“Sugar Rush”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2014

This is the cutest candy store - a small house with some outdoor seating where you can eat your ice cream. It takes at least 20-30 minutes to browse through the store to see all of the different kinds of candy, ice cream, homemade chocolates, and bottled sodas. They have some old-school stuff and pretty much any kind of candy you can think of, some sold from bulk containers and some packaged goods as well as chocolates in a case. We ended up just getting ice cream which was delicious and some peanut butter cups to take with us which were okay but not as good as they looked (a little heavy on the chocolate and light on the peanut butter). The bottled sodas were a unique idea - they have individual bottles in refrigerated cases with tons of different flavors and you can choose one or two or create your own six-pack. My only warning is that along with the big kids there are lots of little kids really excited with all of this sugar, so be prepared :) Another tip: right across the street is the Hard Eight BBQ, where you should eat before your visit to Hey Sugar.

“Adorable place with stale candy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014 via mobile

I love and adore this place...I only wish they would change out their bulk candy more...we have bought tons upon tons of hard, stale, past it's prime bulk candy. Stick to the icecream, great sodas and blast from the past wrapped candy.

“Flashbacks and sweet treats”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

My husband and I had a great time pointing out all of the great candies from our day to the kids and finding new treats we've not had before! We stopped by after dinner for one treat each but walked out with several. Several ice cream choices, even better truffles and many new and old school candies as well as every type of root beer you could want! Prices were perfect and I even splurged on the $3 truffles (several). We spend about an hour shopping and could've easily spent more with the great selection. It did not break the bank and was a sweet treat at the end of our night.

What can I say other than you have to really experience Hey Sugar in person to truly appreciate this quaint little store.
