Day 10 brings us to one of the sweetest spots in the Capital Region…Krause's Homemade Candy in Colonie! Walking into Krause's you're sort of transported to what a modern day, non-1970s version of Willy Wonka and the Chololate Factory…and it smells incredible!
Krause's Homemade Candy has been in the candy business since 1929…while the family has roots downstate and in the Hudson Valley, Krause's Homemade Candy was opened in Albany in 1986 on Central Ave near W Lawrence Ave. In 1999 they moved further west out Central Ave to their current location to handle the increasing popularity of their delicious chocolates and treats.
For the holidays, they have chocolate gifts for Christmas and Chanukah and some great stocking stuffers, too! And a box of assorted chocolates makes for a great hostess gift, too!
While Krause's is great for sweet treats for various holidays throughout the year, it's also great for shower and wedding favors. Their chocolate covered strawberries are perfection and they also have chocolate covered frozen bananas during the summer.
All I can say is that it's good I don't live too close to Krause's…I would be spending double the time in the gym!
Stop by Krause's at 1609 Central Avenue or follow them on Facebook!
