Candies by Vletas
In 1912, two brothers, Nick and George Vletas emigrated from Greece to the United States, moved to Abilene Texas and established a candy business. Through two world wars , the depression and the roller coaster ride known as the oil boom, the Vletas remained strong. All the while, their secrets of fine candy making were handed down from generation to generation. Through the years, the reputation of Vletas’ candies has reached far past the boundaries of Abilene, even finding national recognition. Many important events have been graced by Vletas’ confections.
