“Great fun for us and kids.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

We had a giant kings banana split that took four of us to eat. Watched the taffy being made and bought some of our own. It was a great experience and taffy is amazing!! Definitely a glimpse from the past!

“Watch Candy-Making Up Close!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

The taffy-pulling guy tossed pieces of newly wrapped candies out as you watch. Fun for kids and adults. The candy counter girl was so helpful! She found me sparkly princess jellybeans for my littlest granddaughter who loves the movie Frozen, as well as my family's favorite candy from 50 years ago! They also have sugar-free candy.

“Too many choices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

They had so many candies and ice cream to choose from. The toughest thing was deciding what to get. The were generous with the samples if you asked. Very friendly staff. Would go again.

“YUMMY!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

Great place to take the kids. They were overwhelmed with candy, ice cream and shake options. I truly saw the meaning of "a kid in a candy store!" Ice cream was tasty and the chocolates melted in your mouth. There was so much to choose from it was hard to make a decision

“neat old time fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

we were kinda sad that we missed the taffy pulling since that's why we went. I wish the times that they did was listed on their web site. Other than that we enjoyed our shopping trip there and the kids (including the big man child) had fun picking out goodies we can't find at home. It was very clean and the staff was very nice.
