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.

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! They also make fantastic baskets and personalized gifts if you have a business that gives the goodness of chocolate at Christmas. 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
