This place has lots of penny-style candy. You can buy it by the piece or by the pound. Also jelly bellys, handmade chocolate and fudge. They also have a great selection of jigsaw puzzles. Very pleasant staff.

We stopped in to see what they offered. Lots of neat candies. All the hard to find candy and all the homemade candy was amazing. We bought several different kinds. The milk balls were tasty. Would definitely go back.

Nothing spectacular here. Old fashioned candy but just like any tourist town that has a candy store. Got a few items but if short on time skip this one.
