Little Foodies: Doscher’s Candy Co

Build the best Easter basket for your kids at Doscher’s Candies! Located in Newtown, the historic yellow candy house is home to the famous chewy French Chews and hand-striped candy canes. For 150 years, Doscher’s affectionately creates their candy confections by hand with the same copper kettles, small batches and time-tested techniques.

Doscher’s is the oldest continuously operating candy company in the United States and has introduced new candies to their menu over the years, including candy buttons, soft Bequet caramels, handcrafted pillow candies, peppermint pieces and mini chews. In January, Doscher’s new coffee house opened steps away from the retail candy shop. Before filling Easter baskets, sip on a creamy latte, cappuccino, macchiato, tea, smoothie or mocha. 

Proudly showing off their delicious French Chews, step inside the retail shop and immediately grab a Fiona watermelon Chew, Chew-Dey orange Bar, vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, banana or candy cane crunch chew. Perfectly placed, children can choose from a variety of candy button themes and flavors like sour and paperless — bagged buttons without the paper backing. For buttery caramel lovers, Bequet caramels come in classic, salt-chocolate and celtic sea salt.

The retail gift shop is also home to a large variety of local market items for children and adults like puzzles, mugs, jewelry, toys, books, shirts, stuffed animals and Doscher’s candy scented candles. Looking for a Cincinnati-specific gift? Doscher’s offers two books: Findlay Market History and Cincinnati Candy as well as Ohio tea towels and the blue Doscher Bus t-shirts. Curated bunny bags and carrot variety packs are perfect for quick grab-and-go treats. 

Doscher’s Candy Co is located at 6926 Main St., Cincinnati
