While we'd love to tell you that our story began in the early 1900's at our Head Sugar Daddy's great-uncle Andrew Wedman & great-uncle Ralph Lawson's Palace Confectionery in Yukon, OK (shown above)...we can't.Our vision has grown into the American dream of one day opening a brick-and-mortar location in our hometown of Yukon, OK. It was businesses like the Palace Confectionery that molded communities across the nation into what they are today. The businesses that made America great were the businesses that people drove from town to town to visit. The businesses that made America great were the businesses that relied on each other for survival, especially during tough times. Those businesses gave our nation the heartbeat we're often missing today. Our goal is to bring those qualities back to the communities we serve today.As we share our beginning and who we are today below, a few things will remain as the foundation of Mollycoddled Hash Slinger-- We will always source supplies and ingredients from other small businesses, especially those in our local community. We will always hand-craft our candies just as was done in the early years of our great nation. We will always provide you with candy that truly leaves an impression whether for yourself or as a gift. Above all, we will always work hard to provide you with a piece of the American dream.This podcast is made possible by the Made in Oklahoma Program.
