Kids will find their favorite candy in seconds and adults will take a walk down memory lane at this candy store! Choose from your typical Wonka candy, Jelly Belly, Pez and Nestle chocolates. Look around to discover candies and chocolates from Europe and Mexico. Prices...More

Great place to pick up some old school candy. Prices are quite high, but to be expected in the busy tourist area.

If you can't find some candy here you need to open your eyes. I got a very generous bag of mixed candy for $10. Not bad price and my son loved it. Go figure! I like that they kept the old candy shop feel for...More

Even if you don't have a sweet tooth you just have to walk into this quaint little shop that is loaded with nostalgic candy bars and a lot of great stuff you can't buy anywhere else.

Lots of unique candy and treats from around the world! Some chocolates I haven't been able to find anywhere else and some old school stuff too. Definitely worth stopping in.

If you like / want candy, this is the place for you... They had a very wide variety of candy, in particular, candy from by-gone eras. I found gum that I like when I was a child back in the 1950's.

Nice store, something fun to do for all ages when in NOTL.. to me the other shops are kind of boring but not this one. If you like candy, chocolate and or retro items then this store is for you.

While on vacation in St Catharines we were looking for PEZ and decided to take a ride to Niagara on the Lake. The area was very cute but we found it to be a bit pricy.

If you are just purchasing pre wrapped candies all is good but over priced. I also purchased almond bark. The sample was loaded with almonds (the bait) the piece I received (the switch) had hardly any almonds. Chocolate terrible. The chocolate haystacks were so greasy...More
