The Charming Story of Butterfield’s Candies is Brought to Life in our New Holiday Buds Gingerbread Gift Box

The story of Butterfield’s Candy is simple. 100 Years ago in a small North Carolina town, 3 candymakers cooked up a delicious infusion of real-fruit flavored candy treats. The candies were a sensation, winning the blue-ribbon award across three counties in North Carolina. A century later, they are a popular treat all across America and throughout the world!

To commemorate our candymaking centennial we imagined a group of cheerful and charming holiday elves, cooking up a batch of holiday candy in big copper kettles among a gingerbread forest. Artist and Designer Mary Ellen Schrock of California, brought our new design to life with her typical magical flair. Mary Ellen has previously designed for Disney, Warner Bros., and other Hollywood Studios. Among her highly recognized works is the identity and branding for Disney’s The Lion King on Broadway, the longest running show in Broadway history.

One look at the adorable candymakers on our new package transports you to a charming and whimsical winter wonderland and the place where Butterfield’s Candies were born over 100 years ago. Our holiday candymakers are churning up the first batches of holiday buds among a gingerbread forest.

Our new holiday packaging is available in two convenient gift box sizes, 7oz. and 3oz. The same gable box designed to look like a little gingerbread house full of candy. “We are so charmed by the new designs and envision lots of clever decorating ideas to come from our customers as they incorporate these adorable gift boxes into their holiday decorating themes and traditional family gatherings.” said Dena Manning, CEO of Butterfield’s Candies.
