JACKSON, MI — Jackson Candy & Fudge Factory is something out of another century.
The 1890′s-style candy shop at 1522 E. Michigan Ave. in Jackson features hard to find candies, chocolates, fudge and more.
“The main goal is to create an experience for anyone who walks in,” said co-manager Danielle Speed.
The building at the corner of Elm Street features copper ceilings, brick walls and an old-time charm. With a fun wheel, a funny mirror and lots of candies and chocolates to choose from, you may see something you haven’t seen in a while.
“A lot of the candies you can’t find elsewhere,” Speed said.
The business makes its fudge in-house but the chocolates come from Asher’s Chocolate Co. in Pennsylvania and the truffles come from Vermont, Speed said. The store also features a wall of taffy and lots of Jelly Belly jelly beans.
Speed loves her job in the shop.
“It’s a fun place to work,” she said. “I don’t think you can’t have fun working in a candy store. We get people who walk through that door to feel that happiness.”
Jackson Candy. & Fudge Factory is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Call 517-998-7070. For more information visit https://www.facebook.com/jacksoncandyandfudgefactory
