Doscher French Chews
Made right here in Cincinnati! French Chews are taffy bars that come in classic flavors like vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, and banana. You can also get them in mini wrappers similar to Tootsie Rolls. Doscher has been in business since 1871!
Airheads are soft, tangy, taffy like candy made right here in the Cincinnati area by Perfetti Van Melle in Erlanger, Kentucky! They were invented in 1985 and come in 16 different flavors such as, cherry, blue raspberry, watermelon, green apple, strawberry, white mystery, orange, grape, and more!
Cow Tails are long cylinders of caramel with a cream center. Very similar to Goetze’s other famous candy, the Caramel Cream (also known as bull’s eyes). They come in vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, and caramel apple.
