Minnesota is full of delicious candy stores. These stores are the little shops you passed by as a child and dreamt of your favorite treats. Pearson’s and Abdallah candies are memorable to locals being around since 1909. In the southern part of the state, many locals still talk about the family-run business, Costas, that’s been making chocolates since 1919.

Today you’ll find the largest candy shop in the state found in Jordan and the small shop in south Minneapolis called Sugar, Sugar Candy. When you’re looking for the best candy shops in Minnesota, here are the places to go.

Canelake’s Old Fashioned Hand Made Candies – 414 Chestnut Street, Virginia

The oldest candy shop in Minnesota is Canelake’s Old Fashioned Hand Made Candies. You can find it in the Fitger’s building in downtown Virginia. Choose from hand-dipped delights, chocolates, fudges, peanut brittle, roasted nut candies or “Hot Air” that is like a sponge candy. The store dates back to 1905.

Candyland – 435 Wabasha Street North, Saint Paul

The most popular candy store in the state is found in Saint Paul, Candyland. You’ll find massive chocolate-covered cashew turtles, crunchy molasses bars and Penuchi Fudge.
