Nice assortment of chocolates and also nuts, which was a welcomed surprise. I'd love to see more variety in the low sugar category. The quality of product seems to be high. If you're driving in yourself, be prepared for detours with the current road constructions.

Neat shop in a not so nice area, several homeless in the area, saw one guy sleeping on their back loading dock. Very friendly staff, always ready to give you a free sample. Great selection and very well stocked. Would go back again.

Palmer’s is a must. Stop for any any Sioux City-ians who are back for a family visit. Twin Bings are a local delicacy that can be bought here and packed for home. One warning, the parking is terrible. Lots of fender benders happen here

We've been to a lot of candy shops, but none with fresher sweets. With such high quality, it's no wonder this place is often packed. Glad we stopped.

I thought this might have more tied into the candy making process given the factory nearby. However, it’s just a store. Part of it is standard stuff you can get anywhere, but the value of this store is the stuff they make, sold by the...More
