The company was started by Charles Howard in New York City in 1934. In a small industrial loft on Broadway, Howard created the "Choward's Violet", a confectionery mint with a floral flavor. The next product was a purple colored gum tablet named "Choward's Scented Gum". The line was then expanded to include Choward's Peppermints, Spearmints, and Lemon Mints.
