Return to Classics

Here's a 1938 vintage Fanny Farmer candies box. For those of you who don't know, she wrote an extremely popular cookbook in 1896 which came to be known as The Fannie Farmer Cookbook. As you can see here, her image personifies the classic candy image of the kindly woman who could be your mother who tirelessly busies herself with the candy thermometer and the apron and gloves as she almost scientifically creates the perfect home made sweets for your idyllic party under a harvest moon.
