Garlic is King in this World. Make this a must see when shopping for all things garlic. The store is oriented to the tourist and visitors. Lots of garlic products, all fresh and available to take away. Recommended!

Garlic World has a wide variety of products. They also have produce. I have been there twice and they have never been friendly.. Their italian flavored pickled garlic is very good.

Neat store. Could spend groups of money on Garlic stuff. Wanted to pick up some Garlic Ice Cream, but it would not survive a two day drive home. Lots of unique and interesting stuff.
