A Trip To Minnesota's Largest Candy Store

For our 6 year anniversary, we made a trip out to Minnesota's Largest Candy Store to celebrate as one of the traditional gifts for the 6th anniversary is candy/sugar. Despite having lived in Minnesota for 8 years, we have never been, so this was also our first trip, but it won't be our last!

Minnesota's Larget Candy Store is located in Jordan, MN and is seasonal, so it's only open Mid-May through November. You can find out exactly when they are open and their hours on their Facebook page, which is there only source of information. An important thing to note is that they only accept cash or checks, but there is an ATM on site. There are also bathrooms located at the front, near the checkout.

We chose to go on our anniversary, which was on a Saturday. We went in the morning thinking it would be so bad, but it was packed! I definitely recommend going on a weekday if you can! We had no idea it was that popular, but I guess when you have almost every type of candy you can imagine, you become a pretty popular store!

Besides the classic Hersheys and Reeses, there were all sorts of European and Japanese candy. We left with 6 little tubs of differently flavored taffy, ones I haven't ever even heard of like strawberry cheesecake, pumpkin pie, and carrot cake! They had classic flavors, like vanilla and blue raspberry, available too.

While candy is the main attraction, it's not the only thing Minnesota's Largest Candy Store sells. They also have the largest soda collection, over 1,000 different types, including the hard to find Japanese soda, Ramune! They have tons of puzzles, chips, and various other goodies as well. You can also find pumpkins, syrup, honey, and freshly baked apple pies. Everything you need for fall!

Prices are a little on the high side. I would skip on things you can get at Target, like pocky and American candy, and focus on the things harder to find, like the Kinder, Milka, and Japanese candies. Their taffy is reasonably priced at just under $2 for a little tub, but I would still focus on the flavors you can't find anywhere else.

Their pumpkins, however, are a steal at just under $5 and the cheapest we've seen so far, at least in our area. Totally recommend planning your trip around October for that reason so you can get candy and pumpkins for Halloween!

The building itself is worth seeing. The ceilings are beautifully decorated and you'll spy some of your favorite superheroes and other famous TV icons, like the Tardis from Doctor Who!

Our daughter was only 1, but she had fun looking around and was upset when we left, so I think it's great for all ages! There's so much to see!
