After years of serving Houston residents pecan crisps, it’s the end of the road for Kegg’s Candies. The chocolate manufacturing business just posted a message on Facebook to let fans know about the closure.
“We are sorry to say that Keggs candies is closing permanently effective July 31st,” the message reads. “Please visit our location in Meyerland at 4934 Beechnut Houston 77096 and receive 25% off of your favorite treats while supplies last.”
Meanwhile, this is what viewers see on the homepage (see below). Kegg’s originally launched in 1946, according to the Houston Chronicle. When it expanded to its Westpark factory in 2009, employees were producing between 30,000 and 40,000 pounds of chocolate each year by hand.
Eater called over to the Meyerland store location and learned that the factory is closed permanently and the Meyerland store will sell the remaining inventory from the factory until the end of the month, July 31.
So for chocolate lovers who want one last taste of Kegg’s candies, better get there sooner rather than later in case things sell out.
