Ruth Hunt Caramels are made with only the finest ingredients, including real heavy cream, to fashion a chewy caramel that immediately stimulates the palate with a sweet buttery sensation. Handcrafted in small batches for nearly a century, these confections remain a traditional favorite.
About Ruth Hunt Candies
In 1921 Ruth Tharpe Hunt began to sell the confections that her friends and family had always loved. The demand for her candy led to the opening of a small store in her home. Soon her business outgrew her home store and in 1930 she built a small factory on Main Street in Mt. Sterling, KY. In 2001 Ruth Hunt Candies expanded into a new comprehensive factory complex in Mt. Sterling.
Today, approximately 70 varieties of candy are made, using many of Ruth Hunt’s original recipes. These confections are steeped with the flavor of Kentucky and the tradition of absolute quality. Each confection is made with the finest ingredients such as real whipping cream and dairy butter.
