Uniquely Columbia: The Candy Factory

November 14, 2012

Family Fun, Shopping, Uniquely Columbia

The Candy Factory has been a Columbia treasure for over 30 years. If you’ve never been to this charming corner shop, there’s no better season to stop by and immerse yourself. During the holiday season, The Candy Factory has something for everyone on your list.

Located at the corner of 8th and Cherry, you can’t miss The Candy Factory welcoming you in to explore. During the holidays, beautifully decorated Christmas trees adorn the entryway and table after table is piled high with every imaginable type of treat.

Fill your basket with stocking stuffers like Katys, which begin with a bed of fresh pecans, almonds or cashews drenched with a layer of the Candy Factory’s mouth-watering secret recipe caramel, and finally topped by a pool of pure milk, dark or white chocolate. The Candy Factory also offers an array of chocolate covered goodies ranging from peanuts to cookies to potato chips. For true chocolate lovers, gift them with the Ultimate Chocolate Pizza. Rich, pure chocolate with fresh cashews, almonds, pecans, Brazil nuts, walnuts, raisins, and marshmallows creates an extraordinary deep dish. It’s then topped it with even more fresh whole nuts and cherries and drizzled with a white chocolate finale.

For those fancy folks in your life, The Candy Factory now offers artisan chocolates, which combine delicious chocolate with beautiful art. You can also please those old-fashioned candy lovers with everything from jelly beans to candy buttons. The Candy Factory also has other gift items including stuffed toys, wine stoppers, ornaments and more to add a little something special to your holiday.

While you’re there, be sure to ask if you can go upstairs and view The Candy Factory kitchen. The adorably decorated hallway gives visitors a peek into how the candy is made, making it a must see for all ages.

This holiday season, experience a little magic (and a big sugar high) with a visit to The Candy Factory. We’re sure you won’t want your first visit to be your last!
