MOUNTAINHOME — A well-known candy man in the Poconos has died.

Harry Callie, owner of Callie’s Candy Kitchen in Mountainhome, passed away last week.

Callie opened his first store in Northampton County in 1953, and in 1972, moved the business to Monroe County.

Two years ago, Callie was named to the Candy Hall of Fame at an award ceremony in Florida.

“Any way he could, he was there for people, so that’s what they’ll remember, I think. No matter what he had going on in his life, he always made time for other people,” said Callie’s son-in-law Mark Reisenwitz, vice president of Callie’s Candy Kitchen.

Harry Callie was 80 years old.

    We always stopped at Callies when we camped at Promised Land. For over 30 years a must stop on our way home. And the pretzel factory too. RIP

    We would always take our girls to see Mr. Callie when we would stay at the Lehigh Gorge Campground. So many great memories of his candy demo and taking the time to talk to our girls and any of the friends that we would take along. He left a lasting impression on our girls. They loved going there! Love and Hugs to the family!

    This is so sad. I am from Mountainhome and I can remember him ever since I was a little girl. He was always so nice and loved to let people sample the chocolate. My favorite was the chocolate covered potato chips!
