Free samples of the caramels and fudge lure you in. Soo good. 3 types of caramel. All very good. Expensive. It is like walking back in time....to a childhood candy store. Lots of "old school' delights to be found here. Very querky decorations on the walls. It is like a museum. The live rattle snake in the glassed in wall/cage... More

We love this store. Yes it can be pricey but then it is a special vacation treat for us so we just make careful selections and don't go overboard. The kids really enjoy the selections of regular candy and I love the chocolate covered nuts, fudges, and caramels. The caramel pecan loaf is wonderful.

Surrounded by candy, I don't know who was more excited the kids or me!! It is $8 a pound but so good. The taffy and caramels are very fresh. I did not taste or buy fudge but I bet it's just as delicious.

Lot's of fun, great selections but plan on spending some money to make the kids happy. I believe the cost was around $8.00 a pound which adds up fast if you are buying taffy, candy corn, etc.

Typical tourist candy store, with the usual fudge supply (I made the same fudge from a mix in a tourist store at Pike's Peak in Colorado Springs 30 years ago). The rattlesnake made me a little uncomfortable in a store targeted to kids. No tapping on the glass - oh sure. Hope it's a container that's tested often. Also, my... More

We come here every year. My wife gets her bounty of candy. My daughter and her friend do the same with their assortment of chocolate candies, jaw breakers, sour stuff and who knows what. In my opinion, the sweetness on the island belongs with a wide assortment of taffy. Lucky for me I purchased enough to have enough to bring... More

Parking, what parking oh that tiny little spot. They have a snake in a box, I don't like snakes but they should release it somewhere away from town. Candy lots and lots. Smells sooo good. Prices high but that's ok for fudge as it high everywhere and I think it's made in store. The other candy was way to high.... More

Such a fun shop for all ages! Awesome selection of classic candy. The fudge and caramel looked amazing! Everyone in our family got a bag to fill with whatever they wanted -- the kids loved the challenge and the variety. ;)
