If you are in the southern part of Pennsylvania by Pittsburgh you must try the candy and homemade ice cream! It is the best!

Loved that this place had a candy cottage look from the outside. When you entered, I was surprised at how small it was (I would not want to be in here during the holidays when it is probably packed). We were excited to see many "vintage" candy items that cannot be found everywhere and they have chocolate everything! My favorite:... More

Stopped at this candy shop on a whim. From the outside it looks like it would be a cool 'mom and pop' type of place left over from the late 1960s. Expectations were up but not high; upon entering they downright plunged. We were greeted to the sound of a loud vacuum. The lady was vacuuming out candy bins. Seems... More

Very clean, great selection of everything candy (including Gummies), prices equal to Sarris Candy but the quality does not come up to the quality of Sarris. I find Gene & Boots Candies EXTREMELY!!!!! sweet. If you want "sweet," here it is!

I stopped by Gene and Boots for some of my holiday gifts. This is a small town candy shoppe that can't be beat. I bought about 10 boxes of chocolates for gifts...and the recipients were more than delighted. If you're in this area and shopping for candies or chocolates....this is the place to go. These people have probably been in... More
