Candy for the Whole Family at Aunt Charlotte's Candies
A South Jersey candy shop is celebrating a century of sweetness. The fourth-generation family-owned shop started in 1920 with the present-day owner’s grandfather making caramels out of his basement and selling them from a wagon and then a Model T Ford. He’d drive around town selling the individually wrapped caramels for a penny apiece. Aunt Charlotte’s Candies is now in a former feed store on N. Maple Avenue in Maple Shade. It’s run by the founder’s granddaughters and great-grandson and it still stays true to that original caramel recipe. The candy makers believe the chocolate is a key to longevity and they all eat dozens of pieces a day.
