CandyStrike began right here on Main St. in 1996 as a quaint 700 sq ft store. Back then we carried mostly taffy and a mix of candles. Humm? What a combination! During the second ownership, we began to eliminate candles. Listening to our customers, expanding on our knowledge on nostalgic candies our product began to change and so did the face of the store. In 2003 we moved to a larger location of course staying on our “Old Hangtown” Main St. It was at this location we began making our own fudge. Starting with just a few old favorites then expanding into what we now have over 300 different recipes we have created and continuously rotate throughout the year. Our Signature fudge of course being Hangtown Justice (a jalapeno pistachio) a little sweet, a little spice and a lot nutty.
Our wonderful and loyal customers keep coming back and increase which WOW caused us to move yet again into a 5200 sq. ft. store front right in the heart of downtown. Goes without saying but we’re gonna say it anyway our customers are SWEEEET!!!
We now have some new and fanatically crazy for chocolate owners, Ryan and Dawn Cappell are third generation chocolatiers. Loving the peaceful and small town feeling of Placerville, they not only bought the business but have recently relocated to the foothills from the Modesto area. Ryan makes and creates some outstanding chocolates and custom makes, what is becoming a very highly demanded wine and beer infused truffles. We encourage you to come in and meet the exciting new owners and of course while you are here … you will NOT be able to leave the store without tasting some of our awesome and endless creations.
We look forward to sharing some ‘SWEET’ moments with you soon!
