Started in 1868, Watkins began making simple products for the average household.

From natural liniments, to salves for livestock and eventually cooking and household items, Watkins expanded it’s product offerings and the regions in which it served.

America’s first ‘money-back guarantee’ was born! It was realized customers needed an option to try before they buy and to have confidence in a company to offer such an option.

The ‘trial-mark’ bottle was designed to have a line created on the product, allowing the customers to decide if they like the products. If they did not like the product they could send it back for a full money back guarantee provided they had stayed above the trial line marking.

Today, Watkins still offers a money back guarantee no matter where on the bottle you are! Your satisfaction is top priority!

Time for expansion: Between 1889 and 1914 Watkins constructed six new manufacturing buildings behind the adminstration building.

If you have tried Watkins products you will most certainly agree our spices and extracts are truly top notch!

Paris International Exposition: Watkins wins gold medal awards for 3 of it’s main cooking/baking products. Vanilla Extract, Cinnamon and Black Pepper take the show and win the awards which you will still see on their packaging today!

A company does not stay in exsistence for over a century without having some part to play in history.

World War II: Watkins gave 90% of it’s production capacity to the war efforts, fullfilling government contracts for products like dried eggs powdered juice packets, vitamins, hospital germicide and insecticide powder.

The very first sales person for the Watkins company. The Watkins Man was the term given to the salesmen who would travel business to business and farm to farm, selling Watkins products.

There are many stories about the Watkins man driving up in his horse and buggy, visiting the farms. Kids would come running from across the fields to see what treats he had for them, Mom would bake a fresh pie and then he would open his briefcase with the available Watkins products.

To this day, many people recall the Watkins Man and the wonderful memories from the past!

By far Watkins has some of the most amazing products; especially their cooking and baking line of products!

Always top quality, fresh and amazing; having Watkins in your kitchen is a must! Read on to see our top selling products!
