Andrews Candies is OPEN and has wonderful, wonderful, wonderful candy brittle. Technically called gourmet nut brittle, unofficially I would call it heaven.
I had a great time visiting their store today. Traffic was backed up on the highway, so I pulled into one of WP’s newest businesses, Andrews Candies. They just opened a week ago, so the shelves aren’t quite fully stocked.
Make no mistake, these folks know how to make candy the right way. This stuff tastes like pure heaven!
Being a Southern transplant myself, I was tickled to learn that the owners, Charmee and Gary Andrews, moved here recently from Arkansas. Just like so many of us transplants, they have always wanted to live up here in the mountains. This past winter, they took the plunge. They built a home in Divide; and moved their established candy business to Colorado.
Let’s give a great big warm welcome to Andrews Candies!
Andrews has been making gourmet brittle since 1955. It is a true family business. You can read the family history of their candy making business on their website.
Although the majority of their business is mail order, Woodland Park residents are now lucky enough to be able to buy FRESH brittle straight from the store on Highway 24. I hope the Andrews Candies Store becomes a regular stop for people as they drive up from The Springs into the mountains every weekend.
Teller County is proud to have a company such as Andrews relocate here. This little blogger from WoodlandParkLOCAL wants to welcome them with open arms! I was so excited about the yummy candy today when I stopped in there that I forgot to take any pictures of the exterior. Duh! I will do that ASAP next time I drive past.
