While at the museum, the curator suggested we visit the castle down the street. Why not, we were there already. The building was interesting and fun to visit. We were expecting local candies and things to buy inside. It was really just another candy store. Almost everything in the store was something we could get elsewhere. The one thing that... More

We enjoyed the visit to Santa's Candy Castle. Look forward to taking our youngest two grandsons here when they are in for a visit. Many candies that are hard to find in most stores today. Nice selection of inexpensive ornaments, books, fun holiday hats, large pez section. One room with computers for kids to write to Santa, etc. Snack bar... More

A really neat little store that reflects the atmosphere of Santa Clause Land, aka, Holiday World. A great stop.

Great little place. All sorts of candy from Pez to homemade fudge. Kids can "talk" to one of Santa's elves on-line & get a "Good Certificate". Staff is very friendly, and one gentleman sat down with my grandkids & showed them how to make "snow". We had a great time!

This place was not worth it. Not very many different kinds of candy like the website said. We got a chocolate covered carmel thing, it wasn't very good.

Very interesting stop. A lot of very good candy. Also has a very large amount of holiday related books for everyone. Picked up one on the "A Christmas Story" movie and another on lessons learned from the move "A Wonderful Life". A very nice computer learning station for children. A must stop.

Nice little place close to town. Friendly staff and a nice interior. You'll find something you'll like unless you are a crazy person who doesn't like sweets now and then. Get the frozen hot chocolate. You'll be glad you did, and you can thank me by buying me me a pack of the mix they sell and send it to... More
