In May 2009, Pearson Candy Company of St. Paul, Minnesota will celebrate its 100th anniversary! Originally founded by three Pearson brothers as a candy distribution firm, the company soon began manufacturing its own candy. The Nut Goodie made its debut in 1912 as a premium 5 candy bar. In 1933, the Salted Nut Roll debuted and for a brief period was called “Choo Choo Bar” to distinguish itself from other Nut Roll items available at the time. The 1951 acquisition of Trudeau Candy brought the 7-Up candy bar and Mint Patties to Pearsons line. The Pearson family retained ownership of the company until 1968 when it was sold to ITT/Continental Baking (NY). In 1979, the company was then sold to The Confections Group and the 7-Up candy bar was discontinued. In 1985, the company was purchased by two employees who once again gave the company and its products the attention deserved. The Bun Trademark was acquired from Clark Bar America in 1998. These Bun cluster items were a natural compliment to the Nut Goodie and offered expansion into additional markets. As we celebrate our first 100 years, we not only reflect on our rich history, but lay the foundation for a strong future. We are honored to continue a tradition started by the Pearson brothers so long ago and take pride in the fact that our candies have brought enjoyment to so many generations!
