Great store, smells delicious, and very quirky! Friendly staff and loads and loads of candy!! Old school candy galore....candy cigs, honey sticks, the wax coke bottle thingys, and CHOCOLATE!! The candied pecans...to die for!!! Loved it, pricey but worth it and fun to see all the stuff they have.

This place had a good selection of candy. Pricey of course. But the best thing was the absolute amount of history a person could find inside. When I say history found inside, I am referring more to lots of odds and ends, and personal items than span several family generations for the average person. I found items being used as... More

It smells great in here, and I loved that the staff offered free samples of anything you were thinking of buying. The candy is homemade and a fun treat for the car ride home from the beach. What I didn't really like or get was the rattlesnake in an aquarium in the corner. I could see that it was a... More

We love this candy store! Fun for the kids and adults. Little pricey but fun for vacation. Bothers me that containers are open at kids level. Kind of unsanitary but that is half the enjoyment of visiting for kids. I just hope parents watch their children as closely as I do. We've been two years in a row and will... More

Great variety of candy, sides, and homemade treats. Their Carmel is "called good" for a reason. If they happen to have Tiger Butter, then you are in for a real treat.

This could be a great place if they would cover their candy bins. Food should not be exposed to dust and dirt. Look above some of the bins. Have they ever dusted? If so where would the dust end up? The bins are low and children can reach in before mom makes them let go and leave that handful in... More

You've got to get or sample some of their "good" candy. It is amazing. My son and I stopped in for a little after dinner sweet and we found lots and lots of candy to choose from.

Nice candy store in Port Aransas with every candy you can think of. We are a gummy loving family so we were in Heaven. Definitely worth a stop if you need to cater to a sweet tooth.
