First Chimes candies were made in Java, Indonesia in 1935. It was a collaboration between a young couple who just opened a café and a herbalist who just invented a new type of candies. The young couple started producing and serving these candies and they quickly became a real hit. The first recipe involved cooking tapioca starch, cane sugar, and fresh ginger together which resulted in this chewy delight. Over time, new formulas are added and now, you can choose between various amazing items such as Mango Ginger Chews, Peanut Butter Chews, Orange Ginger Chews and so on.
