A long time ago, in the small European village of Werther, candy-maker Gustav Nebel created his finest candy. He used the best ingredients – real butter, fresh cream, white and brown sugars, a pinch of salt and a lot of time – to create a treasure worthy of being wrapped in gold. Because they turned out especially well, they were named Werther’s Original in honor of the little village. Crafting this smooth, creamy caramel became a family tradition handed down through generations. Today, people everywhere enjoy the unique taste of Werther's Original, the best-selling caramel in the world.
