More About Joy Lyn's

Joy Lyn's Candies received international attention in the Manufacturing Confectionery magazine featured on their cover several times as well as winning numerous awards from RCI (Retail Confectioners International) for their Black Gold Truffles, Easter candies, Paradise Chocolate Fest Founders, Best New Piece, "Willy Nilly" and best overall presentation at the RCI International Conventions over the years.

The business was founded in 1969 by Don Memmer, a professionally trained candy maker. In 2000, Bill & Pam Hartley purchased Joy Lyn's and became the fourth owners of the business. Each owner has served as a tutor/mentor to the next, passing on and teaching recipes and techniques. The popularity of the business grew along with the types of candies offered.

In October 2018, Pam & Bill proudly sold the business to their son, Glenn, and his wife, Jody, on 10/10/2018. Almost a month later on Nov. 8, 2018 tragedy and devastation struct the the Town of Paradise when the deadliest fire in California's history destroyed 95% of the Town. Sadly, all of the Hartley's homes and candy shop were lost. Shortly after the fire, n existing building in Paradise was purchased and painstakingly renovated to begin the history of HEAVENLY CANDIES MADE IN PARADISE once again. On October 1, 2020, a new chapter and version of Joy Lyn's Candies began as Glenn and Jody reopened Joy Lyn's at its new location.
