MINNESOTA’S LARGEST CANDY STORE | Where to go when your tour group REALLY needs a sweet!

Minnesota’s Largest Candy Store – one of Minnesota’s most unique attractions – is located along Highway 169 in Jordan. Visit this seasonal destination, open mid-May through November, for hard-to-find sweets and fresh baked goods, the world’s largest selection of sodas, plus a huge variety of popcorn, pastas, meats and other products raised or made locally. This unique and nostalgic place is the perfect “sweetspot” for your tour group!

ACROSS THE HIGHWAY FROM JIM’S Apple Farm in southern Minnesota’s Scott County is a sprawling bright yellow retail store. The golden dome at one end can be seen from miles up the road like a sunrise on the horizon.

This seasonal, family-owned business has been operating here nearly 40 years. From mid-May to November, visitors can find local, regional, and imported sweets and treats of all kinds: candied fruits, chocolate bars, fresh baked goods, frozen items, gummies, jelly beans, sodas of every flavor (including Moxie, Cheerwine, and Faygo’s Rock N’ Rye), and even a few toys.

While you shop, you can also admire the ceilings painted in a wild, whimsical dreamscape of food and pop culture impressions. Don’t forget to read the oversized billboard on the way out of the gravel parking lot: It’s usually posted with some quippy pun or sarcastic reflection on the times.

Know Before You Go
Note that the store is closed in the winter. It is open mid-May through November and accepts cash and checks only. There are several ATMS available for use in the store. It’s located off US Hwy 169.
