Pennsylvania’s Oldest Candy Shop, Shane Confectionery, Has Been Around Since 1863 And It’s Not Hard To See Why

Love candy? How about chocolate? You’re in for a real (and delicious!) treat when you visit the oldest candy shop in Pennsylvania. Your visit, however, offers so much more than the opportunity to stock up on your favorite candy and chocolate. Try a scrumptious assortment of hot drinking chocolates; sip a milkshake; or join a tour (on select dates) of the confectionery.
