Candy house chocolates are delicious. Having been in business since 1970 they know their chocolates. They have a large variety of milk, dark and specialty candies. Their English toffee is to die for. They ship anywhere. I've been to several weddings where truffles were at the reception or had individual mini candy bars at the guest seats for the dinner.... More

Important to check times of tours before going. We were here too late but managed to get some wonderful nut caramel corn($1dollar off a package in Oct) and English toffee. Friendly staff handed me a sample of toffee which made it a sure buy. Marcydiner tantrum scale of 5/5-no screaming kids.

The Candy House offers kids' events throughout the year. We went for 4th of July and my son and nephew loved dipping their rice krispy treats and decorating them.

I've grown up with local candies from Laura Main's in Galena, KS to Richardson's in Joplin. It's always fun to go in and get a free sample, watch the employees making the actual candy, and of course buy my favorites. You simply cannot go wrong buying anything chocolate there, but I also love the fruit slices and the licorice carmel... More

I have had their chocolate before and it was great. This was the first time I have been to the store. There were two ladies working there, one very sweet and helpful but the other not so much. They had their chocolate priced by the 1/2 lb. I wanted to try many different ones and asked the sales lady what... More

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
