I think you'll find EVERY kind of candy in this store. They have a huge variety of chocolates, gummies, sugar free (if you're into that), jelly beans, nuts, mixes, etc. We visit the store about once a month & have NEVER had a bad experience. The candy is always so fresh & tastes great. They are always packed but have... More

First of all, the production was closed to viewing. Secondly, I expected samples, and there were none. Thirdly, I could buy a lot of this candy at a retail store for less money. Outside of the big bag of "gummies" near the door, everything else was overpriced. Seems that they had every kind of candy imaginable...Do they make it all... More

Very Busy Place and we went there on a week day. Our daughter is diabetic and we were some what disappointed in their lack of low carb or carb free candy, practically non existent. We asked them about it and the response was "we don't make it very often". If you like candy though, this is the place to go.

We may have hit this place at the wrong time, but there wasn't any production going on. Even if there was, the "tour" consists of looking through 5 or 6 big windows on a ramp at the back of the store. We were able to sample any of the chocolates that they make and the staff was very nice. We... More

I love coming here & there's so much to choose from. I came to buy my Mom a birthday present in the gift shop, tervis tumbler & water bottle insulator. Also got sugar free candy, bag of fortune cookies & big league gum (my favorite). I couldn't resist the candy dispenser with the little scooper & of course jelly belly... More

Young and old (like me) can spend a lot of time just trying to decide what to buy. Everything chocolate that you could imagine. Prices are great, so stock up and take a load home!

Stopped here before hitting up a local waterpark, had fun peeking through the windows at the factory operations. Staff was very friendly and there's plenty to choose from, candy-wise. The kids were thrilled and had a blast picking and choosing treats to bring with us on our trip. Prices were a bit on the high side but the bulk candy... More
