The boys got taffy samples her from a friendly worker. I bought milk chocolate covered pineapple. Delicious! They have a little wood cut out beside/behind the story where a couple of people can put there heads in for a picture.

I cannot say enough how much I love Ole Smoky Candy Kitchen. I grew up coming here with my family every summer. This place is filled with so many good memories. The caramel apples, brown bears, and taffy are still my favorite treats. ❤

Whenever in Gatlinburg this is a must stop for us. Best variety of candies we have found in town. Never leave without a large box of taffy, so many great flavors! Staff is super friendly and go out of their way to accommodate.

Customer Service was awesome, taffy was good but the vanilla buttercreams were gross. I know we are comparing to fanny mae however the milk chocolate did not really taste that good nor the inside. Everyone has their own taste though. I have been to better tasting chocolate shops before. Sorry, but like I said taffy was good and customer service was excellent.

My husband and I bought three boxes of their salt water taffy. One was for us, and the other two were gifts. We opened ours and tried several pieces of taffy, but they all were super hard and old-tasting. We thought, it must not be fresh. So I went to return the two unopened boxes. I told the lady working the cash register that these boxes didn't seem fresh. She immediately got angry saying I was wrong and that they had to be fresh. She went on to tell me how they had been in business for years and that there was no way the taffy was old. Another worker heard the commotion and came up and gladly accepted my return and gave me cash but the older lady kept fuming. I finally said, I am not trying to insult you, I just don't think this taffy is good. I almost cried because she was so rude to me. I am giving them 1 star for their stale taffy and horrible customer service. Maybe it was fresh taffy, but if so, I don't like their recipe and they don't need to make someone feel bad for not liking it. Just take my return without berating me.

This place is not the place it used to be. This place has always been a popular and "original" candy kitchen and NOT a restaurant. The staff was not friendly, the prices were steep and the staff was not in a hurry to wait on the customers in the store. I simply asked for my purchase in a small box because I was traveling and there was serious attitude. It was further attitude when she figured out I was paying with my card and she had to walk away from the cash register area to run the card. There are two locations and this was the ORIGINAL location, not the newer location down by the Village. I was seriously disappointed. The candy is good, it is pricey, and the attitude and lack of customer service is uncalled for......Go to Kilwins if you are going for anything other than taffy!

We love this candy store. We got the caramels and peanut butter/chocolate fudge. They never disappoint us. Candy is always delicious!

Great place, great feeling, great candy selection. Would recommend to anyone, they are always accommodating not social distanced but still felt safe.

I remember visiting the first time many many years ago. Like, 50 years ago. I was hooked. Every time we go back to Gatlinburg, this is a MUST visit. I bring extra home with me to last me a few months. It's delicious. Lots of variety makes it even better.

My family has been coming here since before I was born and for good reason! The staff is helpful, the selection is extensive, and the candy is delicious (and reasonably priced). Great service, candy, and prices! It's a win all around.
