We went to Carytown to explore. We had heard about this place. So, we went inside. They have almost everything - every type of candy and likely all of your childhood favorites that you had forgotten. My wife found some candy that she had loved as a child and bought a bagful. They have a lot of candy in display... More

What an amazing shop! Full of all kinds of bulk candies, vintage candies, silly candies, plus an amazing chocolate counter with truffles galore! You won't leave there empty-handed.

This place is wild! First visit was amazing! I think I walked out with (purchased) 5 pounds or so of candy. They have so many types and flavors and assortments of most types or candy. From imported to local. It's all delicious!! Check it out! But don't go hungry are you'll buy too much:-)!

They not only have the best assortment of chocolates and gift selections already packaged, they have individual chocolates you can buy (and eat on the way home, NOT that I do ) I have visited their store for many, many years and even used them to...

I became a chocolate lover while I was in Belgium last year. Since then, I've found it difficult to find chocolate that can compare to the quality I found over in Belgium. This place is great because I can choose from a range of chocolate products from around the world, as well as the chocolate they sell in their case.... More

This must be the store with most extensive selection of chocolates as well as other candies in the Richmond area. They have many products from foreign countries; so you don't have to rely on the usual USA standbys. Be aware that these fancy candy bars mostly cost at least $3.99 per bar with prices going up to $7.99, maybe more.
