This store has a wonderful selection of candy. When we had a question concerning a peanut allergy, they were prompt in getting an answer for us. They have candy varieties that I haven't seen since I was a child.

You'll find a wide variety of sugary sweets in this relatively small shop. The fudge is right along the counter in small bars of varying flavors. It's worth picking some up for the road after getting whatever else you're in the market for.

I went to the Sweet As Fudge Candy Shoppe in Philadelphia's Famous Terminal Market. This shop is sweet tooth heaven. Loads of chocolates, fudges and more to satisfy every taste bud. I came for the unsalted cashews and chocolate covered raisins. Thanks, Ernest.
