|Herbert Haven founded Haven's Candies in 1915, after following his sweetheart from Boston to Portland. They courted and married, and soon Herbert and his new wife were handcrafting candies in their kitchen and selling them from the front parlor of their house on Forest Avenue. As the son of skilled candy makers, Herbert brought both premium quality and creative originality to his products. Over the years many confectioners have come and gone in Maine, but few have stood the test of time like Haven's. Today, Haven's continues to thrive by sticking to its roots. We still handcraft our candies using traditional methods, the finest ingredients and a commitment to superior quality. Self-directed window tours are available any time the store is open at no charge. Guided factory floor tours are available by appointment at a cost of $2.50 per person, minimum of $25 per party.
