Seeing as I am a Philadelphia native, I tend to swell with hometown pride when we feature a company or shop from "my" city. Shane Confectionery is located at 110 Market Street in downtown Philadelphia, where they've been making candy and other sweet treats since 1863.
Shane Confectionery is the oldest continuously run candy shop in the United States. They sell only handmade sweets using traditional methods of production. If you're planning a trip to Philadelphia, the shop is whimsical and charming - definitely worth a visit.
Did you see the rabbits (above) in the April issue of Living? They are "clear toy candies" from Shane Confectionery and come in a range of really beautiful colors. These clear candies and other mouth-watering chocolates, caramels, hard candies, brandied fruits (!), and much more are available for purchase in the whimsical shop or online. Watch the video below for a behind the scenes look at this very special shop.
