SPANGLER CANDY CANE HISTORY
The A-Z Candy Company of Detroit, founded in 1935 and reported to be the largest candy cane maker in the nation, was obtained by Spangler Candy in March of 1954. The purchase included the machinery and trade names of the A-Z firm. Candy cane production was estimated to be twenty-five million pieces a year.
The A-Z Candy machinery was moved to Bryan. To accommodate the vastly increased manufacturing volume added by Christmas candy canes, more storage space was needed. A large one story air-conditioned warehouse was built, as was the first Quonset style building. The two additions provided 10,000 square feet of space and capability to manufacture candy canes year-round so that adequate inventory would be available to supply demand.
In the Fall of 1954, Spangler was ready for their first Christmas with peppermint candy canes. A highlight was a five boxcar order from the Great A&P Tea Company for their New England stores.
