Alice’s Kandy & Korn

In 1951 Alice Jones opened the first candy shop in Mackinaw City beginning a long tradition of excellence in candy making. For years, customers have traveled from throughout the Midwest for Alice’s delicious carmel corn and mouthwatering candies. In 1979, Chuck and Ginny Brew purchased the candy shop from Alice, and in 1983 doubled the shop.

Until her death in January, 1985, Alice was here daily… making sure our candies were every bit as delicious as they were in 1951. In honor of Alice, Chuck and Ginny renamed the shop “Alice’s Kandy & Korn” and pledged to continue Alice’s tradition of creating the finest of confectionary treats.

In 1989, after 38 years in one location, Alice’s moved to a larger building adjacent to the old facility. The move allowed us to expand our product lines and gave us more flexibility. We have been able to add candies and expand our chocolate line.

We invite you to visit us while you’re in Mackinaw City. Watch our candies being made and breathe in the intoxicating aromas. Enjoy our products here and ship some home to friends and family. We’re proud of our tradition of quality and service and look forward to sharing it with you.

Joann’s Fudge

Joan and Frank Nephew opened the first Joann’s Fudge Store on Mackinac Island in 1969 in a building located next to the old McNally Cottage. One year later, a second Joann’s Fudge Store was opened in a historic building in the center of Mackinac Island’s downtown and in 1980 a third location was added in Mackinaw City.

Today, Joann’s Fudge is a third generation family business that continues Joan and Frank’s commitment to providing high quality products. We pride ourselves on the smooth and creamy texture of our fudge. To obtain our world famous taste, our fudge is slowly cooked in traditional copper kettles over a gas flame. Once the desired temperature is reached, the mixture is poured onto marble slabs for a cooling period and then hand paddled into loaves. We only use fresh heavy cream and butter in every batch of fudge and pure ground cocoa beans in all our chocolate flavors. Joann’s Fudge does not contain any preservatives or powdered ingredients.
