We stopped in here after spotting it from going to eat dinner. Definitely was a fun stop to make! Really enjoyed seeing some of the old candy brands and getting some old time taffy!

I saw the signs from the interstate and decided to take my little one. It was a precious little shop and we enjoyed looking at all of the nostalgic candies.

We stopped here on our way to our B&B for ice cream. It was great and the store was nice. I was sort of expecting a more nostalgic ice cream shop. They serve Blue Bell here and that is always a good thing.

We stop in here often. Biggest flavor selection of Gummy Bears around. If you remember the old candy brands, Candyland Cottage carries most of them. Malts are made with real hand-dipped ice cream. I love the Root Beer float.

I go here nearly every time we drive by this section of I-10. It's easy to get off the Interstate, load up with candy, and continue on in a much sugared up mood. The selection is vast, including candies I remember from childhood, but it also includes truffles, fudge, and shakes. Unfortunately for me, this shop doesn't have my personal... More

A nice place to satisfy your ice cream and sweet tooth. Fresh daily fudge of many flavors, jelly beans of numerous flavors and candies from the olden days in addition to the ice cream and hot dogs. Small establishment with only a few tables (but then who needs a table to eat ice cream and candy!). Memorabilia from the past,... More
