The store had some unique finds. The lady who greeted us when entering made the visit great. Anyone want to try beanboozled??? The price is exactly what you find at any candy store when paying by weight.

We stumbled on this place and fell in love! We love the variety of different candies and the memories some of the help us relive. You have to watch yourself or you will over stuff the basket and pay a whole lot as it is by the pound for lots of their candy. But we love to pick up a... More

Love this candy store!! Visited the area past two weekends and had to go to this store! Love the baskets and baskets of loose candies you can choose! Be careful you'll be very sweet! The staff is friendly and remembers a sweet tooth like me! Lol!

My husband and I enjoyed finding both sweet and Splenda-sweetened treats! Customer service was friendly, too! We would love to return for rare and wonderful treats!

If you like Salt Water Taffy definitely stop into This cute little shop! It is a little pricey at $8.99/lb but worth it. Some examples of flavors: hot chocolate, Apple pie, buttered popcorn, vanilla cupcake, key lime pie, and lemon meringue- all equally delicious!!

Huge selection of salt water taffy, which I never had before now. Oh my goodness, it's wonderful. The lady working that day (Thanksgiving day) was just so friendly and helpful. I was able to also find candy I hadn't seen since I was a kid. I would definitely go back.

There are a few common things in here but we did find harder to find candies as well. It's worth stopping by. We found ice cube chocolate, my mom's favorite from childhood, and we hadn't seen those in years.

Yes, it is a bit overpriced. Yes, there are a lot of items one would probably consider common. However, they have plenty of nostalgic choices. Plus, who doesn't enjoy filling a basket with 30 different types of candy?
