This was my first time trying this place, it is located right next door to Pancake Pantry. It was crowed the afternoon I went in, but there were plenty of staff to assist, the wait to make my purchase was short. They have a variety of candy, including sugar free selections. You can purchase pre boxed, or from the massive... More

It seams like every other shop on the main strip of Gatlinburg is a candy or fudge shop. But this one stands out. From traditional candy making on old time equipment right in the front window to the classic candy counter with all kinds of old time favorites (they even had Mallow Cups at a reasonable price!). I would visit... More

A must stop. A fairly large candy shop with lots to choose from. Enough employees who are knowledgeable and willing to help out. Watch the taffy being made. Will ship purchases for you.

We always get candy here on our Gatlinburg trips. Been coming for years. Always good service and good choices. Love the non-pareils and sour cherries. Fun to watch the fudge being made.

We visited Gatlinburg the first time over twenty years ago and I always remembered the great dark chocolate turtles I had there which they call "Bears". They are the very best anywhere! The dark chocolate is delicious and there is a good amount of pecans and just enough caramel to hold it together. They are seriously the best anywhere. We... More

We visit Gatlinburg every couple of years and this is always a must stop for us. It is interesting to stop and watch candy being made through the window whether it is taffy or peanut brittle. And, I always have to bring a box of taffy home for all my coworkers.

This candy shop is located on main street and has any possible candy selection you could possibly want. There is a section in the store where you can watch the candy maker do his thing. You can see it from inside the store or from outside looking through the big glass windows. Their fudge is really good but very pricey.... More

Taffy, fudge, lollipops and on-site taffy making. How could this go wrong? Lots of options to buy, smells delicious inside and friendly staff.
