We tried 2 ice cream companies on Main St. in Ouray. Would have to say this one came in second best although it was quite good. We were seeking a hot fudge sundae. They didn't have all the components in stock, but we improvised and had a very tasty dessert.

Ice cream looked old and yucky....we walked out. The owners closed the door in the face of our friends who hadn't made it in yet..and it was 30 minutes before closing time that was posted. We left and went down the street and had great dessert!!

Measly selection and empty shelves. I fear the place is losing money, so they are hesitant to stock anything. Candy was tasteless. Worst I've ever had, and I'm an easy sell on chocolate. Somebody needs to buy the place and put more effort into running it that the current owners are. Don't waste your time.

We went after walking down main street for ice cream. The other ice cream shop had a lot of people, so we decided to try this one. Good selection of ice cream my husband ordered a "single" what he got was a sugar cone with THREE scoops of ice cream! I decided to order a kids size, just two scoops!... More

My boyfriend and I went here to explore and there were hardly any candy choices. They were very rude and starred us down with scowls until we ordered. We got some drinks and chocolate covered cherries but that's it. Turns out looking at the bottles we realized my drink was expired by 7 months and my boyfriends was expired by... More

The place was messy and the candy shelves were empty and dirty! Not sure how this place stays in business. I don't usually like to give a bad review but this place is bad!

This place is hopping all the time! Great home made candies and good Chai. Try the scrap cookies, yummy leftovers!

We were a little disappointed. We had already visited the other ice cream / candy store just a block or two away and this place had a VERY small amount to choose from. The place looked nice and clean just not much to buy. Maybe we just got there at the wrong time. Next time we are in town we... More

We had ice cream from both places in town, and we liked The Candy Co. best. The service is lackluster and the place is kind of sad and dark...but, the ice cream is good.

We stopped in for a quick taste of chocolate while strolling Main street. It is a bit farther down toward the end of Main so not as visible as the other chocolate shop. This location is more laid back than the other chocolate shop but the selection is very good. Chocolate is sold by the pound as are the individual... More
