There are some food places that may be hard to describe because they do not fit into a conventional particular traditional description. Sometimes it is because a place is so unique it is hard to explain. Other times the place can mix and match things in new and unusual ways. In Canton, Ohio a local favorite that defies normal description is Heggy’s Nut Shop.
Heggy’s Nut Shop is located at 3200 Tuscarawas Street West, Toledo, Ohio. Yes as the name suggest you can buy nuts at Heggy’s Nut Shop. However nuts are just a small part of the menu at Heggy’s Nut Shop. Although the nuts do help us explain one of the things Heggy’s Nut Shop is.
Heggy’s Nut Shop is a candy shop. Part of being a candy shop is that one of its more popular food items is anything with nuts. If it has nuts and is a candy Heggy’s Nut Shop has it. If you want chocolate nuts of any kind they have them. They also have other kinds of candy nuts too. They even have regular old nuts. In fact the whole place seems a little nuts since it can’t decide what it is.
Yes there are other candies here too mostly of the chocolate kind. For instance you can get chocolate dipped strawberries here. Obviously chocolate nuts are a popular favorite. They have hot fudge sundaes too, which are amazing.
While this might sound like Heggy’s Nut Shop is a candy store, it is more then that because it is also a traditional diner — literally out of the 50’s with the sign out front to prove it. The diner offers classic diner fare but with a side of excellence. You don’t just get french fries, you get a bowl of fries with creamy butter on top. They have soups, hamburgers, and corn dogs too. Everything is really good. When I say everything, I mean it, even the prices are good. The prices here are cheap especially for how much food you get and how good it is. The only bad thing is all that good food might not be good for you and you might want more then you should have of it.
Heggy’s Nut Shop is a classic Toledo food spot that has been around a long time and thanks to its popularity will stay around a long time to come.
