Specializing in Handmade Old Fashioned Barley Candy Since 1971


Many years ago we used to taste test our candy by whacking a lollypop on one of our marble table tops
to break them into small pieces. My Mom would say "It's the adult way to eat barley candy"
(you could sample several flavors and not walk around for hours with a stick in your mouth).
It also made it easier to share. My Grandmother, (then in her 90's) preferred it and suggested that
perhaps we should bag them up and sell them this way, and as it took less work to make them,
we could sell them for a better price. It's true. GEMS are the least expensive form of Barley Candy we make!
You get an assortment of flavors in every bag and it's easy to share them with a friend (if you want to...).

We do not recommend that children under the age of three eat GEMS without adult supervision.
