The amount of candy and treats here is simply amazing. The prices are great as well. The chocolate is made on site and they can customize things for you as well.

Gene and Boots is a Pittsburgh tradition. We grew up taking (seemingly) long road trips to visit the original shoppe and select an array of treats to sample and take home. While Pittsburgh is home to several exceptional chocolatiers, this is definitely one of the best! They have everything from mouth-watering caramels and meltaways to decadent truffles and chocolate pops... More

Loved that this place had a candy cottage look from the outside. When you entered, I was surprised at how small it was (I would not want to be in here during the holidays when it is probably packed). We were excited to see many "vintage" candy items that cannot be found everywhere and they have chocolate everything! My favorite:... More

Stopped at this candy shop on a whim. From the outside it looks like it would be a cool 'mom and pop' type of place left over from the late 1960s. Expectations were up but not high; upon entering they downright plunged. We were greeted to the sound of a loud vacuum. The lady was vacuuming out candy bins. Seems... More

I love Gene & Boots Candies. The chocolate is creamy and delicious. The varieties are endless. The black walnut fudge is the best fudge that I have ever had. They also serve wonderful homemade ice cream. The shop is very cute and is a must stop especially near any holiday. I would go out of my way to stop at... More

Very clean, great selection of everything candy (including Gummies), prices equal to Sarris Candy but the quality does not come up to the quality of Sarris. I find Gene & Boots Candies EXTREMELY!!!!! sweet. If you want "sweet," here it is!
