As you bite into one of Lee's fine chocolates you will discover something very special and different about Lee's smooth and creamy hand rolled, hand dipped chocolates. That is because there is over 80 years of candy making experience in every piece. In the early 1900's L.G. Nokleby traveled the country working for the finest confectioneries developing his superior recipes. After establishing several elite candy and ice cream stores he fostered a motto that has remained to this day, "Never Change Your Quality."

As a young boy, Curtis Nokleby, Lee's son started learning the magic that goes into each and every piece of candy.
