Great selection, friendly staff. Picked up some old time hard to find items. This place makes you feel like a kid again. Great memories!

Powells recently redid the Healdsburg store, trying to be more of .. general store atmosphere, and though they've retained some of the sweets, the entire vibe of the place is changed completely and I miss the classic candy store chaos they had before.

I used to live in Windsor, CA and saw this "new" company open up on the Windsor Green that harkened back to the candy stores of days gone by--they stocked everything you EVER remember having as a kid (that was still being made, anyway), and offered fabulous gelato and gourmet chocolates to boot! Since opening this store in 2003 (wow,... More

I wandered in here because I love salt water taffy. They didn't have as many flavours as I'd have liked, but there were enough to keep me happy. I especially loved their dark chocolate gelato that they serve with a tall, thin cookie. The service was good too. I'll definitely be back.

The ice cream looks tasty, but it's overly sweet. You can buy their ice cream in the freezer section at Big John's Market for far less. What is the point of this place?

We were pleasantly surprised to find this place still open after dinner (they don't close until 9pm). The hand-dipped candies, chocolates, and truffle case is almost overwhelming! We loved the caramel truffle, chocolate covered smore and the chocolate covered peanut butter cup. We wouold have loved to have tried a lot more!

The gelato is extraordinary with mouth-watering flavors like honey-lavender. Tastes like you just stepped into Provence! Probably among the best sweet shops anywhere. The sister shop in Windsor, CA is also very good but slightly below the standard of the Healdsburg store.

It's a candy store. Not much more to say, except that they didn't have spice drops. They did have Flicks, though. Lots of candy. There are other Powell's in different towns, like Chico, but they all have different owners and so carry different products. If you have a sweet tooth, you'll like this place. If you don't, why are you... More
