The new store is not nearly the experience the old store was. There's the giant bunny, but that's about it besides expensive candy. The old store was fun to explore and the new one has minimal character.

OK the concept is adorable and the vibe is cute, but the prices are off the wall! So if you have 1 or many kids you might want to avoid this place.

Store is closed until September and opening at a new location in September. I see reviews as recent as yesterday but this place is closed. 30 to park and it’s closed!!

Lots of old type candies to choose from along with today's favorites including gummy everythings, jelly beans in every flavor and a multitude of other candies. The chocolate selection was fantastic and had a huge selection of my favorite, white chocolate!
