Char-Val Candies dates back several years ago when it was founded by two gentlemen from Greece. At that time it was called Olympia Candies. When ownership changed years later, the name also changed to Char-Val Candies, which was derived from the new owners’ wives, Charlene and Valerie. The name has remained the same ever since, through four different owners. Char-Val continues to use the same original recipes and highest quality ingredients in all of its candies.
