North Dakota Candy

Posted: Updated:

North Dakota will be celebrating its 125th anniversary this fall.

It was on November 2nd, 1889 when President Benjamin Harrison declared North Dakota a state.

In recognition of this event, four Pride of Dakota vendors worked together to create a 125th anniversary candy bar.

Mikey's Country Candy of Burlington makes the candy, Wagoner's Wagon of Mercer produced the chokecherry flavoring, Neiss Impression's of Minot did the packaging, and Home Sweet Home owner Linda Johnson will market the candy.

Chokecherry is the official North Dakota fruit, so there are three flavors of candy bars: chokecherry white, chokecherry dark and chokecherry milk chocolate.

Each candy bar sells for $2.95.

Linda Johnson, Home Sweet Home "I am all about supporting small businesses, it is better quality, we are a big family we worked together very well" 

In Minot, the 125th anniversary candy is available at Home Sweet Home or at Visit Minot.

But soon, it will be available across the state.
