Just so you know...
We've been around a long time - over 60 years, yes the same family making pretty much the same wonderful lollipops so many of you remember while growing up. We've had lots of practice and don't plan on resting on our past accomplishments.
Yost Candy's formative years were spent producing hand-dipped, fine chocolates with lollipops as a side-line. As the pops gained popularity, our sales area expanded from a local business to include most areas east of the Mississippi. It was in the mid 1950's that our founder and father, Earl A. Yost decided to limit our production solely to lollipops. He then built our current facility, here in Dalton, Ohio. As always, all our lines are proudly made in the USA. We still follow Dad's lead; using only the highest grade ingredients with flavoring being the most important part of this process. A lot of time and attention is spent developing and refining, making sure our pops are just the right amount of "sweet" and "tangy" to compliment our pure, clean flavors. Cherry is unmistakably cherry, butterscotch rich and smooth, all the way through our 20 plus selections. See if you don't agree.
Yost Candy has made a name change to Yost Brands reflecting the changing times and direction of the company of entering into nutraceutical products (Rockit Energy Pops, vitamin pops, etc.). You can call us Yost Candy or Yost Brands (we go by both) but don't worry, we're always going to make your favorite candy, only with the addition of new products.
