Proof the American dream is alive and sweeter than ever, East Coast chocolate maker Goldenberg’s Peanut Chews continues their tradition of sugary excellence, while supporting both servicemen and women.
Founded in 1890 by Romanian immigrant David Goldenberg, the Philadelphia-based Goldenberg Candy Company quickly built a following up and down the Atlantic Coast. It didn’t take long for the high-protein candy bar to catch the attention of the U.S. Military, resulting in Peanut Chews being packaged into World War I military rations (starting in 1917).
Nearly 100 years later, Peanut Chews has continued its commitment to the USO, through fiscal donations to the National USO General Fund, as well as donating 5 cents from every bar to military families in need.
