With every season there is always the question, “what can I get for his birthday, anniversary, confirmation and even Christmas.”  Well, we are making new and different candy creations for your special people. Things that will make you feel special when you give it knowing its an a original candy by Grove’s family.

The Holiday Season

Oct 28th, 2016

 

I​t's Fall, a time when ​most people smell leaves​ and cider and a crispness in the air​.  Me?  I smell fresh chocolate and homemade peanut brittle​!!​ ​Yes for candy makers, ​it's time for ​delicious treats...​like apples and fudge and ​brittle...​all ​of ​the ​goodies that make the holiday season festive and ​special.

 

​Stop in at Grove's ​C​andies​​​... the shop on East Chocolate Avenue...​ or order online​,​ and get yourself some fresh​, ​delicious confectionery treats that are homemade​...​ with a lot of love​!​​
 
The holidays are creeping up fast so treat yourself first before you treat others.​ :)​

Our Style of Service

May 12, 2016
 

I was working in our shop today and realized something I felt compelled to blog about. It is about a style of service that is quickly disappearing… one that you will ALWAYS receive at Grove’s!

 

Our mother, who is 86, still works in the shop, waiting on customers and sharing our family history. She so enjoys meeting and greeting our customers and explaining about our candy choices while also asking all about them, such as where they are from, what their families are like ... etc.

 

Today she had a doctor’s appointment and had to miss working in the shop.  She expressed to me that she would miss all her “friends”, and I assured her I would send her regards!

 

I was astounded at how many folks asked me “where Mrs. Grove is today?” and commented on how much they missed her and her friendly style of service. They shared how my mother would help them find a certain candy they were looking for, or they just shared with me about their family and friends.

 

I was so deeply touched!!! She has demonstrated this kind of service since she started our business in 1956…60 years of wonderful relationships! Customers are friends and family and they matter to her…and to all of us! Thank you, mother, for all you do and have done!!!

 

And we hope you will come to the shop to celebrate our 60th Birthday!!

 

The Smells Of Easter

Mar 1, 2016

 

I just love the holidays for all the special things that take place with family, food, festivities and traditions!  Making our 2 foot hollow chocolate bunnies is one of those traditions for me!  Big bunnies standing so tall , (with a basket on their backs filled with eggs,)  bring back so many cherished memories from my childhood.

 

Yes, Easter candy has a certain aroma that fills our shop and only comes this time of year! Many familiar faces don our shop as they pick up their Easter treats to fill the baskets of their cherished loved ones and special friends!

 

So,  know that Easter is special for our family which includes making  the candy for your family to enjoy!!!! Happy Easter!!!!!

CANDY TIMES ARE A CHANGING!

May 8, 2015

 

As I visit other confectioners and read the candy periodicals, I am seeing that the desires of candy lovers are changing. They are looking for more customized and personal candy products. Homemade and gourmet is also very appealing to candy consumers today.

 

This observation didn't scare me, because I realized that is what Grove's Candies, Inc., has been doing for over 50 years. Just making candy better! Making candy the way our family would want  to enjoy it or even give it. We even personalize the packaging or chocolate right on the choclate piece to our guests specifications!

 

Though times might be changing for candy, we have stayed the same, since our beginning in 1956!

Children and Candy!

May 8, 2015

 

I guess it would be an understatement to say that children and candy go together like peanut butter and jelly! But, there isn't a day that goes by where I don't see a sweet child come in our shop and in a minute they are holding a delicious piece of Groves gourmet candies in their chubby little hands. And then, the chocolate mouth and fingers follow. Carter is sitting down waiting for Mom to bring him candy! He is so cute!

MY FIRST CANDY BLOG!

May 8, 2015

 

My first blog!

 

By birth I come from  long line of candy makers! My maternal grandmother started working for a German candymaker in the early 1900's. Her daughter, my mother, continued making candy through the mid 1950's and now I am contiung the sweet tradition into the next century.

 

While working in our candy shop serving candy to our loyal patrons this past busy week, I realized one of the many reasons why I enjoy making candy so much.  By looking at the face of every patron walking through our shop, I noticed that they were smiling! Candy makes people happy! Even unhappy folks became happy before leaving our shop, because  they tasted something wonderful or they saw a candy that reminded them of a happy time that they had earlier in their life!

 

It makes me so happy to know that my family candy business is bringing so much happiness to so many. We have done so for over 56. My grandmother would be so pleased!
