Timeless Chocolate Confections Since 1918
For nearly a century, Frango has been melting hearts in America—starting from the time it was first offered as a frozen dessert in the tea room in Seattle’s Frederick & Nelson department store.
At the beginning of the Great Depression in 1929, Chicago-based Marshall Field & Company purchased Frederick & Nelson and its beloved Frango recipes. Frederick & Nelson chocolatiers were quickly dispatched to the Windy City to teach Marshall Field’s staff how to prepare the iconic Frango Mint—expanding the appetite for this delicious, unique treat.
Over the years, new chocolate recipes joined the Frango family to meet shifting tastes and growing demand. Beloved by millions for nearly a century, Frango is a one-of-a-kind treat to commemorate any occasion, from the everyday to the extraordinary.
Ahead of its time as a premium chocolate, Frango continues to occupy a treasured place as one of America’s best-loved confections.
