Chocolates by the Basket, Bowl or Buffet!

What’s a special occasion without chocolate?   The truth is candy, especially chocolate, makes every event just a little bit sweeter and much more memorable.

Hello, my name is Teresa Wall and I own 42nd Street Candy Company in Oklahoma City.  My road to owning a candy store took a few twists.  I was actually in banking for about seven years and then managed my husband’s medical practice for a couple more. I was a regular customer of the 42nd Street Candy Company, primarily because I loved creating gift baskets.  One day, I noticed that the store was for sale and decided it just might be the perfect business opportunity for me – an enjoyable, creative outlet plus a chance to work with people, two of my favorite things in life.  In 2000, I became the third owner of the 42nd Street Candy Company, which had originally opened Valentine’s Day in 1979.   The store operated for 28 years in only 600 square feet until last July when I moved it into a 1500 square foot space in the same building and stocked it full of all varieties of candy and gifts for every occasion.

At the 42nd Street Candy Company, we have just about every kind of candy imaginable, from jelly bellies, sours and gummies, divinity and salt water taffy to fine chocolates imported from Paris, Belgium and countries all over the world.  We create gift baskets for all sorts of events: Birthday baskets for children to wine (or champagne), cheese and chocolate baskets for our growing list of corporate clients (the alcoholic beverages are brought in by our customers).  Beautifully created gift baskets are ordered for weddings, showers, new employees and retirees, as well as a get well gift or special welcome for friends, families and business associates.   In addition to delicious, nostalgic and colorful candies, we also have a large selection of distinctive gifts which can also be included in your one-of-a-kind basket.  Our holiday collection is particularly unique and fun.

The 42nd Street Candy Company, our candy buffets are very popular for all types of special occasions.  We set up the buffet and display your choice of candies in a variety of beautiful jars, bowls and other decorate glass containers filled with your choice of candy and chocolates coordinated to complement your color scheme.  We deliver and supply everything, including the linens, favor bags and tablecloths for one very, sweet deal!

I invite you to stop in anytime and tour our three rooms of gifts and candies.  Or, simply call us with an occasion and budget.  At 42nd Street Candy Company, there’s something for every person, budget and occasion.   And for added convenience, we "ship globally and delivery locally."
