Memorial Day Road Trip { Anoka Candy Store }

As Memorial Day approaches, I started thinking back when I was little.  Every, single, time we got in the car to take a road trip, up north, to the cabin, we made a candy stop before we left town.  My sister and I were each given a couple bucks and told to pick out whatever […]

Mary Jane Candy { Anoka Candy Store }

Have you ever tried Mary Jane candy?  (For us, it was usually what was left in the Halloween bucket when all the other candy was gone–but, it was still good, none-the-less!)  We like it much more as an adult and have grown to appreciate its classic, chewy, peanut butter and molasses flavor.  If you’re still […]

When the Easter Bunny Needs a Hand { Anoka Candy Store}

We love the Easter Bunny; however, sometimes it seems like he really likes to bring the same candy, year after year.  (Yes, they’re some of our favorites–but, something different would be delicious, too!)  Maybe this year, for Easter, it’s time to give that bunny a hand, or a hint.  This year, send him to Anoka […]

Candy or Medicine? { Anoka Candy Store }

I think the biggest question we have about Smith Brothers Throat Drops are whether you ate them when you were sick or whether you said you were ‘sick’ to be allowed to eat them? (I remember when we would eat them at school…we always felt like we were ‘getting away’ with something!  No candy in […]

PEARSON’S, Bit-O-Honey! { Anoka Candy Store }

We don’t know if you heard about the classic candy, Bit-O-Honey, but, they’re now being made here!  In Saint Paul, Minnesota.  In May of 2013, the Pearson company bought the nostalgic, little, chews from Nestle.  Yesterday was the first day of production in Saint Paul!  We feel like it’s a great fit for Pearson’s, we […]

Gifts are Fun! { Anoka Candy Store }

The other day we wrote a blog about what we overheard a customer say in the shop.  Remember the woman who had the idea to fill a basket with candy for her nephew’s birthday?  Well, we remembered!  After thinking about it some more, we decided to take that a step further and create some gift […]

Pop Rock Memories and Trivia, Anoka Candy Store

When you were a kid, did you ever fear the deathly, and explosive, combination of Pop Rocks and Soda?  Do you remember when that was the most scary thing in life?  Did you ever think about how mad your mom would be at you if you were to die of something so ridiculous?  As it […]
