What is the history of trolli eggs? Because those are my most recent candy obsession....

The TROLLI company history began in 1948. Willy Mederer, father of today's owner, Herbert Mederer, began producing noodles and pasta under the company name: Willy Mederer KG. Soon thereafter, the formerly rationed sugar rules (during the war), were relaxed and the range of products from the Mederer Group could be expanded - particularly to the production of peppermint candies. Following this expansion, a sales team was created to organise the company´s marketing.
Willy Mederer attempted to expand throughout the 1950s and 60's. As the product range widened and the number of employees increased, the Mederer Group augmented production with new machinery to satisfy increasing demand. From then on, Willy Mederer decided to distribute products under the brand name "Wilmed." Jelly-fruits, cream drops and other products were made by 150 employees. Sales offices in Münich and Stuttgart were then created. At the age of 17, Herbert Mederer, current CEO was integrated into the company while simultaneously attending the Candy School of Solingen, where he studied to become a confectioner.
