Powells recently redid the Healdsburg store, trying to be more of .. general store atmosphere, and though they've retained some of the sweets, the entire vibe of the place is changed completely and I miss the classic candy store chaos they had before.

I used to live in Windsor, CA and saw this "new" company open up on the Windsor Green that harkened back to the candy stores of days gone by--they stocked everything you EVER remember having as a kid (that was still being made, anyway), and offered fabulous gelato and gourmet chocolates to boot!

Since opening this store in 2003 (wow, it's been a decade now!) it has been wildly popular, and the Healdsburg store is one of 16 spinoffs since the company owner decided to franchise, and I don't like the layout of the space nearly as well as Windsor (feels very cramped and not as much fun to just browse). But the candy is the same and it's still awesome to visit.

Treat yourself to a gelato after a warm day shopping in the Healdsburg sun--or wine tasting on the square!

I wandered in here because I love salt water taffy. They didn't have as many flavours as I'd have liked, but there were enough to keep me happy. I especially loved their dark chocolate gelato that they serve with a tall, thin cookie. The service was good too. I'll definitely be back.

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?
