About Anastasia Confections, Inc.
How It All Began
The founder of Anastasia Confections, Inc. was first inspired after managing a tourist gift shop in Pompano Beach, Florida in the early 1980’s. During that time, several visitors came into his store frustrated and unable to find quality candy gifts and souvenirs to bring home from their vacation.
Seizing the opportunity, he decided to create a premium candy line specifically for Florida tourists that focused on better tasting candy, higher quality ingredients, and more appealing packaging.
From his kitchen, he cooked up the first batch of Fudge-A-Gators™. Less than a year later, he perfected one of Florida’s staple candies and added the now-famous creamy Coconut Patties to his growing line of products. The confections were first sold through his tourist shop, but it wasn’t long before many other local shops and citrus stores picked them up as well. Anastasia Confections was officially incorporated in 1984.
