Tacoma has a rich and tasty history as a major destination for the manufacturing of delicious treats. It is the birthplace of Almond Roca, Mountain Bars, the hometown of one half of Baskin Robbins, and where the first Mars Bar was created. Tacoma is also home to the famous Johnson's Candy Co, some of the nation's best donuts, and more.
