The year was 1931. The United States and much of the world were in the throes of the Great Depression. Jobs were scarce, and many families were having difficulty making ends meet. In the tiny town of Manchester, PA, a housewife named Katharine Beecher had an idea. Undaunted by the nation’s economic woes, she decided to transform her talent for making delicious candy into a small business. She started producing large quantities of her popular Butter Mints in the kitchen of her home, and a legend was born.
Katharine Beecher combined natural ingredients such as rich, creamy butter, oil of peppermint, salt, sugar and corn syrup to handcraft melt-in-your-mouth candy treats. They are just as delicious now as they were more than 80 years ago. Katharine Beecher Candies still produces Butter Mints by following Katharine Beecher’s original recipe to the letter. Candy lovers will experience the same remarkable taste sensation and unmistakable country goodness that brightened the lives of Katharine’s friends and neighbors during difficult times.
