We have been going here since I was little. Always visit whenever we visit Gatlinburg. Good fresh candy and friendly employees. It’s pretty cool to watch them make the taffy too. A must see on your visit.

Stop by and watch them make taffy from the window! Go inside and they will give you free samples of the taffy!

Has to be the best candy store anywhere around. They handmake most of their candy. Love the taffy and caramel apple with nuts. The staff is nice and helpful also. A tradition of Gatlinburg for many years.
