Thank You! Your rating has been saved.

The Dinstuhl Family has been making quality candies in Memphis for five generations starting with Charles Martin, Sr. in 1902. His son, Charles Martin, Jr., joined his father in the early 1920's. They worked together to provide Memphians with the Finest Candies until the late 1920's when Charles Martin, Sr. retired. Edward Eugene, in his early teens, joined his father to help during WWII.

Several years later, Gene received personal instruction from two prominent New York Candy Makers. It was at this time he added new and exciting recipes to his Grandfather's collection. In 1970 the fourth generation Gary Eugene, joined his father and grandfather in the business. In the late 1970's Charles Martin, Jr. retired leaving Edward Eugene and Gary to lead the company into a tremendous time of growth.

In 1983, leaving a 900 square foot facility in the Laurelwood Shopping Center, the 11,000 square foot "Candy Kitchen" on Pleasant View began operation. With this new facility Dinstuhl's Fine Candy Company has been able to increase production of candy while still maintaining the highest quality.

In the past 10 years Gene's grandson Andrew Dinstuhl has become involved in the legendary candy company to learn the fine art of candy making. This fifth generation candymaker is currently in charge of the daily candy production.

In 2003 Larry and Judy Moss bought this historic company to assure that the quality and traditions will be continued for many generations to come. Their daughter Marissa Moss joined the company and is actively involved with today's daily operations. Rebecca Dinstuhl is at the helm and focused on not only maintaining the quality that has made them viable for over 100 years, but also plans to expand the market place beyond Memphis with selected items on regional and national levels.

Dinstuhl's has been called upon for many years to make custom products for many special events and celebrities such as Elvis, Super Bowl XL, the Kentucky Derby, the NBA Finals and the Breeder's Cup as well as Graceland and QVC.

Dinstuhl's prides itself on using fresh ingredients such as butter, cream, sugar, and their own special blend of milk and dark chocolate. Each unique formula is hand stirred in small batches just as it was in 1902. Their commitment to quality is further demonstrated in the kosher certification by the Vaad Hakehilloth of Memphis. Even today, it is still possible to find one of the Dinstuhl's in the kitchen "Cookin up a batch!"
