GOETZE’S CARAMEL CREAMS® CELEBRATE 100 YEARS
Iconic American Treat Maintains Nostalgic Caramel Flavor for Generations
BALTIMORE (April 2, 2018)-- Goetze’s Candy Company, Inc., a manufacturer of caramel products produced in the U.S., today announces that 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the brand’s nostalgic candy, Caramel Creams®. The fifth generation family-owned business owes much of its success to Caramel Creams, a product the company has always manufactured in Maryland.
The Chronicle of Caramel Creams:
● Founded in 1895, as the Baltimore Chewing Gum Company, the family-run business begins making sweet treats in Maryland.
● In 1917, the family makes "chuees" (Caramel Creams without the center) out of their kitchen.
● Caramel Creams make their debut in 1918, often referred to as Bulls-Eyes® due to the unique round shape of the caramel with a white center.● The company dedicates production to Caramel Creams in the 1940s and renames the business Goetze’s Candy Company.
● The product evolves over the mid-1900’s, including the addition of new flavors and increased distribution.
● In 1984, Goetze’s Candy Company launches a new brand of chewy caramel called Cow Tales®.
● Today, the Goetze family continues to lead the business, introduce new products, improve production and incorporate technology into everyday operations.
Goetze’s continues to maintain the family tradition with the same flavors from 100 years ago—winning over the taste buds of generations, from great-grandparents to great-grandchildren. Caramel Creams are made with real milk and a unique wheat-based formulation that delivers a delicious, chewy texture with a cream center. Nut-free and made with a trans-fat free formula, Caramel Creams are available in six flavors—“original” vanilla, chocolate, “original” chocolate, strawberry, apple, and licorice.
To celebrate the anniversary, Goetze’s is gifting one lucky winner with a year’s supply of Caramel Creams. To enter to win, text 100th along with your email to 63566. Entry details and rules can be found here. Goetze’s also invites fans to get nostalgic and share their favorite memories and photos of Caramel Creams using #CaramelCreams100th.
“We are thrilled to be able to celebrate this exciting milestone not only as a brand, but also as a family,” said Mitchell Goetze, CEO of Goetze’s Candy Co., Inc. “We’re grateful for over a century of dedication from our Goetze’s team and for ongoing love and support from our customers who continue to appreciate our unique combination of caramel and cream they have come to enjoy for generations.”

BALTIMORE, MD (June 28, 2017) – Goetze’s Candy Company, Inc. announces that they will be setting an all new world’s record at the Maryland State Fair this year with the largest Cow Tales® ever recorded. Typically one ounce in size and approximately 7 inches in length, Cow Tales® are a soft, chewy caramel wrapped around a decadent cream center. “We intend to produce the largest Cow Tales® anyone has ever seen,” stated Mitchell Goetze, CEO of Goetze’s Candy Co., Inc. “To commemorate the 136th Annual Maryland State Fair, our goal is to create a Cow Tales® that measures approximately 10 feet in length.” The ginormous Cow Tales® will be featured in front of the Bulk Candy Store inside the Exhibition Hall. The last few days of the fair, the Bulk Candy Store will be selling Cow Tales® rope with all the proceeds benefiting the Maryland State Fair Scholarship Fund.
Cow Tales® debuted in 1984 as a companion product to the very successful Caramel Creams® sweet treat. The fun shape and quirky name leant this new item to the younger demographic. Caramel Creams® were often referred to as Bulls-Eyes® due to the unique round shape of the caramel with a white center. The name Cow Tales® was created by playing off the Bulls-Eyes® name but with a little twist in the end. “Tales” refers to the childhood Fairy Tales and was noted in the cow jumping over the moon that was once featured at the end of the Cow Tales ® logo.
