Happy Memorial Day!
May 29th, 2021
A Happy Memorial Day to you and yours! As we celebrate, we remember those who gave so much...some their life...so that we can enjoy the incredible freedoms we have in America. "Thank you" seems
Memorial Day also marks the beginning of a special season...one of beaches and barbecues and being outdoors, all especially welcome this year. We can't wait to be outside again, and to visit...IN PERSON...with our loved ones!
But don't be fooled by the warmer weather!
GROVE'S is OPEN FOR BUSINESS, and we have lots of treats that are "summer appropriate".
From homemade caramel popcorn to sweet creamy chocolates to gourmet coconut slices and more, Grove's can still satisfy your sweet tooth. Whether you are feasting at home, or while on vacation, or even while you are travelling, you deserve the best...that's GROVE'S!
So make GROVE'S CANDIES at 1624 East Chocolate Avenue in Hershey PA part of this special season!!! And be sure to hug on your loved ones...
Now you can!
Best From a Flag-Wavin' American,
Grove's Candies Go International...

Imagine my utter shock and surprise when I received a call from Afghanistan! It was from an American soldier who is stationed there. Imagine!
When I was done saluting, I heard his request:
Could I please create an Easter basket for his wife? It would be picked up and delivered by his wife's sister who is local. He said that he sent her some of our candies last year and it made her cry!
Moral of the story? There are several:
Grove's Candies are tasty enough to be thought about across the globe.
Grove's Candies become a family tradition.
Grove's Candies are so good, they make people cry. Well that and other things...
So now, "local person", you have no excuse!
Visit our shop at 1424 East Chocolate Ave in Hershey, and try our homemade, handmade candies. You won't be sorry. You may cry...you may salute!

Thanks to all of you for making the Valentine's season such a hit!
We did some things wrong...and we learned A LOT. You'll see some changes implemented for the next holiday.
BUT, judging by your response, we did many more things right! YAY US!
Our chocolate strawberries were the most in demand. Did you know that there was a severe cold snap in Florida that caused a scarcity of strawberries? Fortunately, I ordered mine back in December which meant I was high on the list to get the best available...And if you saw them you know my persistence paid off!
Now that Valentine's day is behind us...although it seems that the snow is not...we are busy getting ready for the Easter season. As you know, this time of year is long associated with chocolate and candy!
GROVE'S CANDIES at 1424 East Chocolate Ave has the best homemade eggs (peanut butter and others, to be discussed in future blogs) and Custom made Easter baskets and of course lots and lots and lots of chocolate bunnies!
Be sure to "hop on over " soon to see the shop redecorated in its Easter finery.
I am sure you will leave with many goodies to fill your Easter baskets!
And stay tuned to my blog to hear more about all of our delicious homemade eggs!
Tom Brady, Wow!
February 10th, 2021
Whether you love to love him or you love to dislike him, you have to admire him. 43 years old and still a (7 time) Super Bowl-winning quarterback! It's like he is a superhero!
Tom Brady reminds me of my mom.
No, she doesn't play football. But she...Mildred... is 93 years old and still is very involved in the GROVE'S CANDY business. She has been for over 65 years!
Mildred works in the shop and helps make and package the homemade candy...wearing a mask, of course! (Before the pandemic, she could also be found at water aerobics or working out or at physical therapy, or...) The (secret) recipe for Grove's famous ultra-thin hand and homemade brittle came from mom's family. My dad used to joke "I only married your mother to get the brittle recipe!"
It was always Mildred's dream to have a candy shop, and that dream came true.
So the next time you come to Grove's Candies...at 1424 East Chocolate Ave... say "hi" to my mom. Talking to customers is her favorite part of the day!
And be sure to try one of our brittles...you have never tasted anything like it! They are ultra thin and ultra delicious.
Superbowl Sunday 2021!
February 7th, 2021
As I sit here looking at the snow...and (I am so sorry) not getting ready for the Super Bowl... I am reminded of the incredible service of so many during these times:
First responders, doctors, nurses, medical personnel who put their lives and their families' at risk to take care of others.
Teachers who have found new and innovative ways to keep our students learning.
Delivery folks have kept everything coming. Retail workers have continued to stock shelves...and clean, clean, clean.
I could go on. So many people are rising to the occasion of this pandemic.
I believe there is more good than bad out there...we just don't hear about the good like we should!
GROVE'S encourages you to use this Valentine season to say "THANK YOU!", (not just "I love you") to someone in your life who has given so much.
Something sweet is a great way to do that, especially for someone you don't know well. WHY? Because you don't have to know what they already have, their size, or the color or their home, or...!

Valenines Day 2021!
January 21st, 2021
ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE.
Let me remind you...You don't need to have a valentine..at least not one in the "traditional" sense...in order to observe Valentine's Day! We all have someone(s) in our life whom we love, adore, and/or appreciate. Make this holiday about celebrating them, not because some card company says you should, but because you don't tell special people how special they are nearly enough!
And of course nothing says "I love you" quite like candy does! Sweets for the sweet...and all that.
GROVE'S CANDIES has something for your every sweetheart...whether its chocolate-dipped long stemmed strawberries, homemade marshmallows hearts, chocolate marshmallow bombs, or red heart boxes full of our artisan gourmet chocolates. GROVE'S has been the "other candy company in Hershey" for over 60 years. Most of our candies are home and hand made and our shop is adorable...and OPEN for business! Please support us!
When the Beatles penned ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE, they didn't know that a pandemic was in our future. Now that we are in the midst of one, these words have never rung so true. We can get through this together...with love from above and love for each other.
So love on someone today...make a phone call, write a text or email, donate to a food bank, volunteer for an old age home, do something kind to a first-responder, patronize small businesses.
Most especially, tell someone you love them...and do it with something sweet ;)

Happy New Year 2021!
January 13th, 2021
It is with NO sadness that we say goodbye to 2020! I am sure everyone feels this way as it was a very difficult year!
So many people and businesses were hurt and GROVES CANDIES was no different. It was only in the last week that our wonderful and faithful customers supported our small business and took us from the RED and into the BLACK!
Thank you for your support and trust in GROVES CANDIES. Our hope is to see 2021 continue to grow and restore all things lost. We are working on new candies for you in 2021.
As each season brings us new challenges, be reminded what we came through together and hope for brighter days. I know we will help make them much sweeter for everyone!
Happy New Year!!
