Old-fashioned candy has returned to the new Kalona Creamery Shop & Deli! Time has really flown by since we opened our doors in mid-January this year! We would like to say thank you to the thousands of customers who have stopped in to visit, see the updated space, and support our local Kalona Creamery Shop & Deli!
Like all new store openings, we knew that Kalona Creamery Shop & Deli would evolve over time. By this we mean that we knew we would continue to add new items into the store, tweak our offerings, begin offering events, and more. And that is exactly what we are doing!
The legacy customers of Twin County Dairy definitely had some favorites from the old store. We have listened to those customers and are slowly adding in new (or old, depending on how you look at it) items to our Kalona Creamery Shop & Deli product selections.
Our newest addition is a unique selection of old-fashioned candies. You will not find Snickers or Twix candy bars in our candy selection but you will find candy cigarettes, Slo-Pokes, and even chocolate covered scorpions!
The candy selection is important to us because it honors one of big attractions from the past. Our customers are important to us and we want–with their help–to make Kalona Creamery Shop & Deli a long-term tourist destination in the Kalona, Iowa area.
Our store employees have also enjoyed watching the children “ooh” and “aah” over the candy selection too! One customer even dared one of our employees to try the chocolate covered scorpion–and of course, he did! That’s the kind of employees we have–they are always willing to go the extra mile for the customer and the company.
So, if you haven’t been to visit in the last few weeks, you may want to come back soon and check out our new candy selection. And stay tuned, we have more exciting things coming soon–including a Cinco de Mayo taco bar this Friday!
