk chocolate. Three varieties of Owyhee Butter Toffee are also still being produced, along with about 20 varieties of bulk candy. All candy made by the company can be bought directly at the Idaho Candy Company website.
