We have to stop in here everytime we visit Gatlinburg. I have to have a caramel apple with nuts. They are the best. Taffy is good too.

There is no where else we will buy candy when we visit. We love this place! Always great service, wonderful, truly home made candy and just a part of Gatlinburg’s footprint. I can not say enough about how wonderful this little candy store is!
