My daughter loves candy shops when we go on vacations. This seemed overpriced and I didn't find it that unique at all. My daughter didn't even want to buy anything.

I'm sorry to hear that you were not impressed with our shop. Is there something in particular that you and your daughter were looking for or would suggest we carry? We do currently offer over 800 different candy and chocolate items, but we are always willing to carry more if you have any suggestions for something unique. More

Lots of candy types and really good fudge. Got the chocolate cheesecake and wish I could get more. It was super hot and humid though on the day we went and we still had to take the ferry back to the mainland so I didn't want to get much chocolate.

Thank you for your visit and review. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed the fudge. We are open until the end of October so if you visit during cooler weather, we will still have fudge! More

We wanted good ice cream and the cute storefront of The Candy Bar caught our eye. The front part of the store is all the candy you could imagine, especially from my youth. The ice cream was served in a separate entrance and only has a few booths. They serve Toft's ice cream, made in Sandusky. The flavors we tried... More

A decent selection of candy, but the fudge selection is huge. A nice diversion from the bar and restaurant scene on the island. Next to the carousel.

Lots of stock and unique choices. Fudge looked great though didn't try it. There's also an ice cream shop in the back. You'll find candy here you'll remember from your childhood (I'm 40 something).

This is a candy store that sells everything new, retro or weird/different that you can't buy anywhere else. Some different candy we bought were tobasco flavored chocolate, root beer Mike and Ike's, and an apple flavored sucker with real ants. My son said they sold other insect candy with worms and scorpions. They also offered fudge and other homemade candy... More

This quaint little candy bar is filled with so many different types of candy you will have a hard time choosing and end up spending way more than you planned.

Get some of the taffy here, it's very tasty and fresh! Aldo couldn't pass up a chocolate Twinkie, but wish I would have, lol. But their chocolate is very good, also tried husband's chocolate covered banana which was very good. Gets a little busy and hectic in there do could possibly use an extra cashier or 2.
