“A Blast from the Past”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The Candy Factory is a treat for young and old. They carry candies I ate when I was younger and all the popular candies now. They have displays of old toys and books and all sorts of things for sale. I live in Davidson County so I am fortunate to be able to go by anytime. The Candy Factory is a credit to Lexington..

“Sweet place to visit”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is an old timey candy store in downtown Lexington. It's a fun place to visit and it stirs up fond memories of yesteryears. Kids love it and adults do too. It's especially nice to visit during the various holidays.

“Great Place”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

It has old school decor and is a great place to travel back in time a bit and yet enjoy many sweet treats from yesterday and today PLUS it offers items for those watching their sugar intake.

“An Amazing Find”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

On a recent trip to Lexington, NC with friends, everyone agreed that the highlight was The Candy Factory. Maybe it was the ability of the place to pull memories from your childhood with displays of long gone packaged candies, or the back room sales displays of old toys and children's books, or the creaky old wooden floors. It was certainly the smiling staff, homemade fudge and Red Bird mints (made in Lexington with real peppermint oil). Everything about the store is authentic. You'll be back!

This is a great candy shop in downtown Lexington. They have a little of everything and the prices are not bad either.
