Good selection of items for purchase. Overall more targeted to children than adults. Best part was getting to talk to chocolate makers.

This place is a mixture. You can get candy (visit all the floors), food and alcohol. The sweet potato fries were very good. Portion sizes run smaller so not much if you intend to share. Parking is a bit of a challenge.

Do not miss the tour and watch them make their amazing candy! Their sea salt caramel is to die for. Their restaurant is also very good!

Sweet pete's is the best. My kids love coming here to participate in the candy making classes. The candy cane making class at Christmas was very hands on, fun and great for kids.
