The origins of Mr Stanley’s confectionery can be traced back to North Yorkshire, England, 1843. Mr Stanley has always had a penchant for the finest confectionery around. After travelling the world he found some of the most splendid treats for all to share. One of Mr Stanley’s great pleasures was the making of special sweets to share with family and friends. The Fragrant aroma of brown sugar, molasses and natural flavors from faraway places was a sure sign that Mr Stanley was in the kitchen! So popular were his gatherings that in 1843 Mr Stanley decided to go into commercial production of his treats.
