For those of you interested in ordering Amish-made candy through the mail, R&R Candy Shoppe in Coloma, WI will ship any order to you for free as long as your purchase meets their minimum order of 6 lbs or more. If you can plan a visit there, be sure to stop Monday - Saturday since they are closed on Sunday (the Amish never conduct business on Sunday).
Hours were not posted for this store but if you get there during normal business hours, most likely they will be open. We actually stopped there at 5pm on a Friday night and the "Open" sign was still posted on the door. And even though it seemed somewhat late in the day, there was actually another customer that pulled up right behind us. The downside to stopping at a store like this so late in the day is the bare shelves and lack of bakery selection. Since the Amish do not use refrigeration, you will almost always be guaranteed that your bakery purchase is fresh from that morning so getting there earlier is always better.

R&R Candy Shoppe crafts their homemade candy with kerosene burners, Wisconsin-made butter, and their fudge is made with goat milk. You really can't beat the taste of candy like this when it's made in small batches.
Their brochure features their best seller - Cashew Crunch. They also make chocolate covered cashew crunch. Two items I noticed that I haven't come across before in an Amish candy shop were date balls and chocolate Dutch balls. They also sell fresh Maple syrup from local trees, handmade wooden spoons, canned pie fillings, and jams.
