We always come to this candy store when we are in town, the chocolate is really tasty, and the taffy is pretty good as well, but I have to tell you, the 3 women behind the counter were not nice to anyone there, acted as though they were doing you a favor by helping get your candy for you.

I love their maple cream candies! Every time I must buy a pound. As for the taffy... yummy. Tip: order from the nice ladies behind the counter for fresher taffy.

We noticed the prices here are better overall than most other places. The candy is good and the taffy machine is fun to watch too.

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
