Along the D&L Trail, you may expect to find bike shops, pizza joints, and places to lodge for the night. But, if you’re looking to satisfy your sweet tooth, visit Jenny’s Sweets and More in Lehighton. This penny candy shop stocks candies, chocolates, sodas, and other treats that hearken back to a “simpler” time.

Jenny, born and raised in Lehighton, opened the candy shop 2 years ago. It came out of a desire to spread warmth and love in her hometown. She wanted to add to the fondness of her town for locals and visitors. Her hope is that all who visit experience what her town has to offer. 

Fun Fact: Jenny is so passionate about her quaint, community-driven hometown that she wrote a trilogy of books about life in Lehighton!
