If you love candy this is the place to go. From the Chocolate fountain to the extensive selection of candy what a trip. They even carry that hard to find item from your past!

Took my kids here and was pleasantly surprised that the prices were so good! The 5 lb bags of gummy goof ups are a great deal too. They are gummy bears that are not “perfect in appearance” but still taste great. I was also impressed...More

Best prices and high quality chocolates, nuts and gummies. If find “ goofs” available then they have even more super prices. $6 for 5 pounds of goof gummies. No taste issues...just poorly formed. Outstanding prices across the board...nuts, gummies, chocolates. Pretty much wholesale pricing not...More

Although the chocolate is great (tge double dipped peanuts and the toffee with sea salt are my personal favorites), the stars are the gummy bears. The flavors are distinct and the texture is so soft and chewy. Many young clerks are there to help. There...More
