Doval might not be a household name in candy, but it has been around since 1966, importing candy from South America, Mexico, and Europe. The company was started by a couple with experience importing candies. They were able to form their own business when a major retailer signed a large contract. While they're known for their Top Pops, large taffy on a stick, and crEATables, string candies that kids can combine, they're best known for setting a trend in the US. Sour gummies are widespread today, but in the early 80s they weren't a thing yet. Dorval released its Sour Power line in 1985, and the craze hasn't slowed down. While many other brands, including Trolli and Sour Patch Kids, have taken over much of the sour gummies market, Dorval continues today making its Sour Power Belts and Straws.
