So worth it!!!
Sep. 2020
We recently got our first order all the way out here to Surf City. I chose 2 day shipping but the cold pack was room temp by time it arrived however all of our candy was in perfect condition, the shipping materials used were top notch, clear to see why the costs are what they are. ($$$ well spent) A common comment that I see is "The shipping was going to cost more than the candy", well... order more candy? The math makes more sense if you're grabbing several items and it's absolutely money well spent. The order was AMAZING, the best candy we've ever had. The polar bear patties are really amazing. Can't wait to try the chocolate drops and pecan caramel turtle thingies in our next order. (just ordered again yesterday lol) We discovered that 2 bags of ribbon candy was too much but we made the kids next door's year by giving it to their family. Thank you guys!!

Great tasting candies, but WAY TOO EXPENSIVE!
Mar. 2019
Well looking at the ingredients of the chocolates, it has "Partially Hydrogenated Oils" which is not a good ingredient. Look it up! Most foods, candies and snacks have it but there are a lot that does not. Read your labels. I can appreciate that they are family owned and candies are hand made which I would then give them 5 stars for that, but between the pricing and ingredients, it's not that great!

Great tasting candy. The price cannot be justified.
Dec. 2019
My partner and I have always seen the odd video on Youtube from these guys and it always looks like a lot of fun. They have an amazing selection of confectionery and it all no doubt tastes amazing and looks it. Presentation cannot be faulted.

What can and absolutely should be faulted is the price they charge for their candy.

We've seen the videos, we see the ingredients that are used and they simply aren't expensive or of the highest possible quality so we don't know why they charge so much for their items.

They don't make their own chocolate, or caramel. A lot of the items are chocolate covered things with a significant markup. I get that they have a popular store made moreso by the youtube channel but seriously. They would have so much more business if they didn't vastly overprice their items.

Still, that all being said, it all tastes and looks great. I can't recommend buying from them online, as they seem to only want to work with premium shipping providers for some reason. Their international shipping is a real head scratcher, like they can't be bothered to look for alternatives when so many reliable ones exist for a fraction of the cost. Also, charging for cooling pads in shipping? $2!! it's like they are determined to make a massive profit on everything they sell.

It’s so expensive!!!
Jan. 2020
So I wanted to buy some candy because I have recently seeing them on YouTube but after I got into the website I wanted the potato chips because they seem really good but they were like $15 for just like 10 chips and like at walmart the whole bag cost around one dollar and the chocolate may cost you around 3 they were so overpriced!!! I would’ve had bought the items if they were cheaper

Hercules chocolate is the best! We have been going there for years. When our children were small they loved visiting the original store and watching how the candy was made. Now we shop there for our grandkids, getting them something special for every holiday! Candy is expensive, but worth every penny!

Absolutely worth a visit!
Aug. 2019
I have made the 3 1/2 hour drive twice just for their candy. This time it was for all the new peanut butter filled ribbon candy and it was worth it. They have the BEST peanut brittle and the chocolate covered is my favorite. The people are always friendly. I will definitely be going back.

Tastes great; expensive
Feb. 2019 • Friends
I recently visited their (fairly) new store. $10 for 4 chocolate covered cherries. Everything was expensive and I think the staff could have been friendlier. It was early on a Saturday morning and they were not crowded, so it wasn't because they were overworked.

Old fashion candy store
Nov. 2018 • Family
It has grown a lot since I brought my kids in to get ribbon candy for the holidays. The store is a lot bigger than when it was a shop in a converted house. The large variety surprised me , but the quality is still outstanding!!! It is so worth stopping in and getting yourself a treat.

Christmas tour

Loved the tour and watching your skilled workers making candy canes by hand. Bought a lot of candy and looking forward to trying them all.
