Made With Love

Patsy's gourmet popcorn, chocolate, treats and candies are handcrafted and made with love onsite.


Our story began over 100 years ago. In the late 1800’s an Irishman named Patsy Mehaney followed a dream. A dream inspired by his taste buds. Patsy made the best candied popcorn and taffy he could which he sold at local fairs and various events around Terra Haute, Indiana. 

Legend has it a company called Cracker Jack heard of his famous candied popcorn and Patsy traded his recipe to them before coming west. Patsy settled in Manitou Springs, Colorado at the foot of, “The Purple Mountain Majesty”, Pikes Peak in 1903 and started Patsy’s candies.



The Patsy’s Candies story is filled with adventures and delighting people through high quality, handcrafted confections for over 100 years!

Patsy’s has the best peanut brittle I have ever tasted. I like to consider myself a peanut brittle aficionado and Patsy’s peanut brittle is amazing. This is a treat any time of the year. If you love peanut brittle don’t wait for the holidays.

Great homemade candy and very pleasent / helpful staff. We took our granddaughter and she found a few things she liked. The taffy has many different flavors and she really enjoyed them. My wife and I had the chocolate with walnut fudge. Wonderful!

A Staple of Colorado. This place has amazing hand-made candies and the family who owns this pours their heart and soul into their products. The employees are kind and generous and we received an amazing tour today that put into perspective how difficult making candy is. We love coming here and will do so as often as we can!
