Our candy is made and sold by the contemplative nuns of Our Lady of the Mississippi Abbey in Dubuque, Iowa. Also known as “Trappistine Creamy Caramels” for our signature caramel candies, our candy shop also offers chocolate-coated caramels, mint candies, chocolate hazelnut candies, truffles, and caramel sauce. We support ourselves by manual labor, especially by the sale of our candy, which is made with the care and the loving attention to quality we try to bring to the whole of our life. We love our candy and we think you will too!

Monastery Candy is still taking and fulfilling online orders. Along with the rest of the world,
we are doing our best to learn and comply with official directives regarding COVID-19 safety and
sanitation, as the situation evolves. We have closed our on-site gift shop, but as long as carriers
continue to deliver we should be able to continue to ship our products out.
We will keep you updated with any changes. We continue to pray for all those in our world affected by the virus, and for all those working to ensure our safety and well-being. Blessings!
