“Yummy!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

Worth a stop in what is otherwise a painfully tourist-driven town center. If you want to escape the overpriced gift shops, the stores selling whale-themed jewelry, and the "authentic native art" shops, this is a good bet.

The peppermint patties were particularly delicious!

“Great choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

I felt my hips expanding as I looked round,but after some tasting decided on a mixed box. A little expensive,but well worth it.
Try the chocolate gummy bears.

“Sweet!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

If you have a sweet tooth, this place if for you! You can choose from so many different candies that are being made right in front of you. The cost is a little high for sweets, but well worth it.

“Chocolate Shop Worth a Stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014 via mobile

Ketchikan Candies is a small chocolate shop that delivers some very good candy.

To be fair, this place felt identical to other local chocolate shops in Skagway and Juneau- there really isn't much to differentiate it, and these small chocolate shops mostly sell the same things. I will say that this place had the largest selection of chocolate-dipped Oreos that we saw. You score extra points for that.

Lack of differentiation doesn't mean lack of taste, as everything we had was quite good. My wife had a few different kinds of chocolate candies- she enjoyed them, but would stop short of saying she loved them.

I had two chocolate peanut butter cups- they were fairly tasty, but not quite incredible.

If you are in town briefly and want to get a sweet fix, this place is worth a stop.

“Local Treats”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014

We were walking around the downtown area and when I walked by their open door, I couldn't help but walk in. That is how they get you! But seriously, we purchased some chocolate peanut butter fudge, and it was delightful. Not too sugary, and tasted almost like a Reese's. I love peanut butter, so it was a nice treat. Lots of options to pick from too: truffles, brittle, fudge, gummies, etc. Something for everyone, sugarless options too!
