Fred W. Amend discovered a formula the solved the outbreak of weeping on the surface on jelly candies and began producing Chuckles Candy in 1921.

Amend’s wife suggested the name Chuckles@ and thetreat hit the market in 1921.

In 1974, the candy teamed up with Evel Knievel, the motorcycle daredevil during the time of his unsuccessful jump of the Snake River Canyon.

The “Even the name says fun” candy is still produced by Farley’s & Sathers Candy Company in Rounds Lake, MN.

Walldog Artist:
Mike Meyer (Danville, IL, formerly Mazzepa, MN)
Walldog sign and mural artists came from all over the world to enhance our community. They trace their trade back to the sign-painters of old who painted advertisements on walls. They worked like dogs in the hot son and thus came to be know as “wall dogs.”
