All kinds, every which way! They have candy from when you were a kid to what they have now. Every kind of salt water taffy to hard candies and more. I was surprised to see that they had some things that I haven't seen since my grandpa gave them out when I was tiny. Go here just to see how... More

A great candy store, there was sooooo much candy in this place. The prices were a little high, but still a treat for both kids and adults

Bring your sweet tooth when you visit! Barrels of taffy, you can select the taffy flavor of your choice, so fresh and flavorful. They offer so many candies that we no longer see, but, bring back childhood memories. Then you can cap off your visit with a hand packed ice cream cone - oh, so good!

We walked into a a shockingly large room with barrels of candy everywhere. It was so decorative and wonderful I felt like I was on a movie set. It was strangely inviting until I remembered my youth spent in the dentists chair. The more we looked the more I wanted to flee my desire. Kate agreed after several wondrous minutes... More

Barrels and barrels of all kinds of candy and it's sold by the half pound not the pound. Huge selection of choices and hard to not walk out with anything. They will let you taste test anything they have.

This is a Never-Miss while in Virginia City. The kids spend almost an hour in here, picking out their candies - and there really are barrels of them - as well as the adults looking over all the vintage candies and toys reminiscent of their childhood. There are gag gifts and funny signs and old-school toys you can find almost... More

I could not help myself, we grabbed a barrel and just kept adding until we got the the check out. We really got it for our granddaughter. She is still eating the candy.
