About Us

Goodies Handmade Candies is a small family-run business. We are located in the Iowa Great Lakes Region of Northwest Iowa.

Goodies has become a "must stop" place when visiting the area. Our offerings include handmade candies, ice cream, coffee, and gifts.

Our goals have always been to provide great tasting treats and taking care of each customer.

Our recipes have evolved over time, but are always made with "butter and love".

Each batch uses fresh quality ingredients and no added preservatives.

Customers from all over tell us, "Goodies makes the best candies they have ever had."

Since 1985, many of you have been shopping with us, letting each family member pick their favorite treat.

Now we're seeing your children and grandchildren carrying on this Goodies tradition.
