The invention

It happened in the little town or Werther, Germany in 1909. That is where confectioner Gustav Nebel created the now iconic Butter Candy recipe. He took fresh cream, real butter, refined white sugar, brown rock sugar, a pinch of salt and plenty of time to create the now globally famous Butter Candy.
