Our Candy Americana Museum
Monthly Specials

 

~ Our Candy Americana® Museum ~

In 1972, the Candy Americana® Museum was created by Penny Buzzard, wife of former president John Buzzard. Penny went to antique shows and flea markets looking for old chocolate memorabilia. She gathered more than 1000 varieties of molds, tins, and boxes and displayed them in the museum. Business associates who learned of her efforts began to contribute pieces such as early candy machinery, marble slabs, starch trays, copper kettles, and so on. The prized collection of the museum has more than 150 hand- painted European and Oriental antique porcelain chocolate pots, some bearing the names Haviland, Limoges, and Dresden.

The Candy Americana® Museum started out as a one-room museum and has expanded slowly. In 1977, the modern candy kitchen was opened. The kitchen features handmade chocolates being created right before your eye including homemade marshmallow, almond bark, peanut butter meltaways, heavenly hash, mint drizzle, and almond butter crunch.

A video host takes you through the world of Chocolate. Starting with the history of the cocoa bean and ending with modern day products we crave today. Learn how Cortez’s discovered the “Food of the Gods” which started the chocolate craze in Europe and later came to America.

* Today, the museum is a major tourist attraction, yet there is still no admission charge!
