The story of how Eda’s came to be is bittersweet, with both tales of hardship and ultimate success weaved through it like colorful threads in an intricate tapestry. It all started in Poland during the late 1930s, where Paul Lehman and his future wife, Eda, were a courting couple. Their union was torn apart when World War II began, and both were sent to separate concentration camps. Miraculously, both survived and reconnected years later and went on to marry, have children and move to the United States. After discovering a growing need in the market for high-quality candies, Lehman started his own confectionery business, experiencing ups and downs that were reminiscent of an epic novel. This line of sugar free candy is now owned by Brian Berry and are naturally sweet treats available in flavors as diverse and unique as the story behind their creation!

Fun Fact- One of Eda’s ingredients is what’s called sorbitol, and although it sounds like a manmade chemical, its actually a naturally occurring compound found in fruits like apples, pears, peaches, apricots, and cherries. First discovered in 1872, this sweetener is used in a myriad of food products and medicines and has a well-established safety profile confirmed by health authorities with the Food and Drug Administration, the World Health Organization, the European Union, and the countries of Australia, Canada, and Japan. The use of sorbitol in candy has brought celebration among dentists because it does not cause cavities, as well as great relief to people with diabetes because of its minimal impact on blood sugar levels. The best part about this sweetener is the fact that it leaves no undesirable aftertaste, so all you taste is sweet, fruity flavor!
