Candy Tour Open in West Palm Beach, Florida

Submitted by on April 8, 2019 – 8:42 amNo Comment

Bulk Candy Store Tours, West Palm Beach, FloridaThe Bulk Candy Store, 235 North Jog Road, West Palm Beach, Florida, South Florida’s largest and oldest retailer of sweets and treats, has opened Candy Tour — a permanent exhibit that explores the sweet history behind confections.

Candy Tour guides will take guests on a Willy Wonka-style journey, only tasting is encouraged on this excursion.

“We designed the tour with ourselves in mind,” said Bulk Candy Store co-owner Ken Shenkman. “We love candy. The Candy Tour allows us to share our love with the community and teach them about how candy makes life sweeter.”

Visitors will step back in time and visit ancient Egypt, where artisans created delicious desserts using honey. Tour guides will highlight the history of sugar, offer a sneak peek at how gummies are made, delve into the impact of robots on the candy biz and let guests taste test.

The Candy Tour has been years in the making for Shenkman and his partners, brother Brian and mom, Carole. The family launched the business in 1992, focusing their efforts on working big fairs and festivals across the U.S. while building a retail business on the side. Today, the company employs up to 20 people, runs a robust internet business and handles brisk traffic at its 17,500-square-foot retail store.

The Shenkmans researched, designed and built their own Wonka world. Brian Shenkman, the family’s resident artist, mapped out the tour, creating most of the displays by hand.

Tours can be booked online or by calling the store at 561-540-1600. Tickets are $12.95 for adults and $8.95 for kids. The 40 minute immersive tour starts and ends in the store, where you’ll have the opportunity to shop for candy and more than 50 flavors or gourmet popcorn with a special tour discount.

Bulk Candy Store is a family-owned and -operated candy and gourmet popcorn retailer. The company sells candy at major fairs and festivals throughout the United States via its website, and in its retail store in West Palm Beach.
