Alice's Kandy and Korn, Mackinaw City

#5 of 6 in Shopping in Mackinaw City
Gift & Specialty Shop · Hidden Gem · Shopping
In 1951 Alice Jones opened the first candy shop in Mackinaw City beginning a long tradition of excellence in candy making. For years, customers have traveled from throughout the Midwest for Alice’s delicious carmel corn and mouthwatering candies. In 1979, Chuck and Ginny Brew purchased the candy shop from Alice, and in 1983 doubled the shop.

Until her death in January, 1985, Alice was here daily making sure our candies were every bit as delicious as they were in 1951. In honor of Alice, Chuck and Ginny renamed the shop “Alice’s Kandy & Korn” and pledged to continue Alice’s tradition of creating the finest of confectionary treats.

In 1989, after 38 years in one location, Alice’s moved to a larger building adjacent to the old facility. The move allowed us to expand our product lines and gave us more flexibility. We have been able to add candies and expand our chocolate line.

We invite you to visit us while you’re in Mackinaw City. Watch our candies being made and breathe in the intoxicating aromas. Enjoy our products here and ship some home to friends and family. We’re proud of our tradition of quality and service and look forward to sharing it with you.

  • While living in northern Michigan we were in the store all the time. I moved away and was craving her popcorn. This was a few years back, it took 4 months to receive my order. Then it wasn't for to eat. I was told it was taken over by another family member. I sure hope it's changed these past years. Sorry to say I don't get back up Morth when we visit family. I hope that its being run they way it should be.
  • Little local family owned shop. Has some of the best fudge I've had. Mackinac is home to some great fudge places, but this is the most original to my knowledge. They sell chocolates, fudge, and vast amounts of candies. Look around the shop and I can guarantee you you'll find something that catches your eye.
