The second and third generations of Grambsch family members have been coming to Duluth every year since the early 1980's to fire up the old stove and fill the Depot, in Duluth, with the sweet smell of handmade candy.

Passing down the family trade still remains just as important to the family as it did in the beginning.

Granddaughter of the original candy maker, Carmella Anderson, says "It's important to all of us because it's a family tradition we grew up with, and we've been able now to share with our children and grandchildren, since my grandfather is no longer doing it. So we've been able to pass that tradition on and they're all learning how its done."

Their original store opened up in Loyola, Wisconsin back in the 19-20's. Preserved for history, the store is now a display on Depot Square.
