Our Story

Sue Charney's love of making candy led to the formation of Red Rocker Candy, LLC in April 2002. She started off making toffees and other gourmet chocolates out of the basement of her home and traveled all around the state selling at Farmer's Markets, Fairs, and Craft Shows. After six years, sales increased to where she outgrew her basement kitchen and had to move to an outside production facility in Troy, VA.

In 2008, Sue began to experiment with the coating of pretzels in a silky, white confection, thus developing the company's signature and bestselling "Rocking Chair Mix®". Seeing that it also filled a void within the gourmet snack mix industry, Sue decided to expand that pretzel mix line in 2015 by offering it in a variety of other flavors.

Red Rocker Candy® gave birth to Red Rocker Foods™ in early 2023, bringing with it a non-chocolate, savory snack mix line in three fun, bold, and delicious new flavors.

Early in 2024, Red Rocker Candy® / Red Rocker Foods™ became part of the Virginia Diner Family. Sue continues to be instrumental in making sure that our most popular snack mix line will live up to the same great quality you have come to expect!

Made with love for those you love, our sweet and savory snack mix lines can be found in markets and gourmet stores across the United States.  We hope you and your taste buds, enjoy our mixes as much as we do!
