Helen Elliot Candy
Candy Store in North Plainfield, NJ suposedly sold out to Gertrude Hawk Chocolates
Helen Elliott had several stores, one right in Paramus NJ, only 1 mile from my house back in the 70's. It moved to a much smaller
store in the early 80s and closed a few years after so only the main store in Plainfield was purchased by Hawk. alexm40

Afternoon,
As a kid I remember lugging cases or Helen Elliott Candy hammers from the back stock room to the
from of the store when the Sales Girls would pack coal candy. I worked there on and off for 15 years. My
Mother was the President of Helen Elliott Candy for about 30 years. It brought back a lot of memories to
see your hammer. Chances are I carried it at one point in time.

Helen Elliott candy started on 5th Street in Plainfield near City Hall. As it grew the space shrunk so they moved the main
manufacturing to Rt 22 West in North Plainfield. They had five main store, Plainfield on Front St next to the Strand Theatre, Millburn,
Chatham, Paramus. They were also in many drug stores. The original owners were linked to Burry Biscuit Company.  
To tell you the truth, I don't ever remember the trucks, I will have to ask my Mother.
It was a wonderful place to grow up. It is a shame, places like Helen Elliott's were place where quality was the norm and people
traveled from around the world to shop there when ever they were in the area are now gone. I even remember Rudy Valley and Kate
Smith coming it.
Well, I hope that helps to fill in the blanks.
Best, Mike
