Place of Origin

Maker Russell Stover

Maker Details The Russell Stover Candy Company did not start with candy. In 1921, Russell Stover and his partner, Iowa schoolteacher Christian Nelson, invented the world's first chocolate-dipped ice cream bar. In 1923, Russell and Clara created the new eponymous company from their home, packaging and selling boxed chocolates. They were originally named "Mrs. Stover's Bungalow Candies", however, 20 years later, in 1943, it was renamed Russell Stover Candies.
