As distinctive as Esther Price’s gold box, so is the taste of our chocolates. Esther Price Candies continues the tradition of old-fashioned quality using the same recipes that Esther Price herself perfected over 85 years ago! Many chocolates are still made by hand, just like in Esther’s day!Put Esther Price Fine Chocolates and other Dayton attractions into our Dayton online trip itinerary builder, and watch your holiday take shape.
It all began when Esther Price first learned to make fudge in her 7th grade Home Economics class. She was so excited she ran home and asked her mother if she could make more. Esther then branched into making chocolates which she would take to her co-workers at a department store in downtown Dayton, Ohio. After starting her family in 1926, these same co-workers encouraged her to continue making candy for them to buy. Her venture selling chocolates from her home business continued for 30 years. Then in 1952, Esther opened her first store on Wayne Ave in Dayton, Ohio, which is still our headquarters today! Little did Esther know that her passion for chocolate would grow into one of the most sought after chocolates in Ohio, as well as one of the finest candy-producing operations in the world!
It was Esther’s belief that fresh diary cream and butter make the difference in her recipes and she insisted on using only the finest ingredients available in every candy piece she made. To this day, Esther Price Candies continues to use locally produced milk and butter, fancy grade almonds, pecans, and cashews that are unmistakable in every delicious bite. Loyal consumers from all over the country enjoy the pure goodness of our chocolates made without the need for added extenders, fillers or preservatives. We still make all Esther Price Chocolates in Esther’s original plant location on Wayne Avenue. Esther would be so proud to know her chocolates were voted as the “Best of Ohio” by Ohio Magazine readers.
