Remember walking into an old-fashioned candy shop when you were a kid? You had your weekly allowance balled up in your hand, wondering what goodies it might buy. How much could you stuff into that paper bag, you wondered? The smell of saltwater taffy, cotton candy and chocolate filled the air, as you looked at glass jars filled with colourful candies and rows of treats on display.
Horse Creek Heritage Candy & Gifts brings back those moments, and lets today’s children discover the magic of a traditional candy store for the first time.
Situated on Cochrane’s main street right next to the legendary MacKay’s Ice Cream outlet, Horse Creek evokes southern Alberta’s western heritage. Stepping through the front door is like taking a step back in time. The look, feel and products at Horse Creek Candy & Gifts celebrate Alberta’s prairie and ranching heritage.
Horse Creek is now proudly serving Enceladus chocolates! Gourmet Belgian chocolates, locally made in small batches……milk, dark, white, pink peppercorn, organic matcha, oreo, smartie, dipped licorice, dipped fudge and whatever magical delights inspire our chocolatier each week…..yum!
Enceladus is a moon of Saturn with a salty ocean and one of the brightest objects in the solar system, the perfect inspiration for delicious indulgences……….but the back of our shop has unique gifts, Cochrane items (fridge magnets, t-shirts baseball hats etc.), locally-made Saskatoon berry pies, berries, salad dressing, syrup and jam, local honey with many flavours like ginger and turmeric, local pancake mix with many delicious flavours, maple-flavoured (almost) everything….even maple bacon lollipops?, art from local artists and the finest alpaca clothing around….ponchos, socks, baby blankets etc…….and so much more, we always source out new and exciting products, always of the finest quality. We even have a real chuckwagon used in the Calgary Stampede Parade that’s full of unique gifts and candies.
We also specialize in vegan, sugar-free, dairy free, gluten-free and organic products. Can’t find an item you want, let us know we will try to find it.
Come and check us out! (the music is also quite pleasurable).
COVID-19 update: We take the health and safety of our staff and customers very seriously. We are continuously sterilizing our shop and watching out for all updates as required. However, we will remain open for as long as we are able to and welcome all the support we can get during these difficult times. Our free samples have been suspended, but we hope to resume these as soon as possible.
See you all soon!
