Esther Price Candies

The World's best Chocolate really is Esther Price Candies located in my hometown, Dayton, Ohio!!!!!!!!!!



Except for Hershey's, it is the ONLY chocolate I will put 2 my lips!






Thanks for that, Eve. I love hearing about chocolate sellers that I've never tried before. I'm from Ohio, but from the northern part of the state.


I was completely oblivious to Esther Price, but they sound like they are definitely worth checking out.


If you're in Georgia now, I guess you probably are having withdrawal symptoms. :) Do you have your family send you care packages (aka survival kits) of Esther Price Candy?


Hopefully, one of these days I'll get to sample some of their fine chocolates.


Thanks again for sharing your favorite with us!

International Shipping is Worse!
by: Angie

Thanks, Eve. :) Your nickname is well deserved, I'm sure.

I know what you mean about shipping costs. I'm in Australia so shipping is out of the question in most cases. I'll be back in the US in a few months for a whole year, so I'll probably gain 20 lbs. indulging in all of my old favorites and discover some new ones too.

Blessings,
Angie

I knew her well
by: Patrick Williams

As a young man (17) I boarded from a family that
lived in a house behind Ester Price.Since I mowed
her lawn and helped clean the large candy making
kettles, I knew her well. She was a super person.
I am now 75 and every time I get to Dayton, I
drive by Wayne Avenue and remember the good times
from days gone by.I also eat more than my share
of the best candy made.

Hi Patrick,

How wonderful to hear your experience of knowing Esther Price personally and helping her out and enjoying her chocolates when you were a lad.


Those must be wonderful memories! I'm definitely looking forward to taste testing Esther Price chocolates some time later this year.


Thank you so much for taking the time to tell us about your memorable experience.

Blessings,
Angie

Anna Clair Candy
by: Angie

I'm not familiar with Anna Clair Candy personally, but it sounds good based on your description. I've had a look around and only found them at a couple of places.

The first one that has them listed is Margaretes Fine Chocolates.

That's not a site I'm familiar with, but do let us know if you decide to try them. We want to know what you think.

The only other place I've seen them is Kay's Hallmark located at 4828 Camp Bowie, Fort Worth, Texas. The phone number is (817)731-8283. It doesn't look like you can purchase directly from the site, but perhaps you can give them a ring and place an order over the phone.

Hope that helps you locate the Annaclairs or Anniclairs you are looking for.

Blessings,
Angie

After Esther, there is no other....
by: Chocolatelover

After eating Esther Price chocolate, you will want no one else's, because this chocolate is velvety smooth like none you have ever tasted. Its still homemade by some people, whose families have worked there 2 generations! It is a perfect chocolate taste experience-NOT machined for that designer look. Like a beautiful woman, who needs no makeup to be scrupcious, Esther will ruin you. You will want no other chocolate! Like other Daytonians and many out-of-staters, who share in this discovery- I'm hooked! HELP!!!!!

nothing compares!
by: bestcandy!

I was born and raised in Dayton, but when I relocated to Portland, OR I felt like a part of me was missing! Over here, we have See's Candy, but their chocolate is chalky and pretty horrible tasting. Luckily, my mom visits a few times a year and I'm like a dog meeting their owner by the door, waiting for her to unzip her suitcase and pull out the gold shiny box. Whenever my coworkers hear my mom's going to be in town, they shout at me with excitement "IS SHE BRINGING THE CHOCOLATE?" Esther Price chocolate is truly a treasure.

Ester's = Hershey's
by: Kurt Krohn

Funny you all are saying it's the best CHOCOLATE in the world... even the original person said they will only put Esther Price & Hershey's to their lips. HAHA... little do you know, Esther Price actually USES Hershey's chocolate to make their candies! They do NOT actually make the chocolate itself. Almost ALL of your smaller chocolate candy makers do this, but they do not all use Hershey's - which is why they don't all taste as good. But I'll still be the first to agree that Esther Price are my favorite chocolate candies!

Esther Price is the best
by: MissBrenda

My husband and I moved to eastern Tennessee from the Dayton, OH area 5 years ago. The one thing we can't do without is Esther Price candy! We stock up when we return to Dayton for visits. We've given boxes to our TN friends and now they are hooked too. That's in addition to sending boxes to grown children on the east and west coast.

Right now, I'm dreaming about their peanut butter easter eggs and caramel crosses. My husband is going back next week, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they haven't sold out of the eggs and crosses. There is no better chocolate anywhere in the country!

Chocolate IS homemade
by: loves Esther

Actually Kurt you are wrong - my family has worked there for generations and Esther DOES make their chocolate from scratch.

in the beginning Esther Price made her candy at home. NEW
by: Donna Lee Roberts-Ruef

Esther Price started here business in her home basement at 1820 Fauver Avenue in Dayton, Ohio.
I grew up at 2018 Fauver Avenue. My mom told a lot a people they need 1820 Fauver Avenue.
Her candy is the best. She used to hire girl from Belmont High School to work after school dipping the fillings in the chocolate. You can tell by the tops of the candy what's inside.
I'm in my late 60's and still love her candy.
