Helpful, super-friendly service. Wide selection and very clear labeling. Plenty of choice - dangerous as you pay for by weight and so it's easy to overspend. Nice treat, quite pricey.

We found this place our first year living in Amsterdam, and ended up moving around the corner. This is unrelated to the awesomeness of Candy Freaks, but it is that good. Upon entering you are immediately plied with basically all of the free samples you...More

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
