In 1921, Ruth Hunt turned a penchant for candy-making into a business that quickly outgrew her home’s kitchen. Today, guests can visit the factory in Mt. Sterling and peruse a selection of more than 70 candy varieties and gifts such as signature boxes, gift baskets, holiday tins filled with the companies' favorite products, Elmwood Inn teas, Ale 8 One products, Kentucky cookbooks, and simply Kentucky jam cakes. Ruth Hunt Candies is a KY Proud company where customers during factory tours can see chefs stilling using original methods, making candy by hand as well as using the same copper kettles that Ruth Tharpe Hunt used to mix together high quality ingredients including real whipping cream, roasted nuts, and additive-free chocolate.
