The Columbia Candy Kitchen has been the home of fine handmade confections
in Columbia, California since the late 1800s, when a Danish confectioner
settled in this gold rush town. A fellow Danish miner, C. Rex Nelson, became
the confectioner in the 1930s. After four generations the Nelson family
still produces the finest candies from those original recipes. Our ingredients
are the purest and freshest available, cooked in bright copper kettles and
cooled on marble tables that are over 100 years old.
Columbia, now a State Historical Park, is filled with history and tradition;
like the Nelson family, carrying on a heritage from another time.
Gold Rush candies, pure as gold.
