As we walked by here the kids loved it because all they saw was CANDY. So we let them each fill up a bag and wow when you checked out three bags ended up costing you $45. Ouch...... My husband read the sign wrong on the wall. Needless to say, next time they want candy we will go to a... More

While I'll admit this is Candy Heaven, it was extremely over-priced. I spent around $12 on a bag of gummies that I could've gotten for a couple dollars at any supermarket. I was bummed that there wasn't much "specialty" candy. The candies that were specialty were too expensive to even grab.You'll just be paying for the experience and the name.... More

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!

Overpriced keep moving. I suggest checking out shops in Baskin Square or maybe the Village. The candy was just really overpriced dr the amount you get compared to surrounding shops.

This is nothing unique or novel. This is normal candy you can get at a normal store only you will pay more money and deal with more people.

Our kids were in CANDY HEAVEN in here! They both filled a bag half full before we blinked! Everything you can dream of in here for a kid to love! Gummy sharks, lego candy blocks, pucker powder, and the list goes on! Not to mention the Jelly Bellies....wow! We loved it!
