Celebrating 114 Years of Excellence

In 1907, President Theodore Roosevelt was promoting the square deal. Henry Ford was getting the first Model-T into production. Oklahoma was joining the Union as the 46th state and the Wright Brothers were launching the aviation age at Kitty Hawk.


In Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, Ford G. Birchard was starting the Purity Candy Company. Back then, Mr. Birchard used all natural ingredients, simple machines, and carefully tested recipes. He believed that making small batches by hand contributed to Purity Candy's outstanding reputation for quality.

Today, that legacy continues to thrive at Purity under the ownership and guidance of the Burfeindt family. We still use the same recipes, techniques and attention to quality so important in the creation of fine confections. We've also added a few new candies and improved some old ones. But, most important to candy lovers, we haven't compromised Purity's natural, old-fashioned commitment to quality.

Purity's Exquisite goodness comes from the fresh natural ingredients and fine chocolates we blend to make each piece. Our creams are made with real butter, the richest chocolate and highest quality flavorings. To make our chocolate-covered nuts, we use only the finest walnuts, brazils, filberts, pecans, cashews, and Spanish peanuts. Each one is dry-roasted right in our factory and quickly chocolate-coated for maximum freshness. Peanut clusters and chilcotes are still hand-dipped the old-fashioned way. Only fresh cream and sugar go into our milk chocolate and dark chocolate coated caramels for a rich, chewy treat. And our famous chocolate covered pretzels are made with fresh Pennsylvania-made pretzels.
