David Jones is owner along with wife Janet of Hansel and Gretel Candy Kitchen and the author of "Candy Making for Dummies" as well as a past President of

RCI (Retail Confectioners International Association) from June 2009 - June 2010.

Hansel & Gretel Candy Kitchen started in 1973 as a tiny shop in an alley in Helen, Georgia. The owners were a young couple, David and Janet Jones, who were full of enthusiasm, but had no idea how to make candy. Slowly and steadily over the years, the couple and their ever-growing staff learned how to make different candies, and Hansel & Gretel now produces the widest assortment of candies of any Georgia retailer. Whether you are looking for such Southern traditions as peanut brittle, divinity, fudge or pralines, there is simply no one who does it better. Hansel & Gretel also specializes in a vast assortment of chocolate molded novelties and chocolate suckers, and offers a wide selection of chocolate gift boxes and other assortments. During a visit to the large Hansel & Gretel Candy Kitchen in downtown Helen, you will see these and many more items too numerous to list, made right before your eyes. David and Janet still run the company, and their son in law & daughter - Mike & Diana Reis are now involved with the online website & social media. David loves to answer your questions about our products and enjoys handshaking in general. If you are in town, drop by or call anytime. Hansel & Gretel Candy Kitchen is open every day but Christmas.

  • Our tour guide was adorable. She's extremely knowledgeable and fun. Plus free chocolate! It's a cute little shop in a cute little town
  • If you have a sweet tooth, I'm pretty sure you can find something you'll like here. They have pretty much anything you can think of dipped in chocolate. Not to mention a wall of different flavored Jelly Bellies. Their homemade peanut brittle is really good and I don't even care for peanut brittle. The staff is nice and helpful. They always have free samples of some kind of fudge sitting out. The only thing I didn't like was that we were hoping to see the Chocolate Factory actually working but we went twice and they were never making anything.
