Handcrafted Since 1903
Our story began over 100 years ago in the late 1800’s by an Irishman named Patsy Mehaney. Patsy had a dream inspired by his taste buds to create the the best candied popcorn and salt water taffy he could, which he sold at local fairs and various events around Terra Haute, Indiana. Legend has it a company called Cracker Jack heard of his famous candied popcorn and Patsy made a deal for his classic recipe before heading west. Patsy settled in Manitou Springs, Colorado at the foot of, “The Purple Mountain Majesty”, Pikes Peak in 1903 and started Patsy’s Candies.
