The Dan Smith Candy Company began as an ice cream company in 1946 on the porch of Dan Smith’s home in Brookville, PA. Seven years later, encouraged by the success of his ice cream business, Dan decided to expand into making candy. One of the first candies created? The coconut and peanut clusters that they still make today.
In 1984, Dan passed the business on to the next generation of his family. Under the family’s ownership, the factory and the factory store in Brookville continued to flourish. Stores were also opened in Clarion and Ridgway, PA, offering our quality chocolates and unique gift ideas.
After enjoying 60 years of success as a family-owned business, the company was purchased by Joe and Amy Scarnati in 2015. Shortly after acquiring the company, Joe and Amy opened a store in DuBois.
Currently, you can find Dan Smith Candy Company stores in Brookville, Clarion, Dubois, Ridgway, and Indiana, Pa.
Dan Smith Candy Company has many holiday, year around, and seasonal favorites. Some of our favorites include:
- Dark Chocolate Peppermint Patties
- Customer Favorites Gift Basket
- Peanut Butter Candy Bars
- Confection Covered Popcorn
Dan Smith Candy Company offers online ordering and shipping. But, shipping is only done during the months of October-April. They don’t add parrafin to keep the chocolate from melting, so cool weather and quick shipping are required for fresh product.
