Dear Miss South Dakota Pageant Supporter,
I struggle to find adequate superlatives to describe my enjoyment of the truffles I received as a Miss South Dakota Pageant Judge. Awesome Delicious, Intoxicating, and Perfect are a few that come to mind. There truly is no dilemma that cannot be solved by the sharing of fine chocolate and yours is definitely all that. Thank you again and again.
I absolutely LOVED this store, from the rustic feeling about it, to the old fashioned, and newer delicious candies including truffles, chocolates and licorice, to the candy train. The employees were friendly and helpful, and greeted me as soon as I walked through the door, made excellent suggestions, and were great company. Overall AMAZING experience. I hope to come back every year!
This little candy shop is an adorable small business run by good folks with a great selection of premium home made candies (and coffee...and ice cream...). I picked up a few pieces of their salted caramels and divinity (which I never find in stores and instantly put me in a sugar-induced coma of goodness). We also brought home pumpkin butter from one of the local farmers selling their canned goodies there.
Although many places in Custer, being primarily a tourist town on the way to the state park or Rushmore, close down for the winter, the Custer County Candy Co. stays open all year. If you're in the area DON'T miss it.
In search of Chocolate Perfection, we visited Custer County Candy Company in Custer, SD. The location is good, and the confectionary worth the visit. Most chocolates are hand-made on the premises by very a experienced chocolatier, Lee Lampert, dedicated to visitors enjoying delicious treats. We had friends over for supper and served a variety of Custer County Candy Co. chocolates. The truffles went over so well, we have friends for life. Said one guest, "This is the best thing I have ever put in my mouth." Amen, sister!
