Best place for fudge, candy and Italian ice in OOB, booth locations are great but we usually go the bigger one up at the end of town!

This was a typical candy store to rummage around in, and was quite busy. What stuck out to me was the fudge. The variety of fudge options was amazing, but many of the flavors were unique ones that I don't recall seeing in other fudge...More

Just visited here last week and it was Great! Mrs. Brown "HAPPILY" welcomed us when we walked in, let us know what the set-up was for all the candy, etc .. I'll skip right to the fudge! I think we sampled at least 10 different...More

Stopped here because of reviews on TripAdvisor. They gave us fudge samples when we walked in - surprisingly great choices. Candy that I haven't seen in a long time - well worth the visit. Another visit and we tried the ice cream - great tasting...More

This is a staple when we come to OOB. And the Carmel corn is what we always get. Sometimes some fudge but we’re not eating much of that any more. Anyway... thought the box of Carmel corn would last a couple of days...NOT.

Don't bring the kids. Just kidding. There is candy, fresh made fudge of every variety and popcorn galore. It's hard to choose what you want, luckily you can get a bag and mix it all up.

Staff is nice and there is a big variety of candies. Really colorful but because it's close to the beach, the prices are a little more expensive than in other places less close to all the attractions.

This place is super cute and the service was excellent. There is so much candy. It is a kids dream. However, we got a few very small bags and some chocolate and it was over $40.

Dickinson's Candy has more candy than you can imagine, even some of your childhood memories! Staff was friendly and helpful. Maybe it was a ploy to get us to spend more, but whatever, it worked! The taffy and gummies were soft and fresh even though...More

Candy, popcorn, ice cream, and fudge. What is not to like. They even have old fashioned candy. When you walk in, adulthood deserts you, and the 8 year old with money in his or her pocket comes to the fore. Worthit however.
