Reviewed March 16, 2014

Sweet tells you there will be candy, but thats just the start. Those sodas you enjoyed as a kid can be found there along with speciality chocaltes, snowcones , those candy bars you thought were gone to the ages have found a home here, great service here, located on Baltimore Street. a must see when your in Gettysburg.

“Found something special”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

We had to stop by the Sweeet! candy store while discovering downtown Gettysburg. There are so many tourist traps in Gettysburg and this could be another one but if you want to buy some unusual candies this is the place. I remember having candy cigarettes as a kid and found some here. Sure to find something to take home with you as a great gift for a special someone.

“Average shop”
Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

Shop worker was nice, but store wasn't as great as we expected. We've been to candy stores and old-fashioned type stores like this and it was just something average, not really special. Sure they had a good selection but it wasn't as big as I thought it would be either. It's worth popping in if you're walking around downtown but don't come from miles away.

“What a fun shop!!!!”
Reviewed February 1, 2014 via mobile

I love candy and I would never miss a chance to wander into a candy store while visiting a new destination. The owner was friendly, the store was busy, and the selection was awesome. I specifically wanted to try something I never had before and I had quite a selection of new to me items. My family and I had great fun in this quaint store. Love it!

“Very Sweeet”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

We love going into the Sweeet Shoppe. It takes you back to when you were a child. We love the names of the sodas that they carry. A must see when you get to Gettysburg.
