We have been coming here for a long. The selection is great and good prices. We enjoy watching the taffy being made. Such a unique shop and great location. They will ship candy to your home. Great employees with wonderful attitudes.

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.

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.

Had all the sweets you'd ever wasn't. Except big pieces of fudge. They only had little pieces you could buy. We went for the taffy bc they make it fresh there. A must stop in Gatlinburg.

So many things to pick from, the pecan brittle was amazing. We especially loved the staff with the thick southern accents. :-)

We go to Ole Smoky everytime we're in Gatlinburg. Lovely staff and a great selection of candies. Kids enjoy watching the taffy being made. We always leave with a box (or two). This visit we also got the special edition taffy flavored with moonshine from Ole Smoky Distillery. So good!
