How It All Began

Brooke’s Candy Co. was being formed long before she knew it. As a teenager Brooke made mints for her sister Dana’s wedding shower, only to get an order from a neighbor for more. Brooke also sold out of her Peanut Butter Buckeyes at a local festival when she was 14.

After graduating high school she moved to Northern Illinois and met her husband Doug. She always remembered her dream to own a candy shop one day.

In 2002, Brooke and her husband moved back to the area where she grew up In Indiana. Brooke and her mother Donna and sister Dana made her dream come true by starting Brooke’s Candy Co. in 2004.

After finalizing recipes for their old-fashioned Almond Toffee, Fudge, Pecan Turtles, Mints and other goodies, they were ready to go.

People ask them why Dana? To them the answer is simple, they knew Dana was in trouble after loosing many buildings in the last 7 years like the grocery store, flower shop, auction house and more to fires and just being old and falling down. They wanted to bring something positive back to the community.

They started a retail shop set inside the 1900’s Plantation style home that was there childhood home. Brooke and Dana'a mother Donna and father Kent worked many years restoring the old home to it’s original look and was the home of Brooke’s Candy Co. for 7 years until moving the store to a new building next door.

 Brooke and Dana's Mother Donna retired in 2014. The business is now ran by the sister team Brooke and Dana. In February of 2015 the sisters decided to start another company named Brooke's Naturals that makes all natural gluten and rice free baking mixes for the wholesale market. You can find these mixes in over 100 stores in Indiana like Kroger, Marsh, Carmel Market District, Fresh Thyme, Green Bean Delivery and many more.

You can pick up Brooke's Candy products at Beaslers Market and Clabber Girl Bake Shop in Terre Haute, Carmel Market District and other small shops in Indiana. 

Brooke's Almond Toffee is best known for being in the 2015 Grammy swag bags for the stars to enjoy. They have had people all the way from California tell them they have seen Brooke’s candy Co. on TV and had to stop in and say hi while on vacation.
