I have been doing business with Chef Ivo for many years! He still is not disappointing! The apple hickory bbq sauce is so good. He has a way with sauces and dips and well just about everything. The gentleman at the front desk was awesome and the person giving out sample was great as well. Highly recommend.

My girlfriend and I stopped in during a Saturday in Galena, and we had no idea that the entire store was designed for sampling. We basically ate lunch, then forced ourselves to pick one thing to take back with us. (We settled on a bottle of infused olive oil.)

The main store is good, but make sure not to miss the hot sauce outpost across the street. More samples. So many hot sauce (and condiment) options!

Two sides of Main St: one shop has hundreds of varieties of hot sauces & spicy items and is the location of Chef Ivo's kitchen. He does the canning of the most wonderful variety of products. The store across the street has lots of jams, jellies, salsas, barbecue sauces etc.
So many taste treats..so little time!

Well set up with many samples to try. But difficult to get any help. When time to pay for my selection, the older lady and young man continued their conversation and ignored me. They both looked at me standing at the counter and continue to talk as if I wasn't there!

Was really excited to check this place out. The rude, condescending kid that works there changed that really quick. Really disappointing, won’t be going back there! This was our first time in galena and we carried our dog in to see if it was ok he said it wasn’t so I left then he berated my husband in front of other customers. It was really unprofessional and not necessary. A lot of places have let us in with our (small) dog, the kid didn’t have to talk down to my husband, bad business practice.

This place has samples. It has hot sauces. It has jelly and salad dressing. It has chips. And it has very offensive, tasteless, vulgar products out on the check-out counter. Think Spenser's Gifts. These items have nothing to do with the rest of the items in the store. They are simply there (in my opinion) to offend the customer, degrade women and show a shameless disregard for children.
When I complained to the clerk behind the counter, she was rude and seemingly clueless.
I love hot sauces as well as some of the other products that can be found in this establishment. However, those same items can be purchased elsewhere. Therefore, I will not be back to this place. Nor will the many friends in my circle of friends. Maybe if enough people speak up about this, the owners will get the message and pull the offensive products.
Rude. Offensive. High priced. Why in the world would anyone knowingly shop at the Galena Canning Company? It appears to me that they really want to run their customers off.
I wish I would have had this information before the visit, I would never have gone into the store.

Fun place to sample and buy many flavored dips and spreads. Beware that although it is a family atmosphere there are dirty novelties at the checkout counter in plain site children. When we pointed this out to the manager, instead of a polite "thank you for your opinion" we were told "There's the door, make use of it!" I would think any business owner would value opinions and feedback from customers (weather they act on it or not). The rudeness we were shown just for expressing our opinion was uncalled for, and we will never return.

They have a huge selection of jams, jellies, sauces etc etc! And they provide samples so you can taste old favorites or try something new. I love their sugar -free preserves. Their fig preserves are especially tasty as is the lemon curd.

I have to come here every time I am in Galena. I love sampling their dips, spreads, jellys, jams, rubs, etc. I always leave with something new and typically pick up something from the last time.
