Welcome to Butterfields Candy!
We've been making candy by hand for over 97 years!


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.
