We stopped in to check it out. Most of the candy is candy that is made by other vendors- i.e. Sprees, M&Ms, gummies. They do offer some homemade chocolates and carmel(s). Most candies are in open bins and you use a small bag and put what you want in the bag. Personally, I was kind of grossed out by the... More

Although the different types offered is limited (gum, gummy bears, sour type, licorice, fudge, etc) there are several varies & flavours to each. Even a few combinations for candy corn that I could not find in a store. I wasn't sure that some would work, but if they were not... More

Free samples of the caramels and fudge lure you in. Soo good. 3 types of caramel. All very good. Expensive. It is like walking back in time....to a childhood candy store. Lots of "old school' delights to be found here. Very querky decorations on the walls. It is like a museum. The live rattle snake in the glassed in wall/cage... More

We love this store. Yes it can be pricey but then it is a special vacation treat for us so we just make careful selections and don't go overboard. The kids really enjoy the selections of regular candy and I love the chocolate covered nuts, fudges, and caramels. The caramel pecan loaf is wonderful.

Surrounded by candy, I don't know who was more excited the kids or me!! It is $8 a pound but so good. The taffy and caramels are very fresh. I did not taste or buy fudge but I bet it's just as delicious.
