December 2019: Warner’s Candies closed with the passing of owner George John Knauth https://www.facebook.com/warners.candies 🙁 According to a Yelp reviewer the building has also been demolished. 🙁
Original 2017 Post:
The Warner family started their candy business in a bakery in nearby Bristol, PA and moved their sweets business into this antique home in 1955. They added onto it a bit to accommodate their expanding business, but the low ceilings and hewn wooden beams confirm you’re in an old-fashioned space.
Pulling into the gravel driveway in front of the white stuccoed house with green shutters, you’ll spy wonderful hand-painted signs indicating what holiday is coming up in the candy world.
Step inside this old time confection shop, and you’re immediately greeted by a charmingly eclectic assortment of colonial inspired displays, wallpaper and linoleum flooring. You can see where the candy is made right through the window, and they continue to use the family recipes using nothing but fresh ingredients.
Chocolate covered buttercreams are a year-round favorite, and when in season their chocolate covered blueberries and strawberries draw folks from miles around.
This is the type of place you can imagine your grandmother getting some of Warner’s double dipped mints, to bring as a hostess gift to her weekly game of canasta, or for you to stop by anytime you need a sugar fix.
