I have been exploring all the great places along Old Route 8 (also known as Akron-Cleveland Rd) in Ohio. Today I’m in the Peninsula/Cuyahoga Falls area at one of Ohio’s little gems the Grabham’s Candies & Chocolates.
This is a family owned fourth generation chocolate and candy store. I stopped in to see (and smell) all the wonderful handmade goodies available. Christine was on hand to share with me the history not only of the store but the neighborhood as well. Her family has been a large part of this ever–changing neighborhood for many years.
Christine showed me the different chocolates they are working for the upcoming seasons. They have a wide variety to choose from, there is sure to be something for everyone’s taste from mint chocolates, truffles, toffee and chocolate turkeys (in season). The quality is excellent and it tells you why they have stood the test of time.
Of course I couldn’t leave without trying a little chocolate and getting some for the road. So if you are in the area stop by and have a chat and some of the best candy and chocolate you’ll ever taste. For more info on hours & directions visit: http://grabhamscandies.com
