Cute, old time themed candy store with more choices than I could count. They also carried many old time candy that you don’t see anymore.

This is one of the candy stores in town, not the best one, but still a lot of fun. Dangerous for families with kids.

This place is a dam ripoff! Owner or manager is a total jerk! Way over priced replicated garbage! Guy standing outside the door handing root beer barrel candy to intice you in to buy their over price garbage!

So disappointing! The owner should throw out all of the candy and gum. Instead she sells old candy at top dollar! Don’t waste your money here!

Soooo many different candies! Lots of "old time" candy that you don't see anymore was fun. Barrels after barrels of candy!

We went in there after noticing all the good reviews. But noone bothered to say that the candy is really pricey! Unless you want to buy some candy for nostalgia, as they do have some of the old time candy that I didn't know was...made anymore. It was just pricey IMO. A lot of employees walking around and a lot of customers eating candy from the barrels. Making their own free samples. I guess that is one reason the prices are so high?More

If you are interested in candy, this is the store for you. I lost count of the varieties, however, I found my favourite so I left a very happy camper. Located on the main street and very, very tempting, indeed

Well....maybe not "fun" exactly, but they have more barrels of candy than I've ever seen! Seriously loaded with more flavors of salt water taffy that I thought existed. The very large truffles were actually the best I have ever had. Get your candy fix here.

Starting with the very friendly greeter on the side walk in front of the store to the huge volume of candy and variety inside, fun. As well as candy, there is a large supply of spicy sauces and spices in general from around the country....There is also a large variety of signs covering most tastes, from the funny to the raunchy.More

This is a great little place to stop to put together a bag of hand-picked yummy treats. This is a guaranteed fun stop if you have small children. The staff is very friendly. They have many types of vintage/old style brands of candy as well.

No idea about hours or days open. And gluten free? It's a candy store...old fashioned candy before anyone knew about gluten free....don't know.
