Has a decent selection of candy, but doesn't really carry any hard to find staples. Although has a good selection of unusual things you may want to try. Either way, a cool place to check out.

A huge variety of sweets and memories! We enjoyed some old fashioned root beer right out of the bottle. They also carry some reproduction lunch boxes and toys. Conveniently located in downtown Gettysburg. Prices were fair considering the location. Very friendly staff!

This store had lots of interesting candy and a ton of stuff I hadn't seen in years. The problem was that nothing had prices on it. I was shocked when I heard my total at the cash register and couldn't believe it when I looked at the receipt and discovered I had paid $8 for a candy bar!

Our Vosges Haut-Chocolat Candy Bars are indeed 7.99, but that price is the exception to the rule in our store as they are part of our high end candy section, on an upper shelf next to the Godiva, Lindt and Ghirardelli.

I'm very sorry if you were surprised at the price. We would have been glad to remove it from your order at the register with no problem.

We try to have something for everyone at all price levels and most people are vey happy with our prices. While we are a small family run store and can't compete on big box store price levels, 90% of our candy and soda is under $2, some is under 10 cents and most people have total bills under 5, 10 or 20 with a good amount of candy for their money. We are always glad to work with people to help them find what they want in their price range.

We did hesitate to put such a high end product in our store, but Vosges Haut-Chocolat was named one of the 10 Best Chocolatiers in the World by National Geographic and the bars were specifically requested by several regular customers and are enjoyed by many.

Sweet is an awsome place, you will find things from your childhood you thought were gone forever,soft drinks from days gone by nehi etc. Candy bars and other sweets form the good old days along with some unusual items, you got to check this place out. it's located on Baltimore street close to the diamond or Licoln square if you prefer.
