Grandpa Joe's Candy Company was created to honor my father’s family tradition of making carnival confections back in the 30's, 40's and 50's.

Our Carnival Style Caramel Corn is a delicate balance of crisp popcorn and seductive homemade caramel made using an original family recipe that is over 75 years old.

Our Cotton Candy Floss is made in the traditional way but with organic sugar and natural and artificial flavoring and coloring ingredients. We still use the time honored techniques passed down through the generations recreating the nostalgic childhood memories we all have come to enjoy from this wonderful fluffy treat.

We hope you enjoy all of our time-honored products over and over again and share them with all of your friends and family.  Thank you very much for your business.

Thank You for Your Business!!
