“Chocolate nirvana”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

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 of Reddings Mill for candy and a scoop of Anderson's ice cream. If you are in a hurry they have a store in Joplin.
I must cut this short, I feel a chocolate craving coming on...

Awesome chocolate treats, Jelly Bellies, fudge, and friendly service. Great selection of sugar-free chocolates, too.

“Wonderful Homemade Candies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

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!

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

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.

“If you love chocolate . . .”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

You'll love visiting the Candy House. As far as I can see they have the best chocolates in the area. I have visited their main facility on South Main St. and love to visit the upstairs antique store right after I eat whatever samples they may have available.

Pleasant place to visit, eat candy, and shop. The prices of the chocolates seem competitive.
