Whitman's. Research Magazine Advertisements. The Best Resource on the Net of Vintage Ads! (1951) Whitman's Artist Sheilah Beckett. Sampler specially decorated for Easter. Whitmans produced the first pre-packaged candy in 1854; a box of sugar plums adorned with curlicues and rosebuds. Whitman began advertising in newspapers shortly before the beginning of the Civil War and the business grew so large that in 1866 the company occupied an entire building at 12th and Market Streets in Philadelphia. In 1877, he introduced Instantaneous Chocolates in tin boxes that became much-admired. The perennially popular and still best-selling Whitman Sampler was introduced in 1912, marking the first use of cellophane by the candy industry, and in 1946, helped General Electric to develop a refrigerated display case to guard the product against warmer temperatures and extend the selling season through the summer months. One of America's largest and oldest brands of boxed chocolates. Whitmans confections have been produced since 1842, originally by Stephen Whitman in Philadelphia. In the early 1960s, the Company was purchased by Pet, Inc. In 1993, Pet sold the Whitman brand to Russell Stover Candies.
