Images: Abbot’s Candy Shop in Hagerstown

By Jessicanunemaker @JessNunemaker

Caramels, chocolates, and sweet treats galore fill the glass cases and shelves at Abbott's Candy Shop in Hagerstown, Indiana. I love the origin of this chocolate shop. Long ago, a traveling salesman for a candy company decided to leave the road and open his own restaurant. But he started tinkering with making candy and homemade ice cream out of his garage. After his side businesses began to take off, he closed his popular restaurant to concentrate more fully on one of his side businesses. But which one should it be? Fortunately, William Abbott chose candy.

He obviously made the right choice! For more than a hundred years his descendants have handled the day to day of the business up until the last few years when it changed hands. But you can still catch the same great flavors you know, love, and remember! In fact, it was even in the same location until the big move in 1985. For the last thirty years, it has occupied the old Presbyterian church. Time your visit during production hours and you can watch the chocolate confections being made through the large archway located at one end of the shop! Make a stop by the glass counter and pick up one of the amazing caramels!
