LAMMES CANDIES is an Austin orginal with true Texas history: William Wirt Lamme opened his doors on Congress Avenue here in Austin in 1878. After the business was lost in a poker game, in 1885, William’s son, David Turner Lamme, came to Austin and repaid the $800 debt. He reclaimed the Red Front Candy store as his own and it has been family owned and operated ever since. We absolutely love their TEXAS CHEWIE PRALINES & CHOCOLATE LONGHORNS and we know your family & friends will too!
