History

The Wakarusa Dime Store has roots in the American dream. Mose Wolfberg, a German immigrant, traveled much of Elkhart County and beyond with a pack on his back, selling his wares from farm to farm. He eventually chose a permanent location for his budding business. In 1907 Mose opened Wolfberg's Department Store in the small north-central Indiana town of Wakarusa. A variety stores was soon added, which is today the Wakarusa Dime StoreTM.

In the late 1960's the task was assigned to Lou Wolfberg, Mose's son, to develop a new candy for the Maple Syrup Festival. The Jumbo Jelly BeansTM were introduced in 1969 and 100 pounds were sold that year. The sweet treat developed by Lou Wolfberg has become more famous that he ever could have expected. Today over 75 tons are sold annually. Building a following world-wide, the Wakarusa Dime Store Jumbo BeansTM have truly earned the title of "World Famous".

The Wolfberg family operated the store until 1983. The current owners bought the store in 1995 and continue to run it with the same commitment to quality and tradition as Wolfberg did himself. With equal parts fondness for yesterday and a vision for the future, the current owners have compiled the greatest assortment of fine candies along wtih nostalgic candies that will take you back in time to the days of your youth.
