While Tom Henry was working in Arkansas City
in 1919, he created a candy bar and called it the Tom Henry bar. Slight changes
were made to the recipe and it later became the Oh Henry! bar that is known
A few years later, Tom opened a candy store
in Little Rock, Ark. In 1956, his son, Patrick, opened Henry’s Candy Company in
Dexter in Cowley County. Patrick’s daughter, Evelyn Henry Pudden, and other
family members still run Henry’s Candies some 60 years later and make more than
100 different varieties of sweet treats. They even use some of the equipment
from their grandfather’s former store.
The store in Dexter also features a Momma
Henry bar that uses the original Tom Henry bar recipe. Henry’s Candy Company is open
363 day a year (closed Christmas and New Year’s Day), but they don’t make candy
