The shop is adorable. Lots of old time treats which is cool. That said, the gelato was just okay. Mine had ice crystals in it and we all agreed that the flavors were lacking. Go to look, but skip the gelato.

Great friendly staff. many retro candies yo will remember as a kid. They have a TV playing movies and 3 "theater"seats to watch from. IF you ate it as a child, they have it here. What a great little find.

It felt like stepping back in time. Loved the setting by the park, decor, candy selection (different than the masses), and gelato. Really, really appreciated that the posted a list of candy that was Kosher (Vegan, peanut-containing, etc. too.)

Powell's in Paso Robles is sweet tooth heaven. It is a real memory jogger as you find candies from childhood that have been long forgotten, but magically are easily remembered when they are seen. With a zillion flavors of jelly beans, there is a flavor...More

A really cute little shop, playing willy wonka on repeat. Ice cream, Taffy, giant gummy bears and sweet related merchandise. Feels as much like a museum of sweety history as a sweet shop. Not a cheap sugar fix, but really lovely.

Great old fashioned Candy shop in the middle of old Paso. Well worth the visit even if your not a candy eater. Candies and goodies from way back. Loved watching the willy wonka movie while shopping. Loved it.
