Comments: Dear Dan Smith Candies,
My aunt (Adi Gelfand, may she rest in peace) was the reason you have the Star of David mints now on your Christmas page. She was an amazing woman, a real mover and shaker around the community (lived in Ridgway for so many years, but was always driving to Pittsburgh and all over PA to visit family; she was originally born in Vienna Austria). I'll always remember her fussing around to make sure there was always a supply of the Dan Smith mints at every Mehr and Gelfand family gathering. We'll miss her, but we have your mints to remember her by. Thanks very much for keeping up a tradition of ours.
Mike Mehr, age 55

PS> I may be in town with my Mom to visit a friend over Victorian Christmas weekend, perhaps we could stop by for a visit. Are you open on Saturdays?

Comments: My first job was at Dan Smith's when I was 16. I learned to make root beer milkshakes and sundaes with chocolate ice cream and p'nut butter fudge topping. YUMM! I remember one December weekend working in the candy factory putting the candies on top of the mint candies. My sweater smelled like mint for days! What memories. So glad to be able to order some of the BEST CHOCOLATE for Christmas in Florida. Keep on making the best.

Comments: I am so grateful that a friend from work, Jody, received care packages from Dan Smiths and brought them to work and shared with all of us! Can you imagine?! We all quickly devoured the candy and decided it was the most delicious candy ever. 10 years later, I'm still SO grateful to Susan who helps me with my orders. We get thank you notes from friends, physicians and neighbors each year telling us how much they love Dan Smith's candies. Don't ever quit making candy or we won't be welcomed at Christmas, our neighbors won't speak to us, our friends won't call and our physicians, well, who knows!

Comments: Our family traveled from Missouri to Pennsylvania last year during our vacation. While driving we stopped in a little town called Clarion and came upon your store. We absolutely fell in love with your peanut butter patties! We bought several boxes to take back to Missouri with us but sadly they did not last. Our children Jack (10) and Jasmine (8) found the chocolate and ate it along the way.
P.S. Have you though about advertising your store on Facebook? People like me who had never heard of this store will be pleasantly surprised when they discover the wonderful candies you have!

Comments: My father, Jim Siar, was good friends with Dan. Every summer when I was growing up, we enjoyed Dan's delicious ice cream and wonderful candy. The last time I was in Brookville, I bought a boatload of candy, but it is long since gone. It's great to know that the company is still in the family and that the candy is available online. I expect to order soon!

Comments: My mother was given Dan's ice cream from his porch every week while growing up in Brookville. Peanut Brittle was part of my Boy Scout (Trook 64) fund raising for many years and Christmas always included large volumns of chocolate nuts and mint waffers. It's nice to serve Brookville chocolate here and bring a piece of my life and memories to Florida.

Comments: My fiance & I discovered your delicious candy last year about this time when looking for valentine's day. We both think it's delicious & wished you had a location closer to us. When will you start boxing the candy in the heart shaped boxes for this valentines day? We stopped at your Clarion shop on our way to Pittsburgh earlier this week & you didn't have any available yet. We did purchase some candy anyway - couldn't resist ;)

Comments: I grew up in DuBois, Pa and I always had a Dan Smith's Peanut Butter Egg in my Easter basket. I LOVE them!!! I married and move to SC over 19 years ago, but still crave those eggs at Easter. Luckily, my parents still live in DuBois and have gotten me some over the years. I am so happy to have discovered that I can order them online and have them delivered to my home! Thank you, Dan Smith's for making such exceptional chocolate!!!

Comments: I was born in DuBois and grew up in Emporium. We moved to upstate NY when I was in high school and have been here ever since. I have had Dan Smith's candies since I was a child. My grandmother would get us candy every year for Christmas and Easter. My favorite was the flat peanut bunny which I don't think they sell online, the mints and the peanut butter egg. For years I had missed the candy and one day decided to see if they were online and they were. They still have great candy.

Comments: I was amaze with Dr. Wicca spell because WOW is the first word that comes to my mind to describe your services.
Life can be very displeasing especially when we loose the ones we love and cherish so much. I was in a relationship with Gavin, we loved and cherished ourselves for 3 good years and every thing was going on smoothly but 2 month ago he left me for a strange girl i never thought about. But thank God today i am happy with him again. All thanks to Dr Wicca, I was nearly loosing hope until I saw an article on how Dr Wicca could cast a love spell to make lovers come back. There is no harm in trying, I said to my self. I contacted him and after talking with him, i know he is a man to trust. I am so happy now... I and my lover are living together happily.Words will not be enough to appreciate what Dr Wicca has done for me. I have promised to share the good news as long as i live. Dr Wicca is powerful and his spell are very effective. For those who might also want to give him a try. Email him on email@example.com or find him on facebook on facebook.com/wicca.temple
