It appeared that the owner was outside given out free samples in order to get you to come in. Very good move and it worked on us.

Very typical of old style candy stores. Big variety to choose from, mostly in large barrels. Pay by weight of what you select.

If you're looking for a specific type of novelty candy, then this is your place! Just be ready to pay for it! There's no steals on candy here, but it will be worth it if you're really craving something. Some of the unique things they have include candy cigarettes and a variety of bulk candies. Beware! Don't purchase too much... More

If one likes candy, Barrels O Candy is the best place in the area to stop to find one's favorite. We like to stop by and with such a big variety. We always seem to find a "new" favorite when we stop by. The service here is good and the prices are fine. Its worth visiting if you like candy... More

Barrels and barrels of 'penny' candy. Too mch to chose from, so we tried to buy two of everything! Not really, but what a treat to get candy to munch on while on vacation. So much fun to look at everything!

The amount of inventory in this store is unreal. Loads of old fashioned candy. Lots of joke gifts too. The staff is very friendly.

It's easy to spend way more than you planned here, especially buying the bulk items. A pound is less than you think! But it's fun to see the different things they offer. Worth visiting.

I always stop by when I'm in Virginia City to get my sweet tooth satiated. Excellent variety of salt water taffy.
