This giant yellow quonset hut is completely FULL of awesome treats! Of course you'll find all kinds of root beer and soda, but also pop corn, bread mixes, candy of a jillion sorts, maple syrup, cook books, postcards, etc., etc. Plan to spend 30-60 minutes to browse, even if you don't spend a dime. It is super fun. This store... More

This was our first pit-stop after leaving the Cities and heading for the Black Hills. It was very fun, but we didn't have a lot of time since our journey was just beginning...you could spend a LOT of time here to really look around. Kids loved it! Remember they only take cash...thankfully I was prepared for this...the reason I gave... More

Took my niece and nephew to visit the Largest Candy Store. There is an insane amount of candy and sodas. Fun to see things I've either never seen before or haven't seen in some time. The apple pies looked scrumptious as well! Would come again!

If you like salt water taffy or licorice this place can't be beat. Otherwise it's repetitive, with lots of novelty sodas and candies that are attached to cheap plastic toys like fans, cars, guns, etc. We had hoped to find lots of unique and interesting imported candy and regional specialties, like Moxie, Cheerwine, and Cactus Cooler. Place was BUSY!

The best way to describe this place is to think of the ok movie that you end up renting thankful that you didn't spend the dough to go to it in the theater. If you are driving up or close in general then stop. Don't expect more then that and you won't be disappointed. Candy...yes they have it, but that... More

This place is amazing. We all enjoyed it but watch out candy and other goodies can add up quick. We all picked out a cold pop and sat outside and drank them. All kids of whatever you want - Especially the taffy!! Kids love it.

This store is fun to visit and browse for every kind of candy you could imagine. I always select several brands of their large selection of root beer. Store has expanded in last year so it helps spread out the crowds that are usually there. But make sure you check your receipt before you leave. They don't scan in the... More

This is such an amazing place to visit! They have so much more than just candy! There are homemade pies, cookies and fudge. We bought a apple crisp pie and it was amazing! There is also bread mixes, bloody mary mix, BBQ sauce, soup mixes, pasta, honey, maple syrup, chips, puzzles and of course, candy. They also have meat sticks,... More

I visited Minnesota's largest candy store yesterday with my family and needless to say it was AWESOME. The exterior look of the store is so unique; a yellow barn-looking place with cute yellow fencing stretching a mile long, you can't miss it! And inside, HUNDREDS of various candies, some old ones that I remember having when I was growing up!... More

The store has gotten bigger this year, with the addition of a huge lofted room on the backside of the original building (see pictures), featuring a Tardis! As always, we love getting "real Dr. Pepper" (with cane sugar in a glass bottle), Cadbury chocolates from the UK, Kinder Chocolat from Germany ... and we always find something new and delicious!
