“Amazing bit of America at it's best”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

It's like walking into a candy land of yesteryear with every imaginable sweet confection. The store is quaint and very charming right down to the old brass cash register and popcorn machine. The homemade fudge is incomparable! A must visit!

“Cool place with cool candy”
Reviewed July 10, 2012 via mobile

Im from Lexington and have been to this place many times. They have candy from your past and cool new candy. There fudge is good and the atmosphere is way cool. You really feel like your in the past. They have really old antiques and toys that are used for decorations but you can buy any of them! They are a little on the expensive side though. I live that they have coconut long johns and chocolates. If your in Lexington this place is a must stop

“nice experience”
Reviewed April 20, 2012

this little country candy store takes you back in time. from the friendly greeting when you walk in the door to the time you leave with your bag full of goodies....it was just a special place. we have been several times and go each time we travel by lexington. you even get a tote bag if you spend 25 dollars in the store. they have old toy, teeshirts, candy, fudge and much more. take time to look at the book they have on display that shows folks from all around the world holding their candy factory tote! just loved the place!
