Price range: US$1 - US$23
Restaurant details
Reviewed May 12, 2018

Date of Visit: April 2018

I love the colour scheme and the commitment to the retro candy shoppe theme that they have going.
There are many amazing candies, treats, and sweet options.
You will find vintage style candy, as well as current candies. Fudge, brittles, sponge toffee, and much more.
They have ice cream in the summer which I believe is Kawartha Dairy (a very good quality ice cream).

Like most candy stores: it is a little crowded. They have to pack a lot of items into a small space to maximize their retail. can be a challenge to manoeuvre between the shelves when it is busy.

Prices are very reasonable, and typical for a candy store - no shocks here.
On a nice day, it would be good to sit outside and enjoy your ice cream or candy on the bench and watch the people.

Fun place to visit in Guelph.

Lots of interesting, quality candy to choose from (European, Japanese, novelty items) and delicious, local fudge. Clean, well organized store with excellent customer service. Prices a little on the high side, but worth it.

Cute little candy and ice cream shop. As soon as you walk in you start to smile as you are surrounded by candy and treats. And not just your normal chips and candy bars...the candy brings you back to your childhood. Candy for the young and old.

The hardest part of the experience is deciding what to buy.

Clean store and staff is always friendly. Love the little hats.

Awesome place to stop when your downtown.

This little shop is chock full of goodies, and the piece de resistance are the tubs of Kawartha ice cream. The soda jerk dresses for the part, and he is plenty generous with the servings.
There is a cute little patio where you can watch the kids in the splash pad across the street, and the kids just love it here.
If they aren't into ice cream, well then they can root through all the different types of candy on display. This is a cute little shop, and it deserves a visit, but do take the kids. It's one of those kid places that just seem to be magical, and can turn a rainy day into a sunny one with one scoop.

Excellent location on Carden Street, fits nicely with the redone street. Very cute inside and lots of candy to choose from. Nice that they have some different candies that you won't find at the corner store.

Ice cream selection is good too.

Workers little paper hats are perfect.

Great little candy shop in the downtown core. A must stop if your downtown walking around.
