Wanted to go here because of the add for the homemade fudge. The rest of the place is an overpriced five and dime store. The fudge is good but pricey. They do have a lower sugar fudge. We probably would not go back.

If you are looking for souvenirs this place has about everything you can want. Very similar to the General Store located across the road. We actually purchased peace frogs t-shirts 2for1. Something for tourists to do when in the central business area.

Tons of gifts for everyone on your list here. And when you're done, head to the back and have yourself some delicious ice cream on a freshly made waffle cone. Yummy!!!!!

I would recommend for anyone wanting a souvenir. Replica weapons were a hit with my boys. NFL stuff and many T-shirt’s also. Homemade fudge is also made here.
