Always saw it and decided to stop. Candy, candy and more candy! Some of the old fashioned candy. You can get carried away, buying it by the pound. I recommend everyone to stop and see for themselves. They also have som souviners to purchase.

Had ridden passed this place several times. Had wants to stop in and check out the variety of candies. Trust me, if they don't have it...it must only exist is regional areas. Selection was amazing. Also homemade fudge as well

We were doing the Route 30 trip and wanted to visit the quirky roadside attractions along the road. Mr Ed’s certainly fits the bill. Definitely worth the stop if you’re in the area.
