Crazy store withmany unusual kinds of chocolate-covered candies, flavored popcorns, salt water taffy and most any candy you can imagine. One of the top 100 Things to Do at the Jersey Shore as seen in my book #100thingsjerseyshore

OMG! Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate! If you are a candy lover, this is the place for you! Chocolate lollipops in every type of form you can imagine from animals to vehicles to whatever you won't find anywhere else! Popcorns, truffles, hard candies, soft candies, creme filled, OMG! Personally, I enjoy the homemade fudges and if you fail to find the maple fudge, you'll know I've been there and bought every last piece of it! This is truly an amazing candy-lovers delight!

Had some great chocolate, prices are a bit high but everything tasted great that we purchased. Even had coffee and some other hot drinks. Would get more again next time in area.

Fun, nostalgic candy shop experience right on the Seaside Boardwalk. The only trouble was choosing a treat (or three) !
