Stutz Candy Shop – Right at the Factory! Hatboro PA

Posted on: May 8, 2017

When you’re in Hatboro visiting Daddypop’s Diner, Burdick’s News Agency or snapping a photo of  the zigzag roofline at Nu-Life Cleaners  if the sweet tooth strikes, then Stutz Candy Company is just around the corner.

Why sure, you could just pick up a national-brand candy bar anyplace, but the fun thing about visiting this Stutz Candy location is that it is also the factory where they make their own candy. That’s why they call it “Own Make” !

Boxes with colorful bows are ready for gift giving, or you can assemble your own assortment by making a selection from the glass cases. (Note that not every single piece of candy for sale is actually made here – there are so many varieties it would be impossible – so if you’re unsure, just ask.)

John Glaser, a 3rd generation candy maker from Dairy Maid took over the operation, moving the candy making to this location in 1976. Today his nephew (5th generation!) continues the tradition.
