This mom and pop candy shop is the tastiest, friendliest, and most unique in the region. Voted "Best in State" in 2015! Vintage decor! Free smells!

Best candy ever! Try the choppers and the dark chocolate raspberry creams. The caramels are gooey heaven.

This may be the only place to buy real Chippers - Red River Valley potato chips dipped in premium chocolate. Very yummy. There is also a great selection of other candy.

Chippers ( ripple potato chips covered in mild chocolate) are wonderful!!! Iwas tasting free samples after my purchase of chippers, and I left my credit card on the counter. They called me the next morning to tell me they had it and I could pick it up anytime.
