Our Tradition and History

Over 100 Years of Caramel Tradition

A long time ago, in the little village of Werther, an expert confectioner carefully crafted a wonderful sweet. He took the finest natural ingredients, fresh butter and cream, to create the delicious Butter Candies you know and love today.
And because there was simply nothing else like them, he called them Werther's Original. Since then we have maintained the care, tradition and passion passed down through generations to bring you a range of different, yet equally delicious varieties.

Today, people all around the world enjoy the unique taste of Werther's Original.
