Handmade Candy Canes

In the past, I've seen threads about handmade candy canes on main street. Does anyone know if they still make these, if they're still only made on certain days, and by chance, which days those will be this year?

thanks

I'm interested too! I have heard they make a limited amount and run out quickly. We will be there just before Thanksgiving and would love to get a few!

I don't know the dates, but if you go, be preapred to wait in line a LONG time. I know last year we went on a Saturday. People started lining up when the park opened at 7:00 am. The first batch came off at 11:00 am. I think they make a couple more batches after that. It is limited to 2 per person.
So, if you do decide to try and get some, be prepared to get in line as soon as the park opens.

The people over at MP (another Dis fan site) are usually the first to report the dates when they've been released. So far, no release date yet, but you can follow this thread closely to see when they are reported:

4 hours in line for 2 candy canes - only at disney!!! They would have to give out winning lottery tickets for me to stand in that line. Of course, I can't think of another places that makes you want to take home their paper napkins & paper plates. They are definately the best at what they do.

I do think this is one line we will be skipping. Only 3 weeks left!!!

The DL Candy Kitchen has a phone number you can call and the automated message tells you what sweets are available and when. The number is 1-714-781-0112. But when I called yesterday, the message hasn't been updated since October.

But have you had one??? I had some of one this past January. Nancy (yellowmickeyponchos) brought some to a mini meet we did and she shared them. OMG, they were soooooooooooooooo good....and handmade by Guy Fieri! Definite plus! LOL

That said, I have NO desire to wait in a line that long so I'm sure that will be the ONLY time I ever have one of the handmade DLR candy canes.

They don't usually start making them until December.

I love hand made candies, but I get my fix by buying candy canes from Niemann's. They are beautiful, shiny, translucent, and oh so tasty. I get the assortment of peppermint, spearmint, and cinnamon.

So, if you really want hand made candy canes but don't want to stand in lines for hours, there are other options.

You're so welcome! I hope they update the message soon. Even if they don't mention candy canes, it's nice to hear what other yummy sweets they'll have!
