My great grandfather, B.E. Atkinson, started Atkinson Candy Company in 1932 here in Lufkin Texas. Today, we still produce the same quality confections that started it all over 70 years ago. Every day we are cooking up fresh batches of Chick-O-Sticks, Peanut Butter Bars, Mint Twists, Long Boys, and many other fabulous treats.
This blog is to serve as a daily journal for my life as a fourth generation confectioner and my fabulous life in Candyland! Check back for news, sneak peaks, pictures, conversations, and just good old fashion chit-chat on all things sweet in life.
