Ferrara Candy Company Gives a Peek of Classic Favorites at the Sweets & Snacks Show
Lemonhead candies are celebrating their 55th birthday this year. The tart treat has long been a staple of the Chicago-based Ferrara Candy Company, a classic American confectioner that traces its roots back to 1908. The company is keeping it old school, churning out countless Chuckles, Jujyfruits, Red Hots, Boston Baked Beans, and, of course, Lemonheads.
Now the iconic Lemonhead has reunited with his old buddies. At the recently held Sweets & Snacks Expo, Ferrara revealed that it is bringing back the beloved Alexander the Grape, Mr. Melon and Johnny Apple Treats. The items will be housed in retro-styled packaging and will cost only a quarter.
Lemonheads, Jujyfruits and Boston Baked Beans will also be offered in a new package, giving consumers another option besides the theater box. All items will be available at Walgreens.
