Apothecary for Kids and Candy
Apr 2021
The candy was used for decorations. It was dreamy and sweet and wonderful. Like a fantasy that jumped out of a fairy tale book. It was clean and well organized. There were interesting imported candies as well as the over priced confections that you could find at a gas station. Even if you don't like candy, just go in for the experience.

Candy for the eye and the palate!
Mar 2021
I loved this shop! I read a review that the proprietor was not friendly...I found the opposite to be true. She was helpful but did not hover. She answered questions and was very pleasant. The prices were relatively high but her displays and selection of Easter candies were amazing. I was able to choose a few pieces from every bin to make a nice assortment. I didn't have to go to a chain store and buy 15 bags of candy to assemble an assortment and most of the items aren't even found at the big box stores mentioned by another reviewer. Thank goodness there are still people willing to create beauty and aesthetically pleasing spaces for shopping. It would be a sad day if our only choices were big box stores. I recommend this store for its beauty and its delicious candies.

I wanted to love it...
Sep 2018
I couldn’t wait to try Edie Bees. I discovered them while reading about a Couples package offered at Dogish Inn. Being a person who is always on the hunt for the best confections, I set my GPS to the address and couldn’t wait to give my credit card a workout. The store was adorable and something you could easily find in NYC or another posh city.
Pros:
The organization of the store is a person with OCD’s dream. Glass apothecary jars line the walls and tower from floor to ceiling arranged by color. Homemade, impeccably decorated chocolates fill the glass case towards the back of the store.
Cons:
Not sure if she was the owner, manager or a salesperson, but the woman behind the counter was not at all personable. Contrary to the genuine greetings we received from numerous properietors on Second Avenue or Lewes local gentry, I felt ignored. As I entered the shop, a small group exited leaving me the only patron inside. I’ve never been to Edie Bees before, so I wasn’t sure how to go about accessing the candy. It wasn’t until I asked, “Excuse me. Stupid question, but do we just help ourselves?” I received a simple “ yes” without so much as a glance up from whatever she was doing at the counter. Scanning the store for some other clues, I noticed a few stations along the walls that contained paper bags, tongs and scoops. Equipping myself with tongs, I helped myself to some jellied fruit slices as this was something I was craving. I selected pear, coconut and pineapple flavors. I also asked for two chocolate peanut butter cups from behind the counter in addition to some marked down honey bee chocolates filled with honey and caramel (they expired the following day) I’m not expecting to have a full blown conversation about my life story, but there was no interaction between buyer and seller. She was just a bit on the cool side for me.

When I arrived home, I sampled the fruit slices and the pear was very wet and slimy. Add that to the fact they were all cut at various degrees of thickness, it made for quite an unpleasant texture. The pear and pineapple slices had this problem; not the coconut.

The peanut butter cups were eaten by my husband who stated they were “good” when asked. He is a loyal fan of peanut butter cups sold by a chocolatier in Doylestown, PA. This is not a fault of Edie Bees, just his personal preference.

I will definitely visit the store again to give it another chance because I really wanted to love it. I will be back in November and hopefully will receive friendlier customer service this time around or I might just walk out and choose to give me business elsewhere.

Beautiful store

This store is a step back in time! Walls lined almost floor to ceiling with jar after jar of candy arranged by color. Just gorgeous! Of course, that type of ambiance also commands a premium price, so choose your pieces carefully if you are on a budget.

Unforgettable Candy
Aug 2017 • Couples
My wife and I visited Lewis almost 2 years ago. On our first evening, we stopped at Edie Bees for a sweet treat for desert. My wife loves chocolate and got the turtles. She loved it so much we went back the next night for another treat. And she still talks about the turtles. For her birthday, I am definitely going to see if Edie Bees will ship.

Great place!
Aug 2017
Absolutely wonderful! Me and my friend were hoping to just grab some sweets but what we got was so much better! The atmosphere is precious, the candy has great pricing and the staff was so kind. We accidentally stayed past closing due to how overwhelmed we were by all the options and Abigal was so sweet, let us complete our shopping, and even took our picture. Made my night!

Wonderful vintage looking candy shop. All the candy is in glass containers. Great place to take your kids, but keep an eye on them- Lots of stuff with in reach of little hands. Also great place to get fancy candy for a date.

If You like sweets...
Aug 2016
This place has really good quality candy. The place is very appealing (eye candy:-)
There are some issues though. The candy jars are very heavy and are stacked high on shelves. The lids are also heavy. I don't know if anyone has dropped them, but it could be dangerous. Also, when the afternoon sun comes in, it heats up the candy, some of which is chocolate or honey.

That aside, go and enjoy
