When Charles Brooks Oakford started a candy company in Merchantville, he didn’t want to use his family name. If the business failed, he reasoned, few people would connect it with the Oakfords. So he named it after his aunt, Charlotte. Aunt Charlotte's Candies started in 1920, making caramels in the basement of a Merchantville home then selling them from a Model T Ford that drove around town. The shop is now a fourth generation, family-owned, scratch making that original vanilla caramel plus a whole lot more. Promising "A Delight in Every Bite", the Oakford family is celebrating their 100th birthday this year, a very sweet milestone in Merchantville.
