Shane’s Confectionary is the oldest continually operated candy store in America.

 

Shane Confectionery is seated in what was once the confectionery mecca of America. In the 18th and 19th century, Philadelphia hosted the most active port in the country. Cocoa, fruits, and spices were shipped up the Delaware River to sustain a flourishing confectionery scene. Sugarcane would be refined along the river and sold in shops along Market Street. Philadelphia soon became synonymous with this art form, so much so that candy makers in other cities would tote their goods as “Philadelphian” to imply quality. From Goldenberg and Wilbur to Hershey and Whitman, prominent names in American chocolate and candy all trace their first shops to the City of Brotherly Love.
