Founded in 1899, family-owned Judson-Atkinson Candies, Inc. manufactures a wide variety of bulk panned and non-chocolate candy, including soft and chewy Fruit Sours (available in 7 single colors—perfect for parties!), classic Circus Peanuts, and Starlight Peppermints.


Judson-Atkinson began with candy maker E.J. Jenner, who started producing peanut brittle, hard stick-candy, and five-cent fudge bars from a Texas warehouse in 1899. When J.W. Judson purchased a controlling share in Jenner's business in 1910, he decided to add jelly and creme- filled hard candies, fruit drops, orange slices, and jelly beans to the company inventory. A relentless experimenter, Judson stumbled upon what would become a best-seller when he created the first "sour" while attempting to tart up the Judson jelly beans.

In 1983, Dr. Atkinson purchased Judson Candy Co. bringing it out of bankruptcy and renamed it Judson-Atkinson Candies. Dr. Atkinson is currently involved in the day-to-day operation at Judson-Atkinson Candies, as well as serving the Atkinson Candy Company as CEO.
