Miesse Candies was founded in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania in 1875. For more than 140 years, we have been dedicated to providing fresh, quality chocolates to our customers. We use all natural ingredients, such as pure vanilla, real butter, and fresh cream, with no added preservatives. Our rich chocolate is made with real cocoa butter unlike other confectionary-based chocolates. All of our fruits and nuts are hand-dipped the old-fashioned way. At Miesse Candies, we are committed to manufacturing excellence in order to provide you with fresh, delicious chocolates every time.
Ice Cream Parlor
We proudly serve Pine View Dairy Ice Cream
The ice cream shop at the renamed Miesse Candies & Ice Cream Parlor was originally used at Shultz Pharmacy in York and had more recently been on display at Wolfgang Candy in York.
The 12-foot soda fountain has been refurbished to operate as it would have originally. It features sodas made with 10 different syrups, milk shakes, egg creams and 8 flavors of hand-dipped ice cream from Pine View Dairy.
