We really liked the large selection of unusual candies. Try the black jacks! My kids love the molasses candy.

for a reason!! Three words: BEST CANDY EVER. Favs? Dark chocolate covered crackers and Gibralters (all natural candy in lemon or peppermint with no preservatives and they STILL never go bad).

Excellent candies. The ladies behind the counter were packaging these tart sugar strings and gave us complimentary pieces to taste. Delicious! Also bought chocolate turtles. Store is very quaint with a wide variety of sweets. Worth a visit.
