Ancient Egyptians are credited with the invention of candy. Sometimes called sweets, lollies or sweetmeats, they can bring out happiness, relaxation or even motivation.

Wayne’s Candy Company is located just off South Main, on the corner of East Carolina Avenue and 2nd Street, and has been part of the Memphis landscape for 76 years; walk inside and prepare to be amazed!
