CandyStrike Emporium Olde Tyme Candy & More


With over 15 years in the candy business, the Cappell family - new owners of the CandyStrike Emporium in Placerville, CA - bring a wealth of accumulated candy know-how which spans three generations. Using only the finest ingredients including Barry Callebaut chocolate, and Belgian white chocolate, you will immediately taste a confection to rival any other!

Dedicated to making "your candy dreams come true", owner Ryan Cappell says he and son Kyle can whip up whatever confection you can imagine. If you need a special candy for that special occasion, they can accomodate! If you can think it, they can make it! (And they have plenty of yummy confections of their own imagining!).

While they could have settled in another community, it was Placerville's unique charm that drew the Central Valley family to this area. After looking at locations in Monterey, Santa Cruz, Sacramento and San Francisco, they fell in love with the community and have plans to "make CandyStrike a destination" while embracing the unique history of Placerville.
