“A MUST STOP!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

We had never heard of this store but it has been around for many years. It is incredible! Definitely the largest candy store we have been to. Pies are made fresh. There are candies available that you haven't seen for years. The assortment of dips and soups is great! The prices are less expensive than what we have paid elsewhere. This is such a fun place! There is a very wide selection of pop that you cannot find anywhere else.

“Fun Place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

Not only candy, but soup mixes, cheese ball mixes, chips, puzzles, pop, preserves, fresh baked pies....We stopped to check out the bacon products! Bacon fudge! Be sure to have lots of cash with you as they don't accept credit cards and it would be very difficult to leave without buying something!

“Rootbeer & Licorice & Apple Pie...Oh my!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Check your sweet tooth at the door and throw the spare tire out of the trunk...you will need all the extra room you can get!

A big yellow quonset hut catches your eye on the side of Hwy 169 on the West side of Jordan, MN. They not only offer great, fresh apple products throughout the season but also the largest selection of candies, soda pops, dips/sauces/salsas and jigsaw puzzles anyone has ever seen.

Prices are a bit high, for example a standard size candy bar is $1.49. Sodas are in the same ballpark. The variety is mindblowing and well worth the visit. Great place to build a gift basket for showers, get wells, care packages, etc..

“Like a kid in a candy store!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

This place is almost hilariously huge! It's a giant lemon-drop shaped building on the side of the road, filled with every kind of candy you can imagine or remember. They have over 100 kinds of licorice! 87 kinds of root beer! Candy from England and from when you were a kid (if you're a grown up now, or even a grandparent-type of grown up). The prices aren't discount prices, but the selection is mind-boggling. We spent almost an hour inside the store, then another hour in the parking lot eating our candy and daring each other to try to funny flavored jelly beans and super sour candies.Good news: bacon gumballs. Bad news: no credit cards, so bring your cash.

“A must-stop on the way to the Cities!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

This big yellow building caught our eye on our annual Christmas trek up to the Twin Cities. Everything you can imagine for your sweet tooth - was so fun looking at all the home-made items from candies, pies, pastries, real maple syrups, variety of sauces, jams & jellies, jerkies & meats, and more. Large variety of jigsaw puzzles too! My favorite thing though, was the HUGE variety of glass-bottled soda pops - I think there were over 30 different rootbeers alone! This was a fun stop for the whole family and is worth stopping in - I can't imagine anyone walking out of here empty-handed!

They do not have a website yet, and they don't accept credit cards. But they do have an ATM inside. One of the reviews said they weren't open in the winter, but we visited December 2012 and they were open.
