Chewy, flavored nougat wrapped in a rich, chocolaty coating have made Charleston Chew an American favorite since its launch by the Fox-Cross Candy Company in 1922.
Charleston Chew is a household name across the east coast. This is delicious chewy nougat covered in a chocolate coating. It makes for a perfect afternoon pick-me-up, after-dinner treat or delicious snack whenever the craving hits. The chocolate bar was created in 1925 by the Fox-Cross Candy Company, founded by stage actor Donley Cross and his friend Charlie Fox. The candy pays homage to the popular dance, the Charleston, which inspired the name. Chocolate isn’t the only flavour. You can also indulge in a vanilla Charleston Chew right here.
