Back in 1946, Jon L Stopay (Sto-pay), affectionately known as Papa Jon, started making a scrumptious confection consisting of a melt-in your-mouth peanut butter center covered in rich milk chocolate. News of these delectable candies spread and soon he had buyers from all over the Wyoming Valley. He first opened a small store in Edwardsville. However, as his business grew he dreamt of opening a larger store. With Peanut Butter Chiffon as the signature product in 1979 Papa Jon, along with his wife Eva opened a larger store which continues to provide a wonderful selection for all candy lovers.
