Owned and operated by the Booe family since 1919, the true originator of bourbon chocolates use recipes from the early 1900's to make their famous 100-proof candy. Come visit the candy factory and see \"Edna's Table,\" a 12-foot curved marble table, and an antique candy furnace with hand-stirred copper kettles that are still used to this day. Included in the tour are an educational video and view of the candy production line, as well as a candy sample.
Went to Frankfort for a school trip at the State Capitol. Afterwards wanted to get some dessert we though we would go to a restraunt but we don't know the town that well because we live in the Cincy area and normally don't vacay in Frankfort (we ADORE Hilton Head Island). We saw Rebecca Ruth Candies and decided to try it. We adored it. Never had had a Bourbon Ball before, we came back 3 weeks later and loved it.... AGAIN. The white chocolate was superb and we adored the horseshoes. We went crazy and spend $30 dollars on chocolates. The even sell classics like PEEPS. An amazing place, please check it out!!! You will never ever EVER regret going REBECCA RUTH CANDIES!!!
Rebecca Ruth Candy Factory in Frankfort, Kentucky is still a unique family run operation that's worth stopping to see. They give personalized guided tours. They are the inventors of Bourbon Balls and let me tell you, they are simply a taste of heaven! This is a must see in Kentucky!
