What a cute chocolate candy and ice cream place. Lots of good chocolate varieties. Very friendly people and an ice cream shop too. The prices were just a tad on the higher side but to be expected when it's a local smaller business.

This place has a wide variety of candies and they all taste great! I walked in and wanted to buy EVERYTHING! The candies are kind of pricey, but it is worth it for special occasions.

As I write this I am munching on their fantastic cashew glaze. I've tried others ... nothing compares to Oliver's. During the summer, their ice cream is a wonderful and tasty treat on a hot day. Service is always fast and friendly.

The best chocolate around by far. I take it to 3 states when I visit my grandchildren. My youngest grandson would almost jump out of his high chair when he found out we had brought him Oliver's Chocolate.

Management response:

This is false information! If you do not like our candy then that is your preference and your opinion. We can except a low review score if you honestly do not like our products and you are entitled to your opinion. But, your statement/review is giving false information. We do make our candy and you can see it being made... More

I married an Italian who's family all came from up-state N.Y. In Maine, there's no such thing as "Sponge Candy" so I cannot get it locally. Even though my husband's immediate family moved to M.E, they shipped Oliver's Candies for special occasions. NOTHING compares! If you ever want to treat yourself, try Oliver's Milk Choc. Sponge Candy!

Much larger than most home made candy shops ive been to. Olivers has a great selection of chocolate, rock candy, taffy, etc. Its hard not to want to try a little of everything.

I love the variety. From the candy shoelaces I loved as a kid to the cashew glazed nuts. My family loves stopping here on our way back from Buffalo to Rochester.
