The woman working at the shop made us feel like we were an inconvenience. Did not seem to want us there. We quickly decided on a few items and left. The chocolates were excellent but did not feel welcome so not sure I would go back. I would have given it 5 stars had the service been good.

I think I put on 10 pounds just walking in this store. Not only a good treat but a great spot to get gifts.

Sweetness and Light is first and foremost a maker of delicious candy. Their special Moo Bars are fantastic! They also have coffee drinks at their sidewalk window. The service is friendly and courteous.

The young lady that helped us was very sweet. She waited patiently with us while we decided what delicacy we wanted to order.

Want to step back in time, and into an "old time" sweet shop"? Well between the wall of jelly beans, the hand made candy bars (both light and dark chocolate varieties) and the hand crafted chocolates...you'll think you died and went to heaven. One word of advice though...if your wanting their light or dark chocolate Marzipan, get there early, as... More

Caramels are my passion when it comes to candy...fresh, buttery, caramels are just incredible at Sweetness and Light. Try them plain, try them salted and then for a real taste 'punch' try them spicy! Woo-hoo...caramel heaven!

We stopped in Ferndale to visit the Victorian architecture which was absolutely incredible with all of the beautiful store fronts. This store happened to be a discovery and we all enjoyed indulging our sweet tooth. We had French raspberry truffles, chocolate mousse truffles, chocolate covered Oreos, and a chocolate covered cherry. Everyone enjoyed their treats!

I always go here for morning coffee! I wake early and have to start my day with a cup of "Go Juice" which goes down with some nice chocolate and this is the place to go in Ferndale!

This little shop turns out yummy treats in the Victorian Village. Prices are reasonable. The truffles are to die for!
