This was such a neat place. We actually came here 2 times because of the Frozen Hot Chocolates (A MUST TRY). Kids can talk to elves on the portable north pole network and get a certificate that shows they are on the good list. they do chestnuts roasting on an open fire every Saturday in Dec. at 6pm. They have... More

This is the second time I've been and still love it. It's not a big place but it has a great selection of candy/gift candy, chocolate, flavored popcorn, gifts and stocking stuffers. And if that's not enough the kids can talk to one of santos elves and get a certificate stating they're on the good list or drink an "Avalanche"... More

We thought this would be just a candy store. We were very surprised it was a little bit more. there was a book room with nostalgic books along with the small jelly belly room and then of course there were throwback candies that you cannot find at you're local candy store. The prices on the souvenirs are also very reasonable.

Got here an hour before closing Sunday. Were only people in the store. Not as close to main drag as other Christmas-related store in Santa Claus. Also a gravel parking lot. Did like the wood carvings, fire pit and Christmas cornhole game, though. Outside of the Santa Hall of Fame and the kids/childrens room, not overly impressed. Wife and I... More

I don't know what I was expecting, but I should have realized it would be so commercial. There was so little history in the Candy Castle I was dissapointed. I knew it was going to be a store catering to kids' sweet tooth, but I expected more of it. It was small, and the vintage candy wasn't really vintage. I've... More

Myself, my mom, my daughter, and 2 nieces all went today on our way out of town. We all loved it! Lots of photo opportunities, of course the kids loved the candy. They were having an awesome sale on Christmas Story merchandise, and Nightmare Before Christmas merchandise, so I scored some of that, all the kids got to pick 5... More

We like this place a lot! It's kinda small and not as much as you'd think but the popcorn and hot chocolate is great and the staff is out of this world friendly! Don't expect a big high priced uptown candy shop because this isn't that. Expect nice friendly faces and some good candy along with a very cute building.... More

Be sure to stop in for a Frozen Hot Chocolate after a long day at Holiday World! We really enjoyed it. They also offer homemade fudges and candies, along with a ton of other candy selections. Children will enjoy Santa's Candy Castle.

The focus in July is on their homemade fudge, frozen hot chocolate, and candies from the past. Don't expect Christmas candy this time of year. I'll admit I was expecting it and was a little disappointed there was none. After all, we were celebrating Christmas in July! The selection of old time candy was pretty big, though, and I was...

We stopped by the castle on May, so it wasn't exactly the height of the x-mas season. It was still fun. They have homemade fudge and candy. They also have a number of novelty items for sale (my favorite was the Christmas Story section). It was fun to drink hot cocoa and walk around. They have about two dozen types... More
