Campbell's Sweets Factory began their story over 40 years ago when Amos Campbell opened up four franchise shops to sell his famous Karmelkorn.

Fear's Confections like to say that their sweets are just to die for. It began in March 2010 as a home-based mail order and catering business, but business got to be so demanding that they had to open up a shop with a brand-new kitchen to keep up. In 2013, they bought a retail space and expanded their product lines, now offering a massive variety of handmade chocolates, caramels, toffees, truffles, and more!
