About the Business:
Begun in 1952 as a backyard hobby by Dorothy Pacey (Kim’s grandmother), Punta Clara Kitchen has grown into a family-owned and operated business that now involves FOUR generations of Paceys. Our specialty candies are still made using old, treasured family recipes. We handcraft our candies in our kitchen just as we have for over 65 years.
