Choward’s is a registered trademark of C. Howard Co., Inc. 1007 Station Road Bellport, NY 11713
C. Howard Company Inc. was started by Charles Howard, of New
York City in the early 1930's. Mr. Howard , in search for a "unique
and different flavored candy", concocted a delightful confectionary
mint called, "Choward's Violet", in a small industrial loft on Broadway.
His first retailing experience was selling "Choward's Violet" on
the street corners in Manhattan, where the product's reputation grew.
On the heels of "Choward's Violet" success, Mr. Howard then
introduced to New Yorkers a purple colored gum tablet, and
named it "Choward's Scented Gum". In years to come,
Charles Howard expanded his candy line to include
Choward's Peppermints, Spearmints, and Lemon Mints.
Upon the passing of Mr. Howard, the company carried on under
the leadership of Elizabeth Juhase, a long time valued employee.
In the 1970's, Elizabeth enlisted the help of her nephews, who to this
day operate the company as a family concern. The company continues to
manufacture the original line of quality products started by
Mr. Charles Howard. These products are now sold through out
much of the United States as well as Bermuda and Puerto Rico.
