Asher's began in 1892, when Chester A. Asher opened a small candy shop in the heart of Philadelphia. In addition to candies, Chester and his staff of six also made jams, jellies, maple syrup, freshly baked cakes and ice creams.
Beautiful European-style bonbons and rare candies were displayed
in the window to tempt people who were passing by.
The Asher name quickly became associated with superb quality, and the store acquired larger space in the Philadelphia’s historic German town neighborhood. When Chester’s son John died in 1966, the third generation of Asher's took the company’s helm. With the increased use of air-conditioning in stores, homes and automobiles, chocolates were becoming more popular as a year-round candy. Jack and Bob decided to expand their selection of chocolates and began produce sugar-free (what was then called “dietetic”) chocolates.
Asher's quickly grew, and by the 1980s, Jack's and Bob’s sons, David and Jeff, continued the business into the fourth generation. They soon moved the company to Montgomeryville, Pennsylvania. When that space became too small, The Asher Familiy purchased 31 acres of farmland in Souderton, Pennsylvania. This is where Asher’s Chocolates are made today.
Some of my favorite Asher's products are the Milk Chocolate Dipped Oreos, Mint Patties, and Assorted Cherry Cordials. I could sit and snack on any of these chocolates any time of the day. They are so delicious , and the chocolate melts in your mouth! Asher's also carries an assortment of Gift Boxes and Towers and Gift Baskets that come right to your door perfectly packaged.
