The owner relishes detailing all the candies we looked at and how it was made. They take pride in making things in the same manner too. Good layout and we came home with some different items than the norm.

If you lived back in the 1960's you'll find some of your old favorites here like Chuckles and Bonomo's Turkish Taffy. They also have some "historic" candy. Worth a stop by.

The shop is nice and ancient. Many candies from many places in the world. There are several sections where candies are sorted out by their market launch date. The chocolates were not looking very fresh.

Enjoyed a quick stop in this store. Really cute how everything is arranged by year. It IS pricey, so, purchase candy that you can't purchase elsewhere. Definitely a FUN stop!
