“Sweet and Treat lovers delight”
Reviewed 1 May 2013

The gelato is extraordinary with mouth-watering flavors like honey-lavender. Tastes like you just stepped into Provence! Probably among the best sweet shops anywhere. The sister shop in Windsor, CA is also very good but slightly below the standard of the Healdsburg store.

“Franchised Candy Store”
Reviewed 30 April 2013

It's a candy store. Not much more to say, except that they didn't have spice drops. They did have Flicks, though. Lots of candy. There are other Powell's in different towns, like Chico, but they all have different owners and so carry different products. If you have a sweet tooth, you'll like this place. If you don't, why are you reading a review about a candy store??

“A blast from my past!”
Reviewed 7 October 2012

Actually went to the one in downtown Windsor. What an awesome place! Like stepping back into my childhood in the Fifties and Sixties. i was truly a happy kid in the candy shop. If you are a baby boomer, you must go here!
