B.E. and Mabel Atkinson started selling candies in the 1930’s after Mr. Atkinson was laid off from his job at a metal factory. A few years later he decided to start manufacturing his own treats from local homemade recipes. Located in Lufkin, Texas, the company is now known worldwide for its fine quality candy, including some of the best peanut butter and peppermint candies available! Today, third and fourth generations of Atkinsons proudly carry on the family tradition, and are always busy creating new confections for us to enjoy.
