The Bottom Line

Dinstuhl's is undoubtedly Memphis' finest confectioner.


  • Dinstuhl's confections are always fresh because they are made locally.
  • Dinstuhl's has four Memphis area locations.
  • They hand make a full line of Southern confections including divinity and pralines.


  • Because they are a small company, they will occasionally be sold out of a particular candy.
  • During the week, Dinstuhl's is only open during regular business hours.


  • There is no sweeter gift for Valentine's Day than a box of Dinstuhl's chocolate covered strawberries.
  • Dinstuhl's Cashew Crunch, a cashew brittle that is dusted with coconut, is the company's best seller.
  • The pralines at Dinstuhl's are every bit as good as Grandma's -- maybe better!

Guide Review - Dinstuhl's Fine Candies

When you walk through the door at any Dinstuhl's location, you are immediately met with the smell of sweet, fresh chocolate. Their gleaming display cases show off the finest of fudges, truffles, brittles, and so many other treats.

If you can't decide just what to try, chat with the friendly staff at Dinstuhl's. They are happy to make recommendations based on your personal tastes and have even been known to offer a sample or two. For the carb-conscious, Dinstuhl's offers an extensive line of sugar-free candies including chocolate covered creams, jellies, and nuts.

At the Pleasant View Dinstuhl's location, you can see the candy makers at work. In fact, Dinstuhl's invites school groups to call and schedule a tour of their facilities. Having experienced this tour myself, I should warn you that you will be tempted to take home many of the shop's sweets when the tour is complete.

If you have never tried Dinstuhl's candy, stop in and pick up a piece (or two or three). You will certainly not be disappointed -- these chocolatiers have been in business since 1902 and their expertise is evident in their product.

RUDE!!!, Member angel0855

My family and I where in the retail store in Bartlett on a Monday a few weeks back and in all my years of shopping, we never dealt with such a rude women that seem to just be a miserable women. This women had come out of an offfice to voice her ignorance we assume. The chocolate is nothing better than any other chocolates our family has tried.
