HISTORY of WALES HOME-MADE JELLIES Way back in 1867, when Andrew Jackson was President, the Wales Kitchens had become famous in New England. At the exhibitions held at local fairs, Wales Home-Made Jellies were always recognized by their clearness, firmness and delicious flavor soon won a wide reputation outside of their own neighborhood. Only cane sugar and pure fruit juices were used and the same high standards of purity are maintained today as they were sixty years ago .... The fruits from which Wales Home-Made Jellies are still produced locally from the surrounding countryside, thus making possible the use of the very best of fruit in its freshest and most perfect condition. The result is a clear, firm and sparkling jelly with its rare piquant and fruity flavor which has made the Wales Kitchen famous. (REFERENCE: The Wales Company - Color Print Ad - C. 1920)
