“YUM!”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

Amazing sweet shop, and so charming, too. Boys got some taffy and the Lego Sweet Tarts (ingenious invention). Hubby and I got some peanut butter malt balls (delectable) and a few items to bring home. So many unique choices; I want to go back soon to buy more!

“Willy Wonka is Jealous”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

How rare to find a gourmet candy shop with a truly different and interesting selection. The cottage itself looks like it was an extra in a children's movie. To see all of the unique and tasty candies from the UK, Finland, Germany and other places was a joy. The folks working there did not seem thrilled, but everything else made up for it.

TIP: Rasberry truffles cannot be avoided!

“Fudge and English toffee...yum!”
Reviewed 11 July 2013

Stopped in at this sweets shop after dinner and got some cookie dough fudge and English toffee. Good candy and pretty good prices, compared to other higher end chocolates. Very small space, but cute shop and a fun stop during our evening stroll in Carmel.
