Nothing special that you can't get anywhere else. Overpriced and gross. Go to a local place instead cause it'll be cheaper and better quality.

Could have bought big bags at your local Walmart cheaper than this. Spent almost 10$ for a handful of candy....

Skip this! Candy is bulk and everyone is putting hands in, no employees supervising. Save yourself your health and money and go to a gas station!

This is at the end of one of the Ripley attractions and is accessible from the street without having to go through Ripley. It is full of candy. Nothing special and prices are high as expected in a place like this.

Overpriced keep moving. I suggest checking out shops in Baskin Square or maybe the Village. The candy was just really overpriced dr the amount you get compared to surrounding shops.

This is nothing unique or novel. This is normal candy you can get at a normal store only you will pay more money and deal with more people.

Our kids were in CANDY HEAVEN in here! They both filled a bag half full before we blinked! Everything you can dream of in here for a kid to love! Gummy sharks, lego candy blocks, pucker powder, and the list goes on! Not to mention the Jelly Bellies....wow! We loved it!

There's bigger and better candy stores than this. The name is a little misleading cos it's not what it sounds like. Just a ton of candies and both sides of the store and self service.
