  • With its sister store (Canelakes Candy Kitchen, Virginia, MN), the best homemade candy I've ever eaten. Literally buy several pounds when I'm in the area, and ration it out so I can have a few...  more »
  • Super yummy candy! Perfect for a sweet treat and time out of the car. There were plenty of seats outdoors to sit and enjoy your treat. The bear walk was super cute! We loved all the pieces we tried!
  • Would definitely recommend bringing the family to this little sweet spot 😉 The staff were super awesome and really sweet, they let us take a stroll through their little kitchen which was awesome! The kids loved it! They had a wide variety of all kinds of sweet goodies! We LOVED LOVED LOVED their sweet cream caramels!!! Heaven!!!!! The chocolate covered ones were delicious as well! The lemon bark was bark-tactic!! They had the most awesome little space for kids to run around and bear hunt! The kids probably ran through it 50 times and wanted to go back for more fun!!! Glad we made the little drive out to this awesome place!
  • Nice people working the counter. So much to choose from. I got a few pieces of about 6 varieties. The mint melts in your mouth! And their coconut and almond thing is better then an Almond Joy! I can't wait to try the other things I picked out. At first I was like$9.50 for 1/2 a pound- ouch. When she told me I could get just one or a few of whatever. I was such a kid one of those. Two of those. Five of these. Just like a kid.
  • This cute little spot has a wonderful selection of candy, fudge, bark, and chocolates. Purchased some pistachio bark and loved it! There is also a large and comfortable seating area adjacent to the shop where you can sit and enjoy your treats. Well worth the stop for a cheerful spot!
  • Prices are a bit high, but so is the quality I strongly recommend the Bear Claws! Nice location, off the main bypass of 61, it's a small shop, with a friendly staff and nice candy selection.
