If you love candy, this is the place to go. Very clean and well organized. Saw candy in there I haven't seen since a kid. Brought back some memories.

Nice unique candy shop with a wide variety of candy. From older candy I remember as a child to current and home made candies.

The best part of the trip. The little ones enjoyed all the different types of candy. They choose Pez from the many hundreds of Pez dispensers.

This place has every type of candy you could imagine. My daughter loved it and it even has yummy stuff for adults! Reasonable prices. I think the most popular thing for us was the yucky flavored jelly beans. It's kinda made into a game where you spin the wheel to see if you get a yummy flavor or a yucky... More

I expected an actual place where candy is made and maybe see something. This place just sells prepackaged items. You can find the same assortment of candy at Cracker Barrel. However, they do have the iced hot chocolate which was worth it.

If you are looking for a sweet treat, this is definitely the stop! The building is super cute, offering some fun photo opps outside. Inside is a candy wonderland that kids will certainly adore. In addition to a huge selection of candy, you'll find Christmas-themed stocking stuffers and toys, specialty popcorn, and our favorite - and amazing frozen hot chocolate... More

A bit run down looking on the outside. There's nothing here that you can't find in your basic candy store in the mall. Not impressed.

We almost didn't go in because it didn't look like they were open. So glad that we did. They had all sorts of candy including flavored popcorn and taffy. If you like sweets, you better stop by and grab some fudge. It was delicious!

Thank laholaday
