Reimer's Candies, Gifts & Ice Cream in Three Rivers, CA

Over 50 years ago, a Visalia candy maker started making and selling chocolates at the little red gingerbread house in Three Rivers, California.  Since then, guests from all over the world have flocked to the candy store for a sweet treat. Reimers has long been owned and operated as a family business. Owners, Lynn and Mary Anne Bretz, continue the tradition of old world charm and delicious candy making that loyal customers expect from Reimers.

Located on Highway 198/Sierra Drive in Three Rivers, on the Middle (Main) Fork of the Kaweah River and only a short distance from the entrance to Sequoia National Park, Reimer's is a popular meeting place for guests from nearby communities as well as from distant worldwide cities.  All who experience Reimer's agree this is a special and delightful place.

The Candy Shop

We have a temptation for all seasons and reasons.  Our prized chocolate collection features over 80 varieties of sinfully smooth and rich confections made with the finest gourmet chocolate, fresh cream, and select ingredients including local fruit and nuts.

We feature a large selection of candies including licorice, chews, sours, our famous homemade peanut brittle, mixed nut brittle and English toffee.

Wander through the candy shop and browse our large selection of gourmet foods and nostalgic candies.  In the fall, you'll also see our world-famous Stollen, which is a German Christmas bread, gracing the shelves.  Glance into our kitchen windows any time, and you might just catch us making our delicious confections.  Call ahead of time and schedule a tour of the candy factory (minimum needed for tour: 10 people).  Let us tempt you!

The Ice Cream Shop

When you enter our ice cream shop you will notice the aroma of our fresh homemade waffle cones!  They are ready for a scoop of yummy old-world ice cream in over two dozen flavors all made right here at our store. Locally grown wild blackberries, peaches, and nuts, as well as fresh cream, make our ice creams and sherberts magical!

Us locals always say we only go to Reimer’s when we have guests, because if we indulged every time we passed the place we wouldn’t fit into our doorways. If you catch the time just right while waiting for an ice cream cone you can see the candies marching down the conveyor belt as chocolate drips over them. Oh my. YUM!

Have always enjoyed taking a drive on the weekend around the lake and stop off at Reimers for a Turtle or two. The ice cream is always great and worth every penny. The novelty gifts are always a treat to get something different than you get everywhere else. Always wanted to work there.
