Logon’s Candies is a unique custom candy store located off the beaten path in downtown Ontario, California. A few years ago, my family and I had the opportunity to visit Logan’s Candies on a field trip to see a live candy cane making demonstration.
Logan’s Candies has been making signature candy canes and chocolates by hand for over 80 years. It is a home grown business and ran by the same family today. Logan’s Candies makes candy canes year round in all sorts of shapes and flavors. You can even custom order their candy canes for special events such as birthday party, the birth of a new baby or anniversary.
Logan’s Candies Candy Cane Demonstration
Logan’s Candies candy cane making process is fascinating to watch. Here’s how they do it! First, they melt the ingredients. Next, they put the melted candy on a hook on the wall and pull it over and over again. Then they twist a red candy strip together with a white candy strip. Finally, they cut the strip into small sizes, mold the tip of the candy cane into a hook and package it up. They even share the candies that they make right in front of you. When the candy is first melted and served warm it just melts in your mouth. It is delicious!
How To Book A Logan’s Candies Candy Cane Demonstration
During the holidays, Logan’s Candies Candy Cane Demonstrations sell out fast! So they begin to accept requests for tours starting in August 1 through the mail.
To make a reservation, you need to fill out a 3 x 5 index card with the following information:
- Your Name
- Mailing Address
- Day and Evening Phone Numbers (include your cell # if that’s the best way to reach you)
- Name of Group (scouting, church, homeschool, etc.)
- Size of Group (list separately the number of children and adults that will be attending)
- The approximate age range of the children in your group
- The city your group is from
- Indicate if your group has been to a candy cane demonstration before. If so, include how long ago it was.
Then mail your card, along with a self addressed stamped envelope to:
Attn: Candy Cane Demos
125 W. “B” Street
Ontario CA 91762
After Logan’s Candies receives your card, your group will be entered into a drawing. Logan’s Candies tries very hard to accommodate all tour requests, but there’s no guarantees. If your card is drawn, they will call you between September 20 – October 30 to schedule and confirm your demonstration date and time.
Candy Cane demonstrations take place Monday – Friday at 5:30 pm, 7:00 pm and 8:30 pm. Demonstrations lasts approximately one hour. The cost to attend a demonstration is $6.50 per child, which includes a goodie bag of candy for each child to take home, along with the bending of a warm candy cane while in the store. Adults cost $1.75 per person. If an adult would like to bend a warm candy cane during the demonstration, the price is a total $3.50. A credit card will be required at time of booking.
Please show up 15-20 minutes prior demonstrations to ensure availability. Public restrooms are not available, so please plan accordingly.
While at a demonstration, I also recommend that you purchase some candy canes as presents for your family and friends. Logan’s candy canes taste so much better than what you buy at the store and range in size from 6″ to 6′ (yup, feet)!
