Dinstuhl’s Fine Candy Company, Inc.

Memphis, TN

Sweet Spot: Chocolate Fudge, Cashew Crunch

Life Story

Now a two-family business in its fifth generation, Dinstuhl’s has been a Memphis landmark since 1902, every bit as iconic a part of the city’s culture and reputation as Graceland, Beale Street and Sun Studios.

Why Peter’s?

“Dinstuhl’s has been using Peter’s Chocolate since our earliest days in business. We have tasted chocolate from around the world, and in our opinion, Peter’s is, by far, the best.”

Point of Pride: Elvis shopped here.

As the signature chocolate makers of our home city, the Dinstuhl and Moss families have been called upon to make custom products for dozens of signature institutions and events, including Super Bowl XL, the Kentucky Derby, the NBA Finals and the Breeder’s Cup as well as for Graceland and the King himself.

Words of Wisdom

“Learn the basics and be patient. Prepare to be in it for the long haul. Fads will come and go, so stick with what works, but don’t be afraid to be creative and adventurous.”
