Cow Tales History
Cow Tales candy is a type of chewy candy that is similar to caramel. It consists of a soft, creamy center that is made from a blend of caramel and fondant, which is then coated in a chewy outer layer. The candy is often sold in long, thin strips that are individually wrapped in wax paper for easy consumption.
Cow Tales candy was first created in the 1980s by the Goetze Candy Company, which is based in Baltimore, Maryland. The company's founder, August Goetze, had been making caramel candy in Germany since the late 1800s, and he brought his expertise to the United States when he immigrated in 1895.
Over the years, the Goetze Candy Company experimented with different variations of caramel candy, eventually coming up with the recipe for Cow Tales in the 1980s. The candy was an instant hit, thanks in large part to its unique combination of creamy caramel and chewy texture.
Today, Cow Tales candy is sold in stores across the United States and has become a beloved snack for people of all ages. The candy is available in several flavors, including the original caramel flavor, as well as strawberry, chocolate, and apple.
Cow Tales Memories
I grew up in the middle of rural Iowa, we were miles from anywhere. So when we got to go to town it was really a big treat. I remember going out in the cow pasture to met my grandfather on the way back from his daily walks.
I think he must have been 8 feet tall, anyway that's the way I remember. When he was feeling good, and in a good mood, he would lean down and ask me if I had been a good girl that day. of course I always was good!!! Then he would give me a cow tale stick, or if he had none he would give me a few pennies to save for the next time that I got to go to town.
I would be so rich that I could buy my own cow tales. They were always so sweet and creamy in my mouth. Sometimes I would even give my grandfather a little piece. I sure loved those cow tales, and this candy always brings back warm loving memories. Thank you!! ~ Lousena from Texas
