Our Story

The home of the famous Yorkshire Mixture, Joseph Dobson’s is a fascinating story of a family owned business, which has prospered to become one of the largest family owned confectionery manufacturers in England.

The company continues to manufacture high quality boiled sweets and lollipops to traditional recipes meeting all the challenges of a 21st century market place but also still maintaining the ‘old fashioned’ tastes and traditions of the 19th and 20th centuries.

Last week I was given a jar of your Butter Mintoes at the age of 75.  I must say these are the best sweets ever.
