Hands down the best Gummy Bears anywhere. It is so cool to visit the factory and sample all the sweet offerings. If you visit around Christmas you can get a pic with Santa.

It's a very interesting place if you really like candy. I don't think it's super cheap but you can find all kinds of candy there and see a little bit of the factory. Kids will absolutely love it

Wonderful assortment of any/everything you could want in confections. We got there just a FEW minutes before clising. It was very busy, and yet all the young folks waiting on us were very friendly.
