Official statement from Winthrop’s Whimsies concerning Pride month

We created this company to bring joy into the world through our candies. Nothing more, nothing less. And so far, we like to think we have done that, and will continue doing so as long as we are able.

We fully and unabashedly support Pride month, and the entire LGBTQIA community. But you won’t see us changing our logo, or holding any “Pride Blowout sales,” or sticking little rainbow flags on everything. Because we don’t pander with pretty signs and words. We prefer letting our actions speak louder than our words. Not just during Pride month, but ALL the time.

For those of you who are reading this and thinking “Well, I’ll never buy from them since they support (Pride month/gays/lesbians/trans/non-binary/whatever),” that is entirely your choice, and we will not miss your lack of patronage.

No matter your age, skin color, where you live, or what you do, you deserve joy, equally and unreservedly. Who you love doesn’t matter to us.

What matters to us is that you bring joy to those you love, and that they bring joy to you too. And if we can help you do that, then we are happy to help any way we can.

So, with all sincerity and love, from everyone at Winthrop’s Whimsies, have a happy and joyful Pride!
