We stumbled on Nancy's Candy Company while traveling the Blue Ridge Parkway in September. SWAC Husband picked up a small package of cinnamon candy at Explore Park outside Roanoke and discovered it had been made in Virginia at Meadows of Dan. We were heading south on the Parkway so decided to look it up.
Within a mile of the Parkway at Meadows of Dan, there it was -- Nancy's Candy Company -- all decorated for Halloween.
It all started with this little package of cinnamon candies.
Nancy's makes some candies and packages some bulk products. Their selection of fall and Halloween candies was impressive.
There was an even wider selection of homemade candies that are crafted on-site in the candy kitchen.
From Nancy's website:
In the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains is a small mountain community where pride in accomplishment is still important. This is the home of my Candy Factory. With the help of caring neighbors, we make the greatest tasting fudge, chocolates and truffles.If you're near Meadows of Dan or Mabry Mill or that part of Virginia, stop by and visit with the folks at Nancy's.
Using the finest chocolate, fresh cream and butter and a little extra patience, I developed my original recipe for creamy fudge, decadent truffles, homestyle chocolates and lots more. Folks say our candy is the best they’ve ever had.
Come visit us and shop our three candy stores – you’ve never seen so many luscious chocolates, mouth- watering fudges, artisan truffles and handmade candies. And at factory prices!
