This is a bit sentimental stop for us, we have been coming here every since our kids were little. Over the years, the ambiance has changed. The live rattlesnake passed on, the original owner is no longer in the shop, the lots of knick knacks...More

This was a fun, old-fashioned, candy station that you pay for by weight. Self serve. There is also homemade sweets and you can try samples. It was cool to see the candy of my day mixed in with the kids favorite candy of today.

This is the best candy store I've ever seen. Thing you thought they didn't make anymore, they got it. And the archives they have are really cool. You've got to see the rattle snake, he's giant.
