Do you know about Abdallah Chocolate and Candies? (Well, you probably know they’re delicious–but, other than that, what do you know?) Do you know that we proudly sell the Minnesota made candy here at Sweet River Candy Company? Here are a few fun facts about the company:
-They’re a MN candy company that has been around since 1909. They’re still family owned–fourth generation!
-Their first shop opened at Lake and Hennepin. (Uptown!) They sold candy, cigars, flowers and fruit.
-In 1937, After the Great Depression, they reopened in a new location–closer to Lake Calhoun. They opened a one-of-a-kind, walk-away, ice cream window.
-Today, they’re still going strong. They are now located in Burnsville and they make over 200 of their chocolates and candies right on site! (You can even watch them make most of it!)
We love them, and their company, and are PROUD to carry many different varieties of their treats. We change many of their products in, and out, seasonally; so make sure to stop in often to see what we have! If you would like to check out their website yourself, click HERE.
