I am celiac. Sad to post a negative review, but I don’t want this to happen to anyone else. Upon travelling home from Waterton I called the Candy Store in Nanton to ask if they had GF ice cream. They said yes and then I asked if I could have a fresh scoop from a new tub in the back and they said yes. I was delighted!

I arrived at the ice cream shop in the candy store and was provided a list of GF ice creams. I then picked out some options and the girl went to the back to get me a scoop. A couple minutes later a man (manager maybe?) came out and said “what can I get for you?” And I asked him for the same options from the back. He then said “ya, we’re not going to do that for you…you see, I’m not willing to ruin that really nice seal on the ice cream in the back.” If the manager was kind about it I may have just let it be, but the way he spoke to me was demeaning and rude. I then proceeded to tell him that I had called ahead of time and he then interrupted me in my words twice. He told me that his staff wouldn’t say that on the phone and that it was a miscommunication on my part.

I have NEVER experienced someone so rude and demeaning in my life. I will never walk into that shop again or give them my money. Please do not give people like this guy your business.

Visited Nanton midweek in July and popped in here to look at the antiques and collectables. They had some really interesting things and we enjoyed looking around this part of the shop.
There are so many sweets and chocolate it’s hard to choose.
We also noticed they had a section for sugar free sweets which was great.
We purchased a few things to take home.
Great selection of ice cream too

Be prepared for the excitement of kids and adults alike. So much excitement and many many starry eyes. Staff were busy, but were helpful and polite. Was great watching our young grandchildren with big smiles and starry eyes. Is very busy . :)

Lot's of unique candy and antiques. Was very surprised to see the store selling expired chocolate bars on discount for the same price you can buy them normally and not expired. Icecream portions small and price high.

This place is like a walk back to your childhood. They have all the old favorites form years gone by. If they don't have it it is likely you will never see that candy again.

My only regret is that they included an antique store as well! If it was kept to a Candy store guests would not be tripping over each other.

We were passing through the town and decided to make a pit stop to this very popular tourist attraction.

The candy selection was absolutely incredible! Obviously prices may be a little higher due to the fact it’s probably costly to get those sent in to their location, but honestly for what it’s worth it gives you so many options to try something new or remember the old days.

Antique wise we picked up a few things, actually thought the prices were fair for what we picked up, but we could see larger price tags on a few more hard to find items so maybe there is an option to barter? Not sure.

All in all it was a great place to stop at, lots of candy, collectibles and ice cream!

Also the staff were very kind and let us roam for an hour admiring everything we saw.

Stopped in Nanton for lunch and decided to check out the candy store. My kids loved the experience of bulk candy and I enjoyed looking at all the candy from my childhood. My son, a belt buckle collector, found some neat finds in the antique section. It is pricey but it's more the experience than the product.
