Palmer Candy is like walking back into time with a great selection of candy by the piece, candy bars from all over, nuts, and a gourmet food section featuring everything from Pastas to crackers, to flavorings. The staff is always very friendly and the facility is fun. There is even a section that shows how the Palmer's famous Bing Bars... More

Best place to get chocolate in town. Always stop to purchase twin bings. Love the choices they offer. They have bins and you can choose the amount you wish to purchase. Love this place

There is a huge variety of candy available here - lots of classics and some crazier things. Great place to buy candy in bulk. Also on display is some old machinery that they used to use in the factory. Cool to see the changes that have been made.

Nice little shop with a large selection of candy from chocolates to gummys. Not everything is made in the area or by Palmer Candy. Limited parking on the corner of the street, quick trip from the Hard Rock Casino.

Palmer Candy is a fun place to visit for those living in or out of town. They have the coolest Gourmet Gift Shop around. As for their candy, it is always fresh and the store clerks are very helpful. The parking is a little tricky, though. Maybe someday they'll find a way to expand it.

Palmer candy shop is a neat place to stop for a quick experience. They have a multitude of candy for purchase as well as old candy making machinery on display. I recommend grabbing a Twin Bing and a Sioux City Sarsaparilla to experience some of the best of Sioux City-made goods. Then take a nice walk or bike ride along... More

I went to the Wesley Parkway location. It's a bit of a walk but it sits facing a main road and it's a very big building. It is not far from the Hard Rock casino just walk around the back of it by the outdoor park. Be careful crossing the streets as traffic comes from main roads and highway 29.... More

We stopped here on our way to visit relatives. Very limited parking and on a busy intersection. Some of the more popular candies were gone. Some of the candy for sale would have been less expensive if you purchased in a grocery store.

This is a good stop if your in the area plenty to chose from if you like sweets it's worth a half hour. I wouldn't drive miles to get here but it's a nice stop
