Stratford played host to one of Canadaâ€™s most popular competition television shows, The Amazing Race Canada 6. Airing on July 31, 2018 as the fifth leg on their journey, Amazing Race contestants had to complete a dramatic challenge at the Stratford Festival by learning a choreographed stage fight and performing it on the Festival Theatre Stage.
The seven teams were then detoured having to either complete a challenge collecting clues as they paddled down the Avon River OR joining the RhĂ©o Thompson Candies team, packaging 10 boxes of Fruit Jellies and 10 boxes of Mint SmoothiesÂ®.
Three teams chose to come to the candy factory and complete the packaging Detour! Martina and Phil, Courtney and Adam, as well as Zainab and Monica packaged those candies like pros!
Here, Zainab takes a moment to celebrate completing packaging the Mint SmoothieÂ® chocolates as Monica meticulously checks over the final boxes.
All three teams completed the detour and received their clue directing them to The Queen of the Square where host, Jon Montgomery, and Stratford Mayor, Dan Mathieson, waited for contestants.
The RhĂ©o Thompson Candies team had an amazing time filming The Amazing Race Canada! All of the boxes of Fruit Jellies and Mint SmoothiesÂ® were donated to the local House of Blessing. You can order your Fruit Jellies by clicking here or try our famous Mint SmoothiesÂ® by clicking here.
Owners, Marc and Kristene, along with their son, Oilver, take a moment to pose with a promotional sign while they were on vacation.
Wow. Try the mint smoothies. You'll be amazed at how good these things are. I dare you to stop at one! They have hundreds of other great candies of all kinds. Worth a drive to Stratford just to visit an amazing small scale local landmark.

I live in Stratford and I have family who come to visit from the States and that's the first place they want to go when they come. I can honestly say that they are the best chocolates I've ever had. It's worth the trip!

Simply put, the best candy store Iâ€™ve ever been to. The mint smoothies are, in my opinion, practically perfect candy. Highly recommended.
