We were killing time before we could check in to our lodging, so we drove out here. It's cute, it's quaint, but it's nothing to write home about. If you love candy bark, then this is the place to be. But we're not really candy...More

We loved this shop. Found different types of candy at very reasonable prices. Free popcorn and very friendly staff. Best pecan brittle I've ever had. Good thing I don't live close or I would be there a lot!

Such a neat place off the main roads. I was never a brittle fan until I tried their version. Buttery, salty goodness with peanuts or cashews! And the prices are fair. They also sell some trinkets and other candies, but I always mainline for the...More

This used to be a "must do" whenever I went to Door County, but I may not visit here again. I always got milk chocolate covered cashew brittle, but this time it had only a scant amount of cashews and the brittle was so thick...More

This store is about the history and it's family. Made a purchase for a friend to take back home. The brittle is nicely gift packaged. Their bark is not packaged for gift giving but since I mentioned that I wanted to give the bark as...More

In an out-of-the-way location. Lots of candy, much of it representative of Door County, like the dark chocolate bark with cherries. Because of the prices, we didn't buy as much as I would've liked. We enjoyed the historical pictures and other information about Door County...More

We've stopped here before and had a wonderful and very informative visit. We loved looking around and taste testing the fudge.

Came here after seeing a sign off the highway, this place was a pleasant surprise! There was a lot of variety of pre-packaged candy and homemade treats. The only downfall was another customer having a rather loud, personal cell phone call while she was shopping....More
