Maker Bartons Bonbonniere

Maker Details One legendary staple in Brooklyn's sugary past was Barton's Bonbonniere, better known as Barton's Candy. Barton's was established in 1938 by Viennese immigrant Stephen Klein. During the height of it's production, the 1950s, Barton's had three kosher manufacturing plants in Brooklyn. The main plant was at 80 DeKalb Avenue. Barton's was an international distributor and they were particularly known in the Jewish community for being "the" Passover chocolate of choice. The Klein family sold the business sometime after the 1960s. The Barton's name was used by several parent companies, but it came to a sad end in 2009.!.aspx
