Velma's Candy - Locally Owned, Managed, and Operated by Women!

Kellie Sandefur, owner and local resident of Lynchburg, took her childhood memories of her grandparent’s grocery store that once lived two doors down from her shop, and created the sweetest spot in town. She brings back that good feeling of when you’d save your pennies to fill up a brown paper bag with all of your favorites. As a kid, my favorites were the Runts, Candy Cigarettes, Bottle Caps, and Smarties. What were some of your favorites?

What treats will I find in the sweetest spot in Lynchburg?

If you’re looking for a taste of whiskey, Velma’s Candy has a selection of fudge and other whiskey-infused chocolate candies. Not much for the whiskey flavor? Try their chocolate-covered oreos, truffles, apples, strawberries, and more!

    I live in Chico, CA and I can hardly wait to visit Lynchburg, TN again. The photo of the beautiful ladies reminds me of the Southern Hospitality and the Southern Belles in Lynchburg, TN. The first thing I want is to do is collect hugs from my family who live there. They are sweeter than candy. Then I want to go to Velma’s Candy store.
