Named one of Green Bay's top specialty stores by 10Best, Beerntsen’s Candies has handcrafted succulent sweets from natural ingredients for four generations. Milk and butter from Wisconsin farms add richness to indulgent chocolate and rich caramels, and Old World techniques turn tasty treats into edible time capsules as they hark back to the candies Henry Beerntsen first crafted in 1925. Six kinds of brittle, from coconut to cashew, tickle tongues while adding a satisfying crunchiness to mouth-percussion solos, and cherries and nuts nestle inside layers of milk and dark chocolate. Minty whipped chocolate fills the center of the dark-chocolate mint meltaways, and vanilla caramel clings to salty cashews or pecans in Beerntsen’s turtles, available in milk chocolate and dark chocolate. Beerntsen's also stocks whole-bean fresh coffee, gifts, and Old World souvenirs, helping to fill the void left by not having a nougaty center.
