The 5 Best Candy Stores in Banff!


After 64 years as a hotel in Banff, the staff at the Douglas Fir Resort has learnt a thing or two about what guests want. A trip to Banff (regardless of whether you’re travelling with kids) must include the all-important trip to the candy store!

For a small town, Banff boasts an impeccable array of sweet shops, fudgery’s and indulgent delights to send you back to your Banff hotel seriously stuffed. Here is our run-down of the best candy stores in Banff!

Sweet Shoppe – Step back in time at the Banff Sweet Shoppe as you gaze at the wondrous selection of candy that you had as a kid! Sample candy through the ages from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and 80’s, all stacked high on the rustic dark-wood shelves. Tip- Head towards the back of the shop to view the impressive Pez collection!

Welches Chocolate Shop – Visitors (and locals) have flocked to family owned Welches since 1965 and it’s easy to see why. With floor to ceiling shelf’s stacked with every candy imaginable from all corners of the world it’s no wonder why so many guests feel like kids again when they visit Welches.

Banff Fudgery – Famous for its handmade chocolates and treats, the Banff Fudgery specialises in chocolate truffles, bears paws, candy apples and of course fudge. You can even watch from the main street window as the expert chefs whip up your favourite fudge recipes!

Mountain Chocolates – Found at Caribou Corner on Banff Avenue, Mountain Chocolates prides itself as the only chocolate store in Banff to make everything on site. We highly recommend their handmade caramel corn and their caramel apples are somewhat of a Banff legend!

Chocolaterie Bernard Callebaut – One of Banff’s best kept secrets can be found inside the Harmony Mall on Banff Avenue. Inside you will find the amazing chocolate of Bernard Callebaut. Offering unique flavours from original Belgian family recipes, this lesser known candy store is a favourite amongst locals.

Stick a fork in us and roll us back to our Banff hotel because we are done! Bon Appetite friends.
