Josh Early Candies is the best by far candy store. Considering you don't really find stores like this anymore. You walk in and it reeks of chocolate, the best smell ever. The ladies are so helpful and friendly. The dark chocolate cashew patties are by far the best! They also have a nice selection of Milk Chocolate, Dark Chocolate, Sugar... More

Homemade chocolate of every kind. They have beautiful foil covered leaves for Fall that are decorative and yummy. Friendly, knowledgable staff. Wonderful gifts to use with or without candies as a gift. Very large parking lot.

Josh Early chocolate candy is a hand made, all natural and no preservative added candy. I think it is probably the best chocolate candy in Pennsylvania. I have tried many hand made chocolate candies in PA. For me, hands down, Josh Early Chocolate Candy rises above the rest. Preservatives can give chocolate candy a very waxy, off taste. This chocolate... More

Let me set the tone by first stating that we've done our part over the years to support Josh Early Candies. Today I stopped in to the Nazareth Road store to purchase a "small" amount of candy for a birthday present. I was looking for a box, since a bag just wouldn't look right as a present. I was told...

There are two or three in the area. The chocolate is very good. I would say ,much better than Godiva, definately. It gets very crowded during the holidays. Definately go here for your next indulgence.

Josh Early is worth a trip... Stepping into the store is like stepping back in time. The service and atmosphere is from a time when friendliness, packaging and display was paramount. High quality chocolate and candy, huge variety, delightful staff. I felt like a kid again in 1962....

WE rode past three of four times and then we had to go in . The employees could not have been more helpful and sweet. The chocolates were the best. If you go be prepared to walk out with bags full.

We could not believe the number of ways this company produces quality chocolates. They also have many other types of candies that they make on premises. So glad we took the ride and made our purchases.

This is our favorite local chocolate shop. We love the way it smells when we walk in - it's such a treat. The chocolate tastes fresh and absolutely delicious. It's especially fun around the holidays when there's a buzz in the air - it's busy - and the decorations are old fashioned and sweet. All the cashiers are kind, helpful... More
