“Sweet surprise on Market Street”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

As my husband and I did the "tourist stroll" down Market Street, a genial young fellow offered us a sample of candied pecans. Although we initially kept walking, we promptly turned around and stepped inside the shop for a purchase of candied Southern Heaven. Hey, pecans are good for you!

“The best, friendliest candy shoppe I've ever been in”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

Spent a long weekend in Charleston, and we ate here EVERY DAY. By day three, we were on a first-name basis. The praline candies can bring a tear to your eye, and the steady stream of repeat customers proves the popularity of this place. A trip highlight!

“Down Town”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

While in Charleston South Carolina taking a vacation me and my sister had to go down town because we heard about a store they had. It was the Moon Pie Store. It was great, all the candy you could think of from back in the day was at this store. Also while we were down town we got to see the horses that take people through the town while someone tell you the history. Down town also has a street with all kinds or people that set up shops for you to buy all kids of neat stuff. It was awesome. I will be back next year.

“Yummy treats!”
Reviewed June 18, 2012

Even though they are a bit pricey for the size, we always splurge and get some of the bear claws and pralines. They are very good and we always look forward to going in and choosing treats. If you are cruising downtown Charleston, you should definitely stop in and try something. I've never had anything from there that wasn't great.
