Welcome to Shane Confectionery!
In 2010, when we purchased America's Oldest Candy Shop from third-generation candy maker Barry Shane, we knew it was a sweet deal. Eighteen months of elbow grease and a few gray hairs later, we stood proudly as Mayor Michael Nutter cut the ribbon for the grand re-opening.
Shane's has been a very special place to generations of Philadelphians, with buttercream eggs and almond toffee crunch remaining sacred staples at holiday tables. Under our tenure, we've expanded upon perennial favorites to include making old-fashioned clear toys, historical drinking chocolates and most recently bean-to-bars ground at the Shane Chocolate Works.
As our city and world changes dramatically before our eyes, we will keep Shane's both old-fashioned and relevant, offering fresh and thoughtfully made confections for generations to come.
You have our word.
