“Expensive for candy you can buy at CVS for 1/2 as much”
Reviewed 20 June 2013

The ice cream looks tasty, but it's overly sweet. You can buy their ice cream in the freezer section at Big John's Market for far less. What is the point of this place?

“Great sweets and open later than expected!”
Reviewed 27 May 2013

We were pleasantly surprised to find this place still open after dinner (they don't close until 9pm). The hand-dipped candies, chocolates, and truffle case is almost overwhelming! We loved the caramel truffle, chocolate covered smore and the chocolate covered peanut butter cup. We wouold have loved to have tried a lot more!

“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??
