A Family Tradition Since 1952

Ole Smoky Candy Kitchen was founded in 1950 by Dave and Peggy Dych. The couple was traveling to California to seek their fortune, and stopped for a visit in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. The young couple immediately recognized the potential of Gatlinburg as a growing motor tourist destination. They envisioned a visually entertaining main street business, serving the tourists with wholesome homemade candies.

In 1989, we stopped in Gatlinburg and I first was introduced to this fantastic taffy.
From 1989 until 2000 I stopped once or twice a year on trips from Florida to New York just to get the Taffy. It is the best.

I visited Gatlinburg for Christmas and purchased the old fashion pecan logs covered in all of those pecans. My family loved them. I am so glad I was able to order them online. I cannot wait to receive them. They taste so good!

Everyone knows peanut brittle - Grandma used to have it ready on visits! But WHO KNEW that cashew brittle is so incredible awesome?! I DO and can't get enough!
