This is the oldest continuous candy store in America and I frequent it often. Still making chocolates by hand and oh so good. The hot fudge recipe is from Germany and has been used for years. Do come to Circleville and enjoy Wittich's.

Thank you, Kim G, for visiting our shop! We are indeed Old School, keeping with our traditions that began nearly 180 years ago. Thank you for taking the time to write a review and we hope to see you again!

Their chocolate does not taste like a typical candy bar... it is more "pure" so it also is softer and might melt faster, but it is delicious. Also, some of the candy is made right next to where you shop so you can watch how...they hand-dip and form the chocolate candy right there. For a simple little shop, it was well worth the visit!More

So glad this gem is still going strong. Employees were so friendly. Soda, sundae was absolutely delicious. Lots of different candy to choose from, some just too cute. Price was reasonable for handmade chocolate. Chocolate soda was so good and reminded me of old soda...fountains of days gone by. A must stop if your in the area.More

I stopped in here with my daughter one day and we browsed a little, bought a few pounds of various goodies and a few milkshakes. I could've sat at that old fashioned soda fountain all afternoon and just looked around. If anyone is in the...Circleville area, this is a MUST stop for you. They have something for everyone here and it is all delicious!More

It was great to find a place that makes sodas and phosphates still! Brought back memories from when I worked at a drug-store soda fountain.
