Three Stops for Candy Shops

Sugar Doll Chocolates

Candyman on Main — West Bend

Located in downtown West Bend, the Candyman on Main has been making and selling candy for the past 30 years. The clean, bright store is filled with an endless variety of colorful candies, from jelly beans and gummi bears to old-time favorites like candy buttons and candy sticks. The shop also carries a number of excellent chocolates, including some made in the shop.

For those looking for something other than candy, try the Candyman’s homemade cheesecorn or some Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream. And, if you’re looking for something without so much sugar, the shop has a wide variety of sugar-free chocolates and candy.

This shop is packed with fun things, from funny gifts and delightful stationery to handmade journals and jewelry. And, of course, the shop offers a variety of interesting candy. Sink your teeth into chocolate truffles. Indulge in delectable chocolates. Buy some old-time candy and try some of the animal-shaped truffles from the Moonstruck Chocolate Company.

Many items in Sugar Doll are made by local artists. Each item in the shop is interesting and expresses the owner’s wry sense of humor. It’s hard not to have fun in this eccentric little shop.


If you’re looking for something sweet to eat, you need to hightail it to one of Oshkosh’s two Oaks Candy Shops. Established in 1890, Oaks Candy Shops are truly old-fashioned, offering a mind-boggling variety of candy and all the delightful sights and smells you’d expect.

Meltaways, nut-rolled candies, soft centers, fudge, clusters and candy bars – you’ll find it all. There’s even a healthy supply of roasted nuts for you to enjoy. In addition to chocolate delights, you’ll find a colorful variety of specialty candies. These two shops are amazing.
