I was deeply saddened to learn the massive rattlesnake which had lived most of his life in the store had passed on. He was certainly worth the trip. All the candy is good but I miss some of the old-fashioned candy that seems to have...More

If you like your candy with a side of racist bumper stickers and ads then this is the place for you. I had to explain to my 6 year old why these things were hanging in a candy store. No thanks.

Lots of variety, my kids were THRILLED. We stocked up one afternoon after exhausting our selves at the beach. It was the perfect treat. It was a little pricey, but nothing that would keep us from purchasing it.

This was a fun, old-fashioned, candy station that you pay for by weight. Self serve. There is also homemade sweets and you can try samples. It was cool to see the candy of my day mixed in with the kids favorite candy of today.

Love this place. Always visit when we come to Port A. Great selection of candies. Kind of pricey. Probably best to give the kids a price limit. Always loved visiting the rattlesnake they had, but this visit, found him stuffed😢 He passed in Dec 2016....More
