Chocolate Nugget Candy Factory

Chocolate Nugget Candy Factory - A well known landmark in Washoe Valley, NV and home to the famous miner that keeps watch over the busy retail location, that was once the family home, is a favorite for locals and tourists alike. Ed Feriance, the current owner and 3rd generation expert candy maker spends most of his time at the factory location at the foothills of Virginia City making the quality hand-crafted chocolates from secret recipes, known only to the family since 1936, with fresh ingredients and quality chocolate.

Originally from Ohio, he attended college at Akron University and joined the National Guard before returning to Reno in 1983 where he learned his skill in candy making from his father "Candyman Dan".  A successful entrepreneur in several industries along with an established insurance firm, he came home to take the company over from his brother in 2020.  Since then, Ed has set his sights on an additional location in Reno along with his recent opening in S. Lake Tahoe, CA.  He is also currectly negotiating with Goldbelly (The best gourmet mail order foods company) to distribute his famous thin and crisp Peanut Brittle nationwide.

Ed will speak to us about the art of hand-crafted chocolates.  Bring your sweetheart or a guest.  This is a sa...weet program you won't want to miss!  (Valentine's boxes of chocolates will be available for purchase)
