Muth’s Caramel Modjeskas Louisville’s Candy: This irresistible combination of a soft deluxe marshmallow gem and a butter and cream caramel, was created in Louisville by Anton Busath. He named it for a very famous Polish actress who appeared in Louisville several time in the 1880’s, Helena Modjeska.
It was nearly six years after Helena’s last performance in Louisville that Anton Busath perfected his “caramel marshmallow wonder.” Since Busath had been so close to the theater and seen Helena he knew what a beautiful and talented woman she was and asked if he could name his creation after her, and with her blessing he named the candy Modjeska. In gratitude Helena sent Anton an autographed portrait of herself. This portrait hung in Busath’s Candy Store on fourth street until a fire that destroyed the building in 1947.
In late 1947, when the fire destroyed Busath’s Candy Store on Fourth Street Edgar Busath (Anton’s son) asked a good friend Rudy Muth (a confectioner with a store on East Market St) if he could use Rudy’s kitchen to make candy for his family and close friends for Christmas. Rudy Muth agreed and the two shared the kitchen. When the holidays were over and the Busath family could not reopen their store on Fourth St. they decided if they couldn’t be on 4th street they did not want to reopen. After the decision to not reopen as a thank you for sharing his kitchen Edgar Busath gave Rudy the recipe for the Modjeska.
