No pandemic refunds

THE CANDY FACTORY has no idea that a PANDEMIC occurred in this world. We bought a baby shirt for our grandson ....about a year ago. We could not travel to California to give this gift because California, along with many other states, was SHUT DOWN. Babies grow fast. The 6-9 month old t shirt of course was too small by the time we were both vaccinated and able to travel to California. The young females at this store were extremely unsympathetic to our wish to EXCHANGE the t shirt. To my horror, my husband still purchased candy from this store. THIS WILL NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN. Have a heart, Candy Factory. I will be sharing my story.

Everything You Need!

Beautiful store. It has a sophisticated look, but maybe a bit overcrowded.
But, it has all the variety that one needs. It seems every flavor is represented. There are also many fun chocolate shapes and animals. There are even chocolate frogs for the Harry Potter fan. The Katy's are delicious and the staff attentive and helpful.

Those Katys! Wow!
Nov 2020
The Candy Factory opened the year I graduated from college in Columbia, Mo., and I have been buying their Katys every year since, regardless of where I live. Customer service is always excellent. One year, they sent cashew Katys instead of pecan, and just sent me the pecan ones (and let me keep the cashews). I order for friends around the country for the holidays, and some of them have made it a point to stop in Columbia whenever they're driving on I-70. The Katys are unique, with lots of creamy caramel and that disk of chocolate on the top, far better than any turtles I've had.

Great Candy!

Ordered some salted caramels, coconut clusters and bear claws--all were delicious. They have other items such as holiday items, stuffed animals etc...to purchase. Good to store to browse around.

More chocolate than candy
Jul 2020 • Family
We are new to Columbia and our realtor gave us a gift box of chocolate covered cookies from here. They were excellent. He also told us you can watch them make goodies in their factory so we thought we would go check it out. Well due to covid the viewing area is closed, which is absolutely understandable. I was a bit disappointed though in the selection of goodies. They're more of a home-made chocolate treats store, with a sprinkle of candy and gifts. Don't get me wrong the chocolate looked wonderful, but we decided not to get any that day because it was so hot outside and we had more errands to run so it would've melted in the car. If you're not a big chocolate fan than your options of candy will be small.

Good quality candy

Enjoyed taking my grandson by to see how candy was made and to get some good quality candy. He enjoyed the trip as he says he is going to own a candy shop some day!

We had a great time deciding which candies to purchase at this amazing place. They had a huge variety of sweets and gifts to choose from. The prices were reasonable too!

Nice selection of sweets, gifts, and decor. We bought fudge to take home to our kids, a cute set of matching dad-and-baby socks, and a stocking stuffer (a magnet with a bible verse) for one of our kids. I highly recommend the peanut butter patties! 😋

Delicious stop
Jun 2019 • Family
We went on a day that the factory wasn't running, but we still went up to the viewing room to check it out. We got a pretty good sampling of the chocolate and everything was delicious. The chocolate covered strawberries and raspberries were amazing.
