About

Every day, an antique glass stove heats copper kettles full of the creams, caramels, and other decadent sweets that Anderson’s candy makers stuff inside the shop's most popular confections. Since its founding in 1919, Anderson's has crafted small batches of candies such as its signature chocolates, which feature high-quality ingredients including raw cane sugar, grade-AA Wisconsin butter, Shirley Temple’s tears, and pure Madagascar-bourbon vanilla extract. First devised by founder Arthur Anderson, this top-secret chocolate recipe has been handed down through multiple generations and to this day has only undergone slight modifications to improve its texture, flavor, and taste in music.
