Shane Candies makes candy as it should be made - lovingly, with deep respect and affection for the craft of confectionery. You might even think of their chocolates as miniature works of art.  Shane is America's oldest candy shop since 1911. Now those are some big shoes to fill. Shane tries to bring back that olden-day candy shoppe vibe... The staff was very funny and entertaining in their 1920's garb, and the candy is all fresh, made in house with the original machinery and equipment. They make everything by hand the old fashioned way. This place is right next to The Franklin Fountain and they are both owned by the same bearded guys. They have thought of every detail to set their shops apart and they have become a real destination worth visiting. They said their most popular item is there creams. Round pieces of chocolate filled with different flavored sugary creme. These were very good. If you show them your Franklin Fountain receipt  you get a 10% discount so be sure to check out both when in Philly.
