I've visited this shop several times. It is quaint, smells like fresh caramel corn which they lure you in with. The chocolates here are ok, however, expecting truly local items, I found shipped csndies, chocolate from competitive companies and items typically not found in a true candy shoppe. Little disappointed in expecting truly locally sourced chocolate and finding Wilbur buds... More

I have been going here since I was a kid, and every time I go back to Lebanon, I always make a visit. The owners are so nice, and they haven't changed much in the 40+ years I've been going, which is exactly what gives this sweet little Shop such character and charm. The vanilla caramels are the best in... More

Think Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. This shop is tiny but it's a wonderland of sweet treats. You can buy in quantity or just get one piece if you are trying to watch your diet. This is a Lebanon County staple - been here since my mother's childhood more than 80 years ago.

Going in the quaint store is like stepping back in childhood times. So many decisions to make in regards to what candy to buy! They offer items of long ago, even those that may have been forgotten. Everything is so fresh, it is hard to decide what to buy. I can't drive by that store without stopping in there.

Sitting across from HACC in Lebanon, this candy store has lots of delights to choose from. You must try to chocolate covered bacon!

My family on both sides have been coming here for generations. The Opera Fudge, Caramel Corn and Caramel covered Marshmallows are local favorites as is everything in the store. My favorite is the Teaberry Salt Water Taffy. Yum! They also have a website you can order from and take special requests there.

When in PA I have to stop in for some caramel corn, it's the best, as is their house made caramels, opera fudge, chocolates... the list goes on! When I stopped in they were just stirring the caramel for the caramel corn, I had to wait for it to cool, it was worth the wait, there is none better and... More

Our lovely GPS took us on a very long detour for some odd reason to go to Fort Indian Town Gap, so we took advantage of it and stopped in at this candy store. Customer Service was awesome!

This rare little shop has exquisite homemade chocolates and old fashioned Carmel corn! Smells like you walked into a candy shoppe from yesteryear! They have rare candies you can't find anywhere else, wonderful service and reasonable prices! If you want to take a "little" bit of old fashioned candies that melt in your mouth...be sure to stop in and buy... More
