a little story about us

About Us - 1924 hard candy maker Butterfields Candy. Old fashion hard candy by Butterfields Candy.


We are the producer of 100% dairy free, gluten free, pure cane sugar Candy Buds located in Nashville, North Carolina. Our company makes handcrafted, old fashioned candy the same way it was done back in 1924. At Butterfields Candy Company, we proudly manufacture and package all of our products in the United States of America.

We are the original makers of the classic Peach Bud hard candy. The Peach Bud’s delicate bouquet of fresh, ripe, peachy tang, mixed with the sweet dab of smooth, creamy coconut is a perfect combination of flavors making it a gourmet favorite for almost a century. Capturing the true essences of your favorite fruits, we offer a variety of other flavors such as Key Lime, Lemon, Honeybell Orange, Ginger and Cherry.

“Our old-fashioned hard candy is handcrafted in copper kettles, using time honored recipes that put us on the map. A true candy connoisseur would expect no less.”

At Butterfields, we have endured challenges OVER the last 93 years,

But we are back and here to stay! As a family-owned and operated business, we are dedicated to breathing new life into a proven product – one that has withstood the test of time. Buds are our signature product, which are a well-loved treat throughout the country. We are dedicated to staying connected to our past as we continue to grow towards a brighter future. However, we are still faithful to our recipes and refuse to use less than the BEST ingredients on the market. As time evolves, Butterfields does too by using all-natural flavors and working towards all-natural colors.

“Even the coldest winter or harshest times cannot stop a tree bud from bursting forth” – so it is with Butterfields Buds.

We believe in Eternal Spring and the joy a piece of good candy can bring
