What’s better than chocolate? Chocolate at a discount! Russell Stover, which sells candy under the Russell Stover, Whitman’s, and Pangburn’s names, operates an online outlet store and a handful of retail outlet locations around the country. These carry fine chocolate in outdated boxes (you know, like Valentine’s boxes in March and Easter boxes in June), overstocks, and bloopers – candy that tastes fine but doesn’t look pretty enough to put in a gift box. The prices are great, about half of retail.
The online store is easy for everyone to get to! The stores may require a road trip:
2200 Stover Avenue
950 Industrial Drive
1993 Caramel Boulevard
3200 S. US Highway 287
