I have to be honest, drove by this place at its former and present location countless times and never stopped as I thought it has "tourist trap' written all over it. I'm not one into elephants and I guess people do collect just about any and everything but I personally found and enjoy their array of penny type of candy.

One review mention it being stale and I don't know where they are coming from on that comment. I have now stopped by at least 4 times on past drives through that part of the state and the candy has ALWAYS been fresh!

On my stops I have never met Mr. Ed but I would have to say this place is a "unique" experience, and if you love root beer barrels, then you need to stop by!

this is a nice place to stop if you are traveling and just want to meander around and see some unusal things. Prices are a bit high but then it is a tourist sight. I would recommend seeing it, if you have some extra time and money.

We have actually met Mr. Ed in the shop. He is such a nice guy!

We have gone with young kids and not so young kids. You could spend a ton of money in the store. Our favorites are the butter roasted pecans, almonds and cashews. It is hard to not finish the bag on the drive.

Very cute decorations outside, too.

Its a neat Candy store, with alot of elephants. We enjoyed seeing all the old candies. My spouse got real "Root Beer Barrels". We enjoyed seeing all the elephants, then walked the garden. Its free, and fun too.

This is just the coolest place. You have to go at least once. Check out the gummy assortment and say hi to Mr. Ed.
