Watch what you put in a bag. It adds up quick. The price is clearly marked at 3.50 per 1/4 pound. There is a large selection of candy.

Kids had fun choseing their candy, its sold by weight so the heavier the candy the pricier it is. After you reach a pound you get a stuffed animal. Is suggest getting candies you e haven't had in a long time,or never tried.

Nothing special that you can't get anywhere else. Overpriced and gross. Go to a local place instead cause it'll be cheaper and better quality.

Could have bought big bags at your local Walmart cheaper than this. Spent almost 10$ for a handful of candy....

Skip this! Candy is bulk and everyone is putting hands in, no employees supervising. Save yourself your health and money and go to a gas station!
