We are very excited that Fowler's made the Sunday NYT, mentioned in an article about Buffalo's favorite local foods. We're out to make Fowler's Sponge Candy much more than a regional favorite. Deliciousness like this shouldn't be kept to ourselves.

Excerpts from the article:
Beyond wings and weck, there are even more gastronomic wonders in Buffalo, some at a hyper-local level. “Boy, there are some foods that are really, really regional,” Mr. D’Imperio said. “You get to Rochester, they think you’re speaking a second language when you mention sponge candy.”
Sponge candy, a “cross between a little fluffy meringue cookie and a malted milk ball,” as Ted Marks, the owner of Fowler’s Chocolates, put it in Mr. D’Imperio’s book, was brought to Buffalo in the early 1900s by Joe Fowler, an English immigrant, who incorporated Fowler’s in 1910.
