A great place to stop when you’re in Long Grove. They have a wonderful selection of candies. They have old favorites and new items that you can purchase by the pound. Step back in time and enjoy candies from days gone by.

Great candy store, they have just about everything you could want to satisfy your sweet tooth, both new and old candy. I'm a fan of double-dipped chocolate peanuts, and these are the best I've ever had. Pricey at $5.00 per 1/2 pound, but when I'm...More

Too many empty stores. But this one was good! Had a good lunch, and young families were enjoying their lunch.

This place is fantastic. There's a lot of unique and old-fashioned candy in this store. If you can remember a candy from your childhood they probably have it here. It can get crowded on the weekend but the staff is very friendly and helpful. Such...More

Been going here for over 20 years. If you're looking for old time candy, they have it. If you're looking for the today candy they have that too. They're so nice and pricing is good too.

The malted milk balls are hand made and to die for, the amount of sweet choices blows your mind. Walk up and down the aisles of pure temptation, it's a great place to shop.
