Werther’s Original, the traditional Butter Candy with a long history

A long time ago, in the little village of Werther, an expert confectioner carefully created a wonderful sweet. He took real ingredients like fresh cream and real butter and combined them to create the delicious Butter Candies you know and love today. And because there was simply nothing like them, he called them Werther's Original. Since then, we have maintained the care and tradition behind the creation of Werther's Original to bring you a range of different, yet equally delicious caramel confectionery.

1909

The invention

It happened in the little town or Werther, Germany in 1909. That is where confectioner Gustav Nebel created the now iconic Butter Candy recipe. He took fresh cream, real butter, refined white sugar, brown rock sugar, a pinch of salt and plenty of time to create the now globally famous Butter Candy.

Much has changed since then – and some things have stayed exactly the same as they’ve always been.
