What is it like to experience a visit to Grandpa Joe’s Candy Shop?

The first thing you will notice is the outside appearance of the stores…the bright red, white, and blue colors; the retro logo. Instantly your eyes are going to light up, and for a brief moment, you will feel the anticipation of your childhood. This is going to be fun…

Once you step through the door, let’s be are going to be OVERWHELMED.

When we say “candy shop,” most people expect a glass counter, little shelves and displays, all spread out across a tiny store. Not at Grandpa Joe’s…

We aren’t kidding when we say that the stores are packed, wall-to-wall-to-ceiling. In fact, you won’t believe our selection. Over 250 candy bar varieties, incredible novelty gifts, 260 flavors of old-fashioned glass-bottled soda, and more!

There is so much going on here, you’re going to bounce from wall to wall. “Wow! You have sky bars and Necco Wafers!” you will say, before practically running into our Yum-Yum-Gum display and seeing over 100 unique flavors of gum. “What?! You have waffles and syrup flavored gum!?”

Now your eyes drift over to the dashboard Jesus, the hilarious coasters, the rubber chickens hanging from the ceiling, or the dozens of novelty socks we carry in all of our stores. Maybe you even stumble upon our “World’s Largest Gummy Bear” or wall of old-fashioned glass-bottled sodas.

At this point, you’re going to be stunned, and you’ve probably blocked out the sound of our staff’s friendly “hello!”

Don’t worry, we’ll snap you out of it and ask if there’s anything we can help you find, and in the meantime explain how our WORLD-FAMOUS $5 candy buffet works (no more plastic baggies and guessing how much a pound of candy is…you fill the box to the brim. If it closes, you take it home for $5).

Our in-store candy experts are passionate about serving our customers. Need a color-coordinated package for a graduation party or wedding? Let us help. Can’t remember what that candy bar you loved from the 70s was? We’ll figure it out for you (or die trying)! Need to buy a bag, a box, or a whole pallet of candy?! We can make it happen! We live to serve our amazing customers.
