JORDAN, Minn. — A driver crashed into Minnesota’s Largest Candy Store in Jordan early Sunday morning, Aug. 11, missing a 40,000-piece puzzle the store hung up last week but taking down a wall and window as collateral damage.

But the store, a massive yellow barn that is part of Jim’s Apple Farm, was reopened later Sunday with the business announcing in a Facebook post that “we’re happy to say that everyone is ok” and that “80% of the chocolate table was untouched” after the crash.

Photos posted on Facebook show the vehicle took out a fence and then went right through a wall and window at the candy shop. In one photo, someone is holding a Chevrolet emblem that came off the vehicle.

The Minnesota State Patrol had few details of the crash, at first reporting it as an injury accident.

According to the State Patrol, the crash happened around 1 a.m. Sunday when two cars crashed at U.S. 169 and Delaware Avenue and one of the vehicles ran into the building housing the candy store.

The store’s Facebook page said the family-owned-and-operated business is “supported by apple orchards and produce fields in Jordan and Belle Plaine” and has been at its current location for 38 years.

It operates from May to November selling candy, apples, baked goods, fall produce and other items, many made locally.
