R.M. Palmer Company has been crafting seasonal chocolate novelties since 1948. Today, more than 800 dedicated employees of this family-owned and operated business design, produce, package and ship more than 500 unique products from Palmer’s headquarters in West Reading, PA â€“ making it one of America’s largest and most innovative confectioners.
Through the years, R.M. Palmer has captured the nostalgia of the holidays with hand-decorated chocolate novelties that have transformed Easter baskets, Christmas stockings, and Valentine’s cards into fun memories. Â The company is the largest producer of hollow chocolate bunnies in North America.Â Anchored by icons like Baby Binks, R.M. Palmer has turned figureless chocolates into whimsical characters with personality. Â Â Most bows are still hand tied and most icing decorations are still made by hand â€“ just as they were back in 1948.
Strategic licensing partnerships are also a core component of R.M. Palmerâ€™s success.Â Our licensing history has included brand properties such as NASCAR, Disney, Marvel, and Duck Dynasty.Â Current licenses include Crayola, Dr. Pepper Snapple Groupâ€™s Yoo-Hoo, and Hallmarkâ€™s Maxine and Shoebox brands.
The product line today includes a wide assortment of chocolate confectionery treats for holidays, celebrations and everyday enjoyment, all proudly manufactured at one of our company-owned, SQF Food Safety certified production facilities in Berks County, Pennsylvania.Â Distribution is national and includes select international markets.
