  • Muth’s Candies

    • The dream of Muth’s Candies became a reality when Rudy returned from WWI. With the support of family and friends, he was about to establish his candy shop on East Market St in Louisville. The fact that there were already many go candy manufactures, made Rudy more determined for his to be the best.

      Rudy and my sister Bell gave the store love which gave it life. With this love he perfected his recipes using only the finest ingredients. Not only did they want to make the finest candies, but also they wanted to have a business where their employees would be like family and their customers would become friends. By achieving they had many family members and friends who loved working here throughout the years. Because of this atmosphere, Rudy and Bell’s store has endured and become “Louisville’s oldest and finest.” Being here from the beginning, I share the love for the business that Rudy and Bell created for us all. As preset owner I am fortunate to be able to have passe the love for candy making and the spirit of the business to my son, his wife and their seven children.
