I tried four different dark chocolate confections and they were all delicious! I could have tried more, but my waistline would not have appreciated it. I would go back if I am back in Boise

Goodys is the best chocolate I’ve ever had. My husband orders me a box every Christmas and has it delivered to Montana. Support this business!

Located in Hyde Park, this wonderful shop has everything. It is about the only place I have been able to fine real licorice. The chocolates are divine. My husband loves the Italian soda's and the coffee's, depending on when we are there. They also have...a wonderful selection of stuffed items. The staff has always been wonderful to visit with, they know their products. I have been driving 300 miles to shop here for many years now. Never disappointed.More

We heard about Goodies and wanted to try it out after our dinner. We walked in about 5 minutes before closing and you could tell they had an attitude when we walked in. We spent close to $100 and still got a lot of dirty...looks. I got a hot fudge sundae. When I got my sundae, the hot fudge was to hard, I could not eat it. I try to cut off chunks with my plastic spoon, but that didn't work. So basically I had vanilla ice cream. Not too impressed. One other person got the turtle sundae and had the same issue. I am sure there are a lot better places for ice cream in Boise and I suggest you frequent them.More

Awesome candy and ice cream shop in Hyde Park. They have a ton of options for candy ( chocolate and other), ice cream, popcorn, etc. They also have a bunch of ice cream floats and sundaes. Everything either was delicious or looked delicious. Prices are...a little high, but I think that's typical of a specialty candy shop lime this.More

We ventured to Goody's from our airBnB as it was walking distance. Goody's is popular with the locals. They have sweets gator plus stuffed animals and, of course, ice cream. There is seating inside and out. At times the line can get quite long to...get your order in (which we witnessed as we enjoyed our choice). We split a Banana Split and it hit the spot. The size of the Banana Split was small in our opinion compared to our favorite place. Go if you have the chance; it gets you into a different neighborhood plus you get to go to a local favorite,More

A good old-fashioned candy store. Fresh dipped ice cream cones the size of softballs, delicious carmel corn. Real lemon drops. Amazing chocolates. I could go on, but just go. In the heart of Hyde Park.

Always a delight when we visit Boise’s North End. First we walk up and down N 13th St, then settle into Goody’s for ice cream and coffee, and to look over our purchases!

This is one of what will have to be two reviews because I went there for candy and will definitely have to go back for ice cream. I had just eaten dinner and was too full and so got candy to go. The smell as...you enter is very tantalizing!!! I was greeted as I walked in the door very pleasantly and was full of questions about the candy and the young lady answered them all very patiently. I ordered three pieces and ate them later over a course of a couple of days and was very happy with the texture and the flavor. It is always a treat to find good chocolates. I will be going back for sure. This is a place you should definitely stop at to enjoy the smells, the friendliness and the treats. There are also cute stuffed animals as you walk in the door.More

We are always looking for great ice cream places and Goody’s did not disappoint. Staff was very friendly and we liked that they brought the ice cream out to us after we ordered and paid - and brought glasses of water!

We stopped in for a root beer float. This is a really cute candy/coffee/ice cream store that smells delicious as soon as you walk in. They do root beer floats the old-fashioned way—with syrup, soda water and ice cream. It was really good. There’s lots...of seating inside and out. The servers are friendly and efficient.More
