The candy is good, but several candy factories around the country have good candy and let you watch the processes. I suppose for Joplin, this is a high light.

If your mate wants to do this but you don't, GO. No admission and they ship any purchase if you want. All your favorites plus some unique items. Friendly staff and you can watch them make the chocolate.

It was ok, could see factory thru glass windows, but no tours on weekends. They have candy to taste, their candy comes in small bags, or pick them from the case. As well as others. An eclectic selaction. They are about $6 per 1/4 pound. We got a 1 pound bag of "oops" for $10, they had a nice selection... More

This little place is wonderful! The staff is very nice and knowledgeable about their products. You can get anything here from fancy truffles to Jelly Bellies!

You can take a tour which is VERY informative, about chocolate candy making... More

A Joplin tradition since I was a child (a while ago). Great dipped chocolate treats in milk or dark chocolate. They also have awesome fudge. I really don't know of anything that I wouldn't recommend. SOme of my favorites are the caramels, truffels, and marshmellow creme, all dipped in chocolate!!! If you have the chance, visit the original site south... More

We always visit the Candy House for special occasion gifts. Their candies are delicious and very well made. Their chocolate is killer! I get my boyfriend a full box of the milk chocolate squares and he devours them. They are his favorite chocolates!

In my opinion, Candy House chocolates compare with any of the large chocolate companies and I've tried them all! If you are in the area and just want to sample some candy or pick up a special gift for someone, this is a must. On certain days there are tours to observe the candy making process at no charge.
