A delicious assortment of different candies sure to please everyone. The butter creams were heavenly. They also had double coated seconds which were delicious. This will be on my list of shops to stop at the next time I am in Dubuque.

Hi Azona! The bathroom doors lock automatically when you close the door. We do not make the gummy candies, on the label it says "made for Betty Jane Candies." Our specialty is our handmade chocolates, I encourage you to try them sometime!
