Is Kringle’s a real Christmas shop in the movie Candy Cane Lane?

“Candy Cane Lane” is a festive blend of family-friendly comedy that promises candy canes, holiday enchantment, and Eddie Murphy. A charming Christmas adventure that tells a story of neighborly rivalry set against the spectacular Christmas decorations on East Acacia Avenue in El Segundo, California. Screenwriter Kelly Younger‘s childhood memories of growing up in El Segundo and seeing the colorful displays on Candy Cane Lane served as inspiration for the film. With the arrival of Kringle’s, a mysterious pop-up Christmas store, the story takes a surreal turn.

Murphy plays Chris Carver in “Candy Cane Lane,” a father who has an unshakeable affection for Christmas. Chris finds the ideal answer while juggling family dynamics and a recent layoff: winning a decorating competition with a sizable cash reward. He has no idea that this choice will bring him into the mysterious realm of Kringle’s—a Christmas shop hidden beneath an overpass—and its eerie surroundings. A wild ride of enchanted celebrations, mishaps, and a race against time to avoid being captured by a crazy elf named Pepper awaits. One could question if there are any real-life equivalents to Kringle’s, the enigmatic Christmas store in the film. As tvacute explores there is a real location with the name Kringle.

Is Kringle’s a real Christmas shop in the movie Candy Cane Lane?

It’s interesting to note that there are real locations with the name Kringle’s, but they are very different from the magical store portrayed in the movie “Candy Cane Lane.” Basically, even while the real Kringle’s restaurants provide wonderful Christmas experiences, they don’t have the magical and ethereal qualities that are shown in the movie. The fantasy element of “Candy Cane Lane” is enhanced and the film’s distinct attractiveness is enhanced by the contrast between the real and mythical Kringles.

Real Kringle Christmas Shop

There is one such Kringle’s in Branson, Missouri, which is open all year round as a Christmas store with an extensive selection of decorations. This store, which features thousands of ornaments on diverse themes and hand-crafted goods from regional artists, is in line with Chris Carver’s love with Christmas and ornate decorations.

In December, the doors of another Kringle’s, located in Jenks, Oklahoma, only open. Unlike a regular store, Kringle’s Christmas Land offers a distinctive holiday experience to guests with complex visual effects, life-size animated displays, and voice-narrated holiday stories, resulting in a magical winter event. Every December 1st, the lights turn on, captivating viewers until December 31st.

These actual Kringles are nothing like Pepper’s store in the film, despite that. To accentuate Pepper’s establishment’s distinctiveness, Amazon has even developed a Kringle’s Virtual Holiday Shop. Users may explore and purchase from the comfort of their homes with this online experience, losing themselves in the tiny model towns that are evocative of the movie. Easter eggs, sweepstakes, and surprise-and-delight moments from “Candy Cane Lane” can also be found at the virtual shop.

Candy Cane Lane Movie Story

Eddie Murphy’s character Chris Carver sets out to win a decorating competition in order to outdo his neighbors and get out of debt. When he meets Kringle’s and its quirky owner, Pepper (played by the amusing Jillian Bell), his quest takes an unexpected turn. Chris is tricked by Pepper into buying a “can’t miss” Zoetrope tree, which is a centerpiece that honors the melody “The Twelve Days of Christmas.” But there’s a dark twist to the tiny print: Chris has to locate the elusive five gold rings by Christmas Eve, or else his face will be molded into a ceramic figure.

The story’s magical decorations come to life as it progresses, bringing chaos and humor to the scene with frantic French chickens, milking maids, and leaping lords. The brilliant ensemble, which includes Jillian Bell as the insane elf Pepper and Tracee Ellis Ross as Chris’s understanding wife, gives the fanciful story substance while Reginald Hudlin’s direction keeps the story moving. In addition, Nick Offerman, Robin Thede, and Chris Redd provide voiceover roles as the stranded residents of a Christmas town with no way out.

Ultimately, Candy Cane Lane proves to be a lovely addition to Eddie Murphy’s vast repertoire of humorous family films. A remarkable film experience is produced by the combination of the funny world of Kringle’s, friendly competition among neighbors, and holiday magic. The enthralling story smoothly combines actual and imaginary aspects to provide viewers with the ideal way to escape into the holiday mood of Christmas. The film provides a lasting impression of magic, humor, and the ageless joy of the festive season, whether one chooses to explore the actual Kringle’s stores or venture into the virtual one.
