“Great and Scenic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

Great variety of candy, sides, and homemade treats. Their Carmel is "called good" for a reason. If they happen to have Tiger Butter, then you are in for a real treat.

“Uncovered candy bins”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

This could be a great place if they would cover their candy bins. Food should not be exposed to dust and dirt. Look above some of the bins. Have they ever dusted? If so where would the dust end up?

The bins are low and children can reach in before mom makes them let go and leave that handful in the bin.

There are huge plastic bags of bulk candy out by the bins. That takes some of the novelty of a candy store away. They should use their storage room not the retail space.

My opinion is that if the customer area is not kept sanitized then the behind the scenes kitchen area could be worst.

I will say it is better than their old location. And fun to look only.

“You MUST check this place out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

You've got to get or sample some of their "good" candy. It is amazing. My son and I stopped in for a little after dinner sweet and we found lots and lots of candy to choose from.

“Fun, Energetic Store”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

Nice candy store in Port Aransas with every candy you can think of. We are a gummy loving family so we were in Heaven. Definitely worth a stop if you need to cater to a sweet tooth.
