Since 2005 North Country Candy and Gifts has been the go to source for fine handmade chocolates in northeast Michigan. What began as holiday treats for family and friends has been transformed into a business with a loyal and very satisfied following. Top quality ingredients, attention to detail and an overwhelming desire to offer our customers the best product possible are the reasons we are confident you will be pleased with your purchase.
North Country Candy & Gifts provides our customers the opportunity to buy and enjoy what is quite possibly the world’s best caramel corn. Only the owners of the business know the secrets of this old family recipe. This wonderful treat is made from scratch in small batches using only the best quality ingredients. No short cuts are ever taken so the caramel corn turns out like your favorite homemade cookies; slight variations in color or texture but consistent quality and taste. Many customers have commented that the caramel corn sold at North Country Candy & Gifts is the best they have ever tasted. While there is no accounting for taste, there is also no arguing that so many people could possibly be wrong; judge for yourself.
Since opening in June 2005 our store has expanded the products we offer as well as the floor space available to display our wide variety of sweets and gifts. The most significant enhancement has been the purchase and relocation to our store in Alpena of Hubbard Lake Coffee Roasters in December 2007. We currently offer ten single origin options, ten blend varieties and 32 flavor combinations of coffee alternatives. Suggestions for new offerings are always welcome. In the fall of 2014 we added a full service coffee and espresso bar to complement the expansive selection of premium chocolates, 32 flavors of Ashby’s ice cream and variety of Michigan made products.
We make every effort to carry a variety of each of our products in order to offer the largest selection possible for our customers. If you don't see that special "have to have" item in our store or on the website, please contact us and we will do our best make it available.
