Kansas City's Best

Nellie's Sweet Shoppe



Ice Cream


Nellie's Sweet shoppe is a family-run business in Smithville, Missouri located on Main street across from the historic town square.


We offer a variety of fudge flavors that we make on site, specialty chocolates, hand-dipped ice cream, 'bag and weigh' candies and salt water taffy.  In addition we sell locally made jams, jellies, honey and craft soft drinks.  Our popular fudge subscription boxes are shipped all over the world.


Nellie's Sweet Shoppe was named for and in honor of our daughter/sister who was a 20+ year melanoma survivor. Because of her, we display free melanoma awareness and educational materials in the shoppe. We have adopted Nellie's personal motto as our own, and it is posted above our front door as a reminder to "Take Time to Enjoy Each Day!"

Three Easy Ways to Order


What people are saying about Nellie's Sweet Shoppe

I miss the small town candy shops of my youth. Glass jars filled with glossy chocolates, my palms filled with sweaty coins, anticipating sweet satisfaction. When you are a child, chocolate is the object of your desire. As you get older, desires get much more complicated. Still there, but now there is so much guilt. If you want to go back to a time when there is no guilt, just pure unadulterated pleasure, might I suggest Nellie's Sweet Shoppe. These people still get goosebumps about candy , just like you do. There is no guilt here, just a romping good time. Ice cream, homemade fudge (a new spotlight flavor each month) hard crack candy and yes glass jars of glossy chocolates. However you choose to let your inner child act out, the results will be finger licking lip smacking good.
