Introducing Needhams!!

Introducing Needhams!!


As iconic to Maine as the lobster and the first sunrise, the Needham is  “a real Maine thing.”  It first appeared in 1872 in Seavey’s, at that time, a Portland confectionery, where an employee made a square chocolate covered treat of shredded coconut and mashed potato.  Yes, potato — the noble Maine spud. 

Bixby & Co. and R. H. Reny’s have teamed up to provide Mainers and their guests with Needhams year-round.  Our Needhams are crafted in small batches with all natural and non-GMO coconut and smooth potato dipped in rich dark chocolate. They are Kosher certified, gluten-free, and vegan. Needhams will be offered in 2-piece and 4-piece snacking pouches.    

In a recent taste test, Bixby Needhams were declared “the best ever” for their freshness and creamy consistency. 

 Needhams, “need’em.” A real Maine thing!
