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.
