Great place to bring visitors in the area. A historical place that is true to their roots. Free samples and you can watch the candy being made. They also carry all your favorites!

We all enjoyed the thousands of vintage candy boxes, glass containers, molds. We got a nice fresh red hot right off the manufacturing line. Everyone was very nice. There were lots of varieties of candy to buy, and great gifts as well. This was well...More

This is a great little candy store. They make their own and sell some other. The ice cream sundae's are huge. This is a small location and can become crowded very quickly. Well worth the stop.

This place is a must see. The store is over 100 years old. The owner told us some history and showed us some pretty neat things. She even gave us some samples of the candy. The kids loved seeing all the different kinds of candy.

Your dad should not have any issue. Even if he did take his wheelchair inside, the display counters allow room to maneuver around and the eating tables would accommodate someone in a wheelchair, if needed.
