We have been traveling through Batavia to visit family for years. Oliver's has been a frequent stop. This time we came to Batavia to pick up extra wedding gown fabric (who knows where wedding prep will take you!) so we had plenty of time to spend in this pleasant city. Oliver's is a clean, bright candy store with a nice... More

Oliver's has been a family favorite of ours for more than three decades. Each year we stop in Batavia on the way to grandma's home in Buffalo and stock up on Molly-Pops and other chocolate goodness. Staff is always friendly and the chocolate is always fresh!

They always have a great variety of chocolate to choose from. Also they have an ice cream parlor there! Who doesn't love chocolate?!?!?! A family favorite place to stop and grab a sweet treat to take with you!

It's pricier than your standard off the shelf candy, but come on - You are not buying Hershey's off the shelf here. This is my new go to place for special occasions and Easter. Friendly staff and if they don't have it ask, because they can more than likely make it for you!

I purchased a chocolate cowboy boot filled with nuts, a chocolate fish and a chocolate bear from Oliver's for Easter this year. Very good chocolate and fun with all the different shapes available in the store.

I was passing through Batavia today, and I just had to stop into this incredible store. Oliver's has been a landmark of this town for decades. They make and sell the best chocolates, candies of all kinds, box sets, truffles, and lots more. For people like me, they also produce some wonderful sugar-free varieties that taste almost like the full-carb... More

When visiting Batavia recently, I was taken to Oliver's Candies. WOW! I've never ever seen so many and varied chocolate figures. And in milk, dark and white chocolate. And solid figures and hollow figures. Little ones and HUGE ones. And gift baskets. So many products and lovely staff to help you find what you need. So worth a visit!

Although we have our own very good local chocolatier (Malley’s), while traveling to Batavia a few days prior to Valentine’s Day I decided to give Oliver’s a try for a change. I found that Oliver’s has a large selection of different varieties so one can find just the right combination but prices were generally a couple of dollars higher than... More
