A message from our CEO
DIVA LAUREN, CEO
At Patsy’s, we believe in making candy that whispers of history and heritage.
Having been established in Colorado over a century ago, our confections aren’t just known for their quality and ﬂavor, they are part of the community in Colorado Springs.
With recipes that have withstood the test of time, our confections are crafted with superior ingredients and an enticing history you can taste in every bite.
THE PATSY’S STORY
Patsy’s has called Colorado home since 1901 when Irish immigrant Patsy Mahoney founded a small candy company. His original recipes for caramel popcorn even became the inspiration for what is now a famous favorite American brand.
Through the years, Patsy’s has grown to include greater production capabilities and to create signature products including the Nugget line, award-winning toffee, peanut brittle and Colorado’s favorite popcorn in a variety of flavors.
Now under ownership led by Diva Lauren, a creative and dynamic business visionary, Patsy’s is embarking on a new journey offering contemporary retail packaging, a wholesale catalog, private label program and food service hospitality offerings.
