“We enjoyed the shop and the tour”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

We were at Good's recently for a home school field trip. The owner started the class off with an interesting question and answer session on the history of chocolate, how it is processed, and the history of his family (he is 4th generation owner). Then we viewed a video on where the cocoa beans are grown, how they are harvested, and how they become chocolate. Then we took the tour and saw the candy making in action. They had home made ice cream going in one area. Fresh fudge was prepared. And we saw a lady coating peanut butter popcorn with a drizzle of chocolate. It went through a cooling process and dropped into a box. Then we shopped. I would have loved to have picked up an ice cream cake for mothers day, but driving an hour back home, it would not have made it. But we did purchase candy and caramel corn. My favorite are the dark chocolate salted caramels, and the orange cremes. Also they had dark chocolate covered peanuts. And chocolate shaped into everything you could think of...high heel shoe chocolate, computer chocolate, and anything you could think of. Very enjoyable and very nice folks there. Next time I'm going to get an ice cream. He said the chocolate ice cream had real cocoa in it!

“The goods on Goods”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

Good's Candies is a popular place. The have great homemade candy and their new ice cream shop is amazing. If you order a one dip cone or sundae you get about 3 dips. Lots of variety and other litems like old fashion candy and lots of flavors of jelly beans. It is a little out of the way but a good place for a sweet treat. This is not a restaurant per say. They have, I think hotdogs and maybe a few other things; but you go there for ice cream and candy

“The Ice Cream is Phenomenal”
Reviewed 1 March 2014

Good's is famous in the Anderson area for their chocolates, and although I have enjoyed quite a bit of their selections in that portion of their building - I absolutely LOVE their ice cream. It's hands-down the best hard ice cream in Madison County, and it comes close to rivaling Handel's for the best I've had in the state.

You won't regret traveling here just to try some ice cream.

“Best sweets shop in Anderson area”
Reviewed 19 February 2014 via mobile

For your money, you're very unlikely to find a gourmet candy and ice cream shop in this area that is of such quality.

During the summer, it's delightful to get a big scoop of any number of their homemade flavors and take a seat outside. My personal favorite is the chocolate peanut butter combination, but they have several other unique varieties and quite a few simple classics, as well.

If you're in the market for higher prices gourmet chocolates, their candy shop side should do for you. A wide variety of truffles, caramels, chocolates, and choco-coated treats await the discerning customer. I always order from the display case, but they have an array of cute, thematic gift baskets, popcorn bags, and sundry old-fashioned sweets. For my money, the dark chocolate-covered toffee is best...
