A long time ago, in the small European village of Werther, candy-maker Gustav Nebel created his finest candy. He used the best ingredients – real butter, fresh cream, white and brown sugars, a pinch of salt and a lot of time – to create a treasure worthy of being wrapped in gold. Because they turned out especially well, they were named Werther’s ORIGINAL in honor of the little village. Crafting this smooth, creamy caramel became a family tradition handed down through generations. Today, people all around the world enjoy the unique taste of WERTHER’S ORIGINAL. The irresistible hard caramel candy created by Gustav Nebel over 100 years ago is still, to this day, one of the most popular and best selling caramel candies in the world. In fact, people in over 100 countries consider it a favorite, making WERTHER’S ORIGINAL the most international of the Storck family of brands. With so many WERTHER’S ORIGINAL varieties, it can be hard to choose a favorite. Will it be our classic hard candies, beloved by generations? Or, perhaps, our soft caramels with their traditional, sweet flavor and creamy texture? Or you may choose our caramel popcorn for a sweet and savory combination like no other.
