Every year, Baltimore Magazine rounds up a list of the best in local entertainment in celebration of the city’s quirky yet beloved businesses, ranging in genre from food and fun to services and shops, news and art. Taking the cake (or should we say, “candy?”) in the confectionary category was Wockenfuss Candy itself.
The magazine, which has been commemorating and covering events and news in the city for over a century since 1907, is dedicated to documenting the annual “Best of” so Baltimeoreans can get their fix of the finest the city has to offer. The list says of Wockenfuss, “It’s hard not to be a kid again when you go into one of Wockenfuss’s eight retail shops,” remarking on the wonder our brimming cases of candy inspire. From chocolate truffles to elastic taffy, Wockenfuss carries all the candy classics to satisfy your childlike palette for sweets. They go on to write, “The company uses traditional recipes, which is fine with us. It doesn’t get better than a hunk of peanut-butter-and-chocolate fudge or a couple of coconut clusters.”
We agree: we’ve set out to preserve the recipes Wockenfuss founder Charles Herman Wockenfuss developed because they’ve been tweaked to perfection – and some things just can’t be improved upon. As one of the oldest candymakers in the city, we’ve had nearly 100 years of experience doing what we do best – making sweets and serving them up to local dessert devotees.
We’re proud to be a part of Baltimore’s best – come out to any one of our eight locations and see why we made the list, hon!
