Wythe Candy Shop has everything sweet that you can imagine. The staff is always knowledgeable and friendly, and the selection is fantastic. My favorites include the many delicious varieties of fudge, candied apples, and smores bars.

Also purchased candy by the pound. Various kinds of pretzels. Big bucks I thought. But the store itself was very nice. Good selectio of all kinds of higher end candies and chocolates. High end of course for tourism but worth the stop as you walk...More
