I’ll never forget the first time our family walked into the Martinsville Candy Kitchen. The candy canes were being made in the rear of the store behind a glass wall and it was very clear that the peppermint flavoring had just been added to the batch. Immediately my nose was clear and the sweet smell of Christmas hit my brain with such a rush!
My daughter was just such a joy to watch as she took in every smell, every visual of the process of candy making. She was so young so it didn’t amuse her the same way that it did my husband and me. The refreshing taste of a very fresh, very warm candy cane, made right before our eyes had hints of Christmas memories to come.
Please, please, please take your kids to the Martinsville Candy Kitchen THIS year! Do not miss THIS year!
Call ahead to see when the candy will be poured and when the best time is to come in.
I made the mistake of not calling ahead to double check when their “pour times” were for the week night that we visited. The store hours vary by day and are posted on the Candy Kitchen Facebook page but the times that candy canes are made “live” vary, so please call ahead!765.342.6390
