Was in the Candy House last week getting a gift. This is excellent chocolate, comparable to Harry and David or candy of that quality. There are lots of treats to chose from. They have all types of assorted candies from fudge to white chocolate popcorn to chocolate covered toffee just to name a few. During special holidays, they had chocolate... More

This was so much fun. We had never been in a chocolate factory so we were excited from the get-go. Unfortunately, we were running short on time before we had to hit the road and only had about 15-30 minutes tops to spare. The lady behind the counter said she would ask Andy if he could do a super quick... More

Recent transplants to Northeast Oklahoma, I was looking for a place to spoil my husband with gourmet treats. He has a very keen sweet tooth and looking around online led me to the Candy House. This place is full of charm, right down to lidded glass jars and individually hand crafted truffles. Attached are an ice cream parlor and an... More

A great place to go to buy gifts for anyone who enjoys chocolates. They have gift baskets and items made up for every occasion or can make them up when you go in. I've taken a container before and they've made up the gift item using that for me. All you do is pay for the chocolates/candy/items that go in... More

I sure am glad that my husband is a dentist. I sure am glad that he wasn't with me on this trip to visit family when we all went on a rampage through this faaaaabulous candy factory! It was 5:15 on a Saturday. They close at 5:30. I have been on the other side of that counter before and understand... More

They have a huge selection... It was hard to decide what I wanted to get! This is a perfect place if you are in need of gift ideas for birthdays, Christmas, etc. If you stop in during the summer months, be sure to bring a cooler!

We stopped in the Springfield,Mo store. The store displays are very attractive. Samples of their chocolates were served. More more than just chocolates in the store. Gift ideas. The store clerks were very personable. Can buy the candy by the piece or packages. Fun store!

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.
