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.

Not what you would think it would be. I have been to bigger candy stores in a mall. Candy is kind of expensive, but at least it doesn't cost to enter!

Its a fun cool store but the candy is a little to pricey I mean 31 dollars for 1 1/2 lbs of candy is a little to much if you ask me also they could really add some scales the only scale is at the register and prices nothing has prices on it it must just be the area cause... More

Stopped by here on our annual trip to Gatlinburg, went in with my son, we ended up buying a ton of candy for the grown ups! It was fun but be careful, candy by the pound can add up quickly! Enjoy

Very plain candy store and very expensive. $3 for 1/4 pound (candy gets heavy quick!). Good if you have a specific candy you only want, but otherwise stick to getting it at the grocery store.

I paid $17 for just over a pound of candy (which is less then it sounds). It was also smaller then I expected and the sour gummy candies were all hard.
