In part 19 of our continuing Meet Our Vendors series, we would like to introduce you to the creators of some of our sweetest treats. Shurms Candy have quickly made a name for themselves in the taffy world. From their individual caramel apple or cherry caramel taffy’as to their boxes of Michigan flavors, Shurms are unbeatable in terms of taffy. To make them even more amazing, they don’t stop at just taffy but also make a number of other tasty treats including their “muddy mint”and their ever popular mint meltaways.
Located in Oakland Township, their story starts like many other great growing Michigan vendors:
Shurms Candy was started for one simple reason: to bring happiness to people.We’re not talking about life-changing happiness, but Shurms Candy can bring you joy if even for a couple minutes. To us, bringing happiness to people is a pretty good purpose in life to have. In the words of John Keating inDead Poets Society, “And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.” We would like to add candy to that list!
You can only find Shurms Candy in places that make people happy. From inspiring food markets to cider mills to island resorts to water parks, Shurms Candy makes appearances where fun is a priority! While Shurms Candy is made in Michigan and mainly sold in Michigan stores, you can always buy some right on our site.
What’s it like to eat any of our Shurms Candy? It’s an experience that makes your senses come to life. Upon seeing your first piece of our candy, you will be drawn in by the brilliant colors and textures. Then, you will inhale the fantastic aroma. Once you pop it in your mouth, you feel the soft, smooth texture and taste the blending of flavors that result in a rush that your brain won’t soon forget.
We are truly grateful to all those that have tried Shurms and keep coming back for more – we are thankful to be able to share our passion with you! If you have not tried Shurms yet, what are you waiting for??
We were excited to meet Shurms creators the first day they popped into our store to offer us a sample of their amazing goodies in our very first year. Now, we have been offering people access to these goodies for close to a year and looking forward to many more years to come!
