About Us

Our Beginnings

Merb's Candies proudly traces its origins back to 1921, nestled in the heart of St. Louis, Missouri. Established by a visionary female entrepreneur, our doors have remained open at the same iconic location for over a century, involved in countless sweet memories shared by our patrons.

Our Legacy

The current family took over in the early '70s, nurturing and expanding upon the legacy of this cherished local brand. We don't merely see ourselves as candy-makers; we are stewards of a rich tradition that stretches back through generations.

Our Patrons

Our passion is fueled by the countless customers, both local and national, whom we've had the privilege to serve over the years. From elders who have relished our sweets for seven decades to teenagers just beginning to forge memories with our products, we cherish the opportunity to be part of their stories.
