Ole Smoky Candy Kitchen

Gatlinburg Candy KitchenRight next door to Pancake Pantry and the entrance of The Village Shops is one of the sweetest spots in Gatlinburg. This home of the original Smoky Mountain Saltwater Taffy Logs makes tasty treats 7 days a week that can cure even the pickiest sweet tooth.

Ole Smoky Candy Kitchen was founded in 1950 and has been a Gatlinburg favorite ever since.  You’ll still find candy makers wearing white uniforms, stirring big copper kettles of sugary goodness, and stretching salt water taffy just like they always have.  And, you can still purchase your handmade candies by the piece or by the box.

Unless you already have the sweet you want in mind when you enter the candy store, you may have a hard time deciding just what to try!  Here are just a few of the items you’ll find:

  • Salt Water Taffy
    Over 24 flavors including peanut butter, chocolate, vanilla, rum, wintergreen, clove, key lime, sassafras and even Moonshine!
  • Rich, Creamy Fudge
    Vanilla, chocolate, peanut butter, white chocolate, turtle, caramel, etc.
  • Almond and Pecan Barks
  • Hand-Dipped Cordial Cherries
    Choice of white, dark, and milk chocolate
  • Chocolate Covered Nuts
  • Chocolate Covered Fruit
  • Truffles, Creams
  • and Sugarfree candy too!

Handmade Sugary GoodnessIn addition to homemade candy, you can also shop for private label jellies, local sourwood and wildflower honey, souvenir toys and candy tins, and some manufacturer’s candy favorites.

Pick up a box or two of chocolate treats and head back to your own suite at Mountain House Motor Inn.  Course, we are only a couple minutes walk away so you can head over to Ole Smoky Candy Kitchen most any time your sweet tooth demands between 8 a.m. – 11 p.m.
