Is the candy from last Valentine’s Day already gone and you still have a sweet tooth? I may be able to help you out. Did you know that we have a candy shop right here in beautiful downtown Lyle? It is located in what the long time residents call “the Old Chevron Station” and the newbies call “The blue building”. To all others it is at 502 State Street. The husband runs the “Elk Crossing” side of the business with jerky from elk, salmon, bison and beef, but the wife runs the “Nook of Treasures’ Sweets” making the candy on the premises. I’m here to tell you it is some of the best candy I’ve tasted; (variety of fudges and caramels, etc.). They also carry a line of goat’s milk products from High Prairie Homestead and gift cards from Lanofoza Artistic Photography. Open daily 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., so stop in and check it out. I’m sure you will be glad you did.
