They have some great sweet treats available but pricey! Also the ones we bought were the same but tasted very different. It was a little odd. It was also WAY too packed in the store and not a great layout so it was very hard to get around and not bump into people. Some people didn't wear masks so that made me uneasy.

We came upon this shop while visiting Mt. Airey. It has a huge selection of bulk candies and other eats.
it also has a great selection of Mayberry souvenirs that re reasonably priced.
If you want a Mayberry sweatshirt this is the place they were under $30.00
Stop by and get a few pieces of chocolate. I did and i was not disappointed

There are several souvenir places in downtown Mt. Airy which I did not go into. This one called my name because of the fudge. We did not see anyone making it when we visited but they had a large display of many different flavors of fudge, one looking better than the next. We had a difficult time choosing! The fudge comes in little plastic containers with a small plastic knife. There is no weight or ingredients listed on the label, only that it is fresh and a picture and flavor of the fudge. It was $6.99 per container or buy two get one free. We ended up with three, all delicious! The store also had the usual vacation souvenirs plus soaps and specialty jams and sauces, etc. A large store with lots to look and at and entice one!

I go to this store every Christmas to pick up some last minute gifts. This year was no different except that I was being extremely cautious because of covid and had my mask and hand sanitizer. I picked out my gifts and was paying for them when I realized the cashier wasn't wearing a mask so I assumed she had some issues preventing her from wearing one. I asked if they were required to wear masks and she said the owner let them do what they wanted. I was very saddened and disturbed by this because I can't understand a business owner having such a blatant disregard for the safety of the customers and the employees. I will not be returning to this business and I encourage others to refrain from shopping here. The cases of covid and the deaths from covid have accelerated in recent weeks because of this irresponsible behavior.

Cute store. Very pricey. Open til 5, but at 4:56, the door was held open for us to leave. Sorry, just got into town and it’s a rainy afternoon. Thought we’d check out the main drag. Didn’t feel AT ALL welcome plus the $6 bag of popcorn was popped a day before. Wouldn’t go back.

The enticing scent of freshly baked muffins drew my sister and I into this sweet shop. The sincere smile of the friendly man who greeted us was not to be outdone by the deliciousness of the over-sized still warm from the oven orange cranberry muffin. Whole cranberries! Light and fluffy, melt in your mouth goodness! Maybe pick up a few of their pies and some fudge for the ride home. Go!!

Recently visited this store from out of town, as far as merchandise.. they had plenty to choose from. the fudge was okay.. it tasted some what waxy to my husband and i.. everything in this store is very nice, the real problem was the staff.. while i waited in line to check out i witnessed what i would assume was the manager or owner fussing at his fellow employee in front of 10+ other customers... i will not go into detail about some if the things he was saying, but i will say it was enough for me to put my stuff back and leave the store. overall it was extremely unprofessional and foolish behavior of the manager/owner to speak to his employees in this way.. i wouldn't speak to your employees in this type of way, but if you insist on criticising them i would recommend doing it in a more private setting..

Dear Valued Customer, I want to apologize for you overhearing my conversation with someone on the telephone...it turned out to be a solicitation call for some kind of internet website...needless to say we where busy with customers like yourself and I did not feel the telephone call was important enough to leave our customers waiting...I am sorry you overheard my conversation and can only assume you thought I was talking to an employee. Of course I would never talk to a valued team member in that manner and you are right...I should not have lost my cool on the telephone where customers could overhear. I want to sincerely apologize for your experience in our store and would only hope that you would give us another chance to serve you again on your next visit to Mayberry. A FREE pound of fudge, any flavor is waiting for you when you visit us again...hope to see you again soon and GOD BLESS!

The fudge was waxy and tasted more like food coloring than chocolate. The staff are not too nice. Their selections of other goods are very nice, just lots of imported stuff.

This store had all kinds of candy, some homemade, some not. We got the candy that comes from somewhere else and it’s in barrels and you get it by the pound. You have a dozen or so choices to mix. We got about eight good pieces out of about 20. One tasted like soap, my husband said one must hVe been two years old! If we go back we definitely won’t buy the barrel candy.

Hi Betty, Thanks for stopping in our store and visiting downtown Mayberry. We regularly restock our barrel candy and take for granted that our candy supplier ships us the freshest candy on their shelves. If you don't mind, can you list what types, names of, brands of candy that was not up to par and we will immediately replace it with new, making sure that the supplier ships the freshest candy available. We appreciate you letting us know about the problem and together we can fix it so no one else will have the same problem you did. Also, if you would like to give me a call at the store, 1-336-786-6602. and ask for Jerry.....I am one of the owners, I would be glad to refund your money for your purchase and hope if you are in our town in the future you will give us another chance and stop in. Thanks again for visiting us and we hope to hear from you soon with the list of candy we need to replace. Have a great day and GOD BLESS!

Always enjoy stopping in here. I have been made to feel welcome every time I've ever shopped there. I love the variety of items. A must stop in Mt. Airy! Today was fun & festive as Mayberry Days got into full swing. I found some treasures to keep.
