Jolly Rancher is a candy brand that has been around since 1949. The company was founded by Bill and Dorothy Harmsen in Golden, Colorado. The name Jolly Rancher was chosen to give the impression of a friendly Western company. The Harmsens opened their first Jolly Rancher Ice Cream Store on May 28, 1949.
Initially, the Jolly Rancher Company only made hard candies. These candies were sold in various flavors, including watermelon, grape, apple, and cherry. Over time, the company began to expand its product line to include other types of candy, such as lollipops and gummies.
