The location in The Village is the best one. The employees are always so nice and helpful. I try to stop in here a couple of times during our visit to Gatlinburg. On this visit I got my granddaughter a box and it had all kinds of goodies in it.

While browsing the candy store, one of your cashiers asked me if I needed help. I guess I didn't respond quick enough since she quickly made a face, made the comment that I must not speak English and walked away. Just to clarify, I do speak English, happen to be a veteran of the USAF, MBA graduate, and you have... More

This is just the place to fix that sweet tooth, there are numerous selections of anything sweet. It's easy to find, right on the strip. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Only down note, items can be a little pricey. We will be back.

I always stop into the Candy Kitchen to get a large container of taffy to take home to work. Huge amount of choices of chocolates, fudge, sugar free candy, everything you could think of. It is hard to not buy one of everything. I purchased some divinity this time. Have not had in many years. Still just as yummy and... More

I have been coming here every year since I was 2 in 1951. Same quality, year after year, but prices do climb higher and higher every year, unlike my fixed pension. So, we simply buy less each year. So sad. Taffy used to be 25 cents per pound. Now it is around $8.00. But the Sky Lift in town was... More

We love the Village and all the quaint shops. The Candy kitchen has the best chocolate, yummy treats for children like rock candy and gummies, great assortment of chocolates, and even local jelly and jams! We always go here even if we are only there for a few days!

This was my first time trying this place, it is located right next door to Pancake Pantry. It was crowed the afternoon I went in, but there were plenty of staff to assist, the wait to make my purchase was short. They have a variety of candy, including sugar free selections. You can purchase pre boxed, or from the massive... More

It seams like every other shop on the main strip of Gatlinburg is a candy or fudge shop. But this one stands out. From traditional candy making on old time equipment right in the front window to the classic candy counter with all kinds of old time favorites (they even had Mallow Cups at a reasonable price!). I would visit... More

A must stop. A fairly large candy shop with lots to choose from. Enough employees who are knowledgeable and willing to help out. Watch the taffy being made. Will ship purchases for you.
