There’s a fun, new candy shop in town that you should definitely include in your plans during your visit to Northern Comfort. 

Ely’s Old Fashioned Candy is a new addition to the main drag in downtown Ely. Just steps away from one of our favorite restaurants, The Ely Steakhouse.

I have to say, I’d be super excited for a new candy shop in town, because, candy. But Ely’s Old Fashioned Candy has a bit extra fun going on…. candy + history! Visitors will see lovely, large copies of photos of Ely’s main street, Sheridan, lined up along the wall.

Visitors will see lovely, large copies of photos of Ely’s main street, Sheridan, lined up along the walls. Closer inspection shows that the images are from specific eras, with the years listed under the photo. Here’s the 1910 and 1920’s bays. 

So here’s the fun part… all the candy UNDER each image is candy that would have been available in that decade. Curious about which sweet treats a 1920’s Iron Ranger might have been munching on? Head to the 1920’s bay!

Seriously. How much better could this possibly be? For any of you who’ve watched a Ken Burns documentary wishing for snacks, Ely’s Old Fashioned Candy has your ticket.  Ours too.  Candy history aside, the shop also has plenty of fun for general snacking. There’s a case of truffles and the like, caramel corn, cotton candy in tons of flavors and a mouthwatering line-up of chocolate coated potato chips.  If you
