Looking for something unique for Christmas giving? The Iowa folks that brought us the Twin Bing Candy Bar have come up with this cool box of fun!

I'm always looking for something unique for Christmas giving. And I enjoy it even more if it's a gift that is made locally.

When I think of Palmer Candy Company the first thing that of is Twin Bing Candy bars. I loves me some Bings.

I've enjoyed the regular Cherry Twin Bings for years. More recently I've had the Blue Raspberry Twin Bings, Caramel Twin Bings, Twin Bing Beer, the Cherry Twin Bing Ice Cream Sandwiches sold here in Sioux Falls by Stensland Family Farms Ice Cream.

A little history about The Palmer Candy Company Family

  • They have been making candy together since 1878.
  • The Palmer Candy Company operates today as one of the country's oldest candy companies.
  • They are the oldest company of its size to be under continuous family ownership in the United States.
  • The whole story began in 1878 when a fire destroyed their St. Joseph, Michigan home of Edward Cook Palmer. Instead of rebuilding, he decided to pack up his family and move to the fast-growing frontier town of Sioux City, Ia. And the rest, as they say, is history!


Iowa Palmer Company's Twin Bing Products

Can you even really claim to live in this part of the country if you've never had a Twin Bing?


"It consists of two round, chewy, cherry-flavored nougats coated with a mixture of chopped peanuts and chocolate. The Twin Bing was introduced in the 1960s," -Wikipedia

Not only has the TB been a staple of the Sioux Empire for over half a decade, but the makers of the classic candy have also infused the unique cherry and chocolate flavor into lots of other things.
