The place is hard to find, terrible location. We got there about 2:30 and as we were driving in the woman that was working there pulled up in her car and told that they were closing early and she was just leaving. Didn't even get to see the place. Don't waste your time , if you manage to find it... More

The Candy House makes all of their chocolate in house. It is the most delicious and decadent chocolate ever. I love their chocolate covered strawberries, their malted milk balls and their chocolate caramels

What can I say about the salted caramels? I guess , at the end of the day , if I had to pick between Salted Caramels and a beating, I would take the beating if it meant I could have the salted caramels...

The reason I ranked this "attraction" as three stars is because it really is just a store. We were there at 2:30 in the afternoon during the week and there was no candy being made. There are glass windows along the wall so if people are making candy, people can actually see the process. No real "tour" though. On the... More

How can chocolate rate anything but 5 stars. Candy House Chocolates are soooo good. I think their toffee is my favorite -- at least until I think about their salted caramel. Then I'm not so sure. And their turtles. How can I choose?? Try them all. Good stuff!

This is your average gourmet chocolate house. The chocolates were delicious and they give your samples. It is expensive but what can you say - it is gourmet chocolates. Look to the sale area where past holidays are on sale and you can get some great deals. I loved the chocolate covered toffee...it was awesome. My husband and nephew loved... More

Although closed in Redding's Mill, the original location, they are still open at 5th and Virginia. Quality and selection are the same. Your frequent shoppers card has become useless. They are transitioning to new owners and in this interim, things are a bit awkward but still going.

The business has moved locations through the years but the quality & flavors have remained constant - excellent!! There are new owners in transition now and I am expecting, based on the quality reputation of the Candy House as well as the new owners reputation for excelling, that the fine delicacies I enjoyed for over 20 years will remain constant...
