About Us...


The tastiest treats are often special family recipes passed down through generations.  Since Laura’s grandfather founded Ben Heggy Candy Company and her dad and uncles took over running the business, it only seemed right that she would open her own store to sell the delicious family chocolates.

In 1996, Laura realized her dream of owning her own business and opened Laura’s Candy & Nuts in her hometown North Canton, Ohio.  The shop sells about 40 varieties of Ben Heggy’s individually wrapped chocolates along with other favorites such as turtles, chocolate-covered pretzels, and almond bark.  Laura’s also carries nine varieties of Heggy’s fresh roasted nuts including customer favorite fancy mixed nuts and Heggy’s “special” nut, hard whites.

Laura’s is proud to feature Ben Heggy’s Chocolates and Heggy’s fresh roasted nuts to her hometown and all across the country.  We hope you enjoy the special treats our store has to offer.  Whether you’ve been shopping Laura’s Candies & Nuts for years or are new to the candy shop experience… We Welcome You!
