Gardners Candies Candy #Valentine's Day Gift Guide Review!

Free For All received a sample to facilitate this review  all opinions are 100 percent my own no financial compensation was received.


Gardners Candies creates the standard for other chocolate companies in my book! Gardners Candies was founded in 1897 by a sixteen-year-old boy named James "Pike" Gardner in Tyrone, Pennsylvania. The young entrepreneur operated out of a small store in downtown Tyrone. He  transported his popcorn, candy, chocolate and other treats to sell in a horse drawn wagon.
Gardners Candies grew over the years by expanding its products line and building a reputation for amazing chocolates. Today, Gardners Candies has ten retail stores in Pennsylvania. Gardners Candies Stores are beautifully decorated and you can feel the love that goes into their products in their stores!

Gardners creates candy-filled trays, baskets and collector tins decorated and wrapped for elegant presentation. As a special service to their customers, they mail anywhere, and gift-wrapping is free.Gardners is famous for their Original Peanut Butter Meltaway, a creamy, smooth peanut butter dipped in rich milk chocolate. Many have tried, but none can duplicate the Gardners family recipe.  Let me tell you they are simply decadent. Gardners Candies is 120 years old this year and credits its success to a philosophy of giving customers rich quality products and great service, while striving to make the best even better.


We tried the Peanut Butter Meltaway Egg and every bite was delicious! The peanut butter center was so smooth and creamy. The chocolate on the outside was thick but not too thick. It was just enough that it tasted amazing together with the peanut butter. My daughter loved the decorative flower on the top. I peeled it off for her and she packed it with her until finally eating it! The egg is so big you could never eat it in one sitting. We sliced away pieces for a week. Gardner's Meltaway Eggs come in three sizes; 1 pound, 2 pound and 3 pound. They also come with several delicious centers like Caramel Pecan, Fudge Nut, Coconut and many more! You are sure to find the center you'll love!


Who doesn't love getting chocolates for Valentine's Day? I know I do! Gardner's makes the perfect Valentine's Day Gift for a special someone in your life! I also really like the Gardners Candy Custom Box. With the custom box you can choose your own cholates, caramels, meltaways, nuts, creams, milk truffles, clusters and more. You can also choose a heart or custom box. This way you can show the one you care that you know just what they like.


As a mom I love the Gardners Candies Fundraising opportunities. You can find out more here  by watching the video below. My kids are in sports so we are constantly fundraising. Chocolates are an easy sale. Gardners Candies are such fine quality that they honestly will sell themselves!



I really want to check out the Gardners Ice Cream Parlor, Candy Store and Candy Museum at the Tyrone location. It has become a destination stop for friends, family and tour buses that visit Tyrone or live in the surrounding area. The address is 30 W. 10th St.,Tyrone, Pa 16686. It is a place the whole family would enjoy!

This Valentine's Day give your sweetheart Gardners Candies; they will adore you for it! Make sure to purchase from Gardners Candies, check out the fundraisers and follow them on social media below:

  2. As a Tyrone native who moved to Massachusetts, I can say one of the things I miss most is Gardners Candies. The peanut butter meltaways are to die for and the shop has an awesome penny candy counter for the little ones (and the big ones!)
