Nandy’s Candy - 1220 East Northside Drive, Jackson

More than just a sweets shop, this old-fashioned candy store serves nostalgia with a side of cane sugar. Nandy’s Candy is the perfect place to pick up sweet stocking stuffers in the (old Saint) nick of time, from festive hot cocoa bombs to any flavor jelly bean you can think of.

Christmas-themed items currently featured on the Nandy’s menu include assorted chocolate boxes, foil-wrapped chocolates in the shape of Christmas presents and even chocolate-dipped marshmallows reminiscent of everyone’s favorite red-nosed reindeer.

Nandy’s Candy also offers freshly made popcorn, peanut brittle, caramels and gift baskets that are perfect for a last-minute gift.

What’s Christmastime without sticky-sweet baked goods? Campbell’s Bakery specializes in from-scratch and baked fresh treats year-round. However, their holiday treats are a huge draw for locals and visitors.
