“Not Worth the Time”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

$3 each for a really sketchy, basic, tour, with one of the stickiest floors you will walk on before getting back into your car.

Lots of history here and my hat is off to Ms. Ruth for making this a great business. But now there is a lot of old junk lying around and the tour should be free so that they can sell more candy.

We had four pieces of candy between the two of us and it was ok but nothing special (and very expensive -- $4.17 for the 4). There are other things in the area and I'd skip this one.

“Too expensive for me”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

Price prohibitive for me. Bourbon balls or not. Got a free sample and left. I don't understand how chocolate can be so expensive. Did not take tour. A candy store that is old. It is nice inside, nothing special, only history.
