Best Candy Store ever. Staff is all wonderful and friendly. Incredible selection of chocolates, traditional and special homemade. Classic old-fashioned candy and new stuff too. Great for all ages. Stop in everytime we are in OS!

The owners are great! They are very kind and very sweet people. They saw us outside (in the stormy and windy weather) checking out the hours of operation and opened early for us. They have a great selection of all kinds of candy (including salt water taffy). And they'll ship candy to you. All you have to do is call!... More

The selection of candy was small compared to what I remembered in the past, customer service was great! I would still return but would hope they would expand their selections.

Good selection of older variety of candy favorites and some special chocolate selections for gifts, makes this a fun stop for young and older candy lovers. The kind saleslady packaged our chocolate selection gift with true, "times gone by" care when requested, tiny store box with tissue and paper cups to hold the treats, to make a special little gift,...

This store has AMAZING candy selections. This is a must stop every time we come to the beach. Their peanut butter cups are good though the peanut butter isn't sweet. Their chocolate covered peanuts are delicious. This store however is on the expensive side!

Buddy and Howie's has the candy from my childhood and brings back memories. The staff are very friendly and will remember you when you come back.If you want to try candy that was out in the 60's and 70's this is the place to get it.

My family and I when into Buddy and Howie is Candy Store and we were delighted to see the selection of candy that they had available. The only complaint that I have is that the older gentleman possibly the owner of the store got aggravated when I let my daughter sit on the counter to pick her type of candy.

Michelle, I am sorry that you had a complaint about our store, but we do not allow people to put children on the counter for health and safety reasons. We do have this posted on the counters. Melanie More

Can't go to the beach without salt water taffy and I love to find the locally owned places. This looked like that great family shop that has been around forever. We made our own assortment of fresh taffy. Great value and even better taste.
