It's always fun to step back in time and discover all the candy we loved as children. It's nice to be able to buy a little bit of this and a little bit of that, so we can remember it all. Sometimes it was better when we were kids!

We have been going to this candy store for years! They have a huge selection of candy and some of the best fudge found anywhere.

After the disappointing stop at Dick's 5 and dime we wandered down the street and found this gem. Having the kids (7 and 10) in tow made it easy to find a candy shop with their sugar radar. While Dick's 5 and dime is hardly that; this is truly an old fashioned candy store!!! Just candy and candy done right. Tons of flavors of taffy plus hard to find sugar free candy. Lots of gummis, jelly beans, hard candy, licorice etc.... Even the hard to find older stuff teaberry gum, BB Bats, Sugar Daddys and even candy cigarettes and cigars (although they are now politically correctly renamed - a shame). The nice woman behind the counter was outstanding and they have the old school scoop it for you instead of 100 kids dropping stuff all over the place like the candy shops today. Very personalized service, lots of old time candy boxes and ads on the walls, even a Pez collection.

This took us back to our youth and our kids didn't make fun of us.

Nothing bad to say about this place. Very good candy, large selection of taffy, and some older candy you haven't seen for a while, all under the same roof. A must stop to satisfy that sweet tooth for your vacation.

We LOVE this candy shop! We stumbled onto it when we were walking around downtown once and boy are we glad that we did! We are local's to Branson and we would normally go to Silver Dollar City to get candy but now we honestly enjoy this shop BETTER than the candy store in SDC! They have more flavors of taffy and gummy bears and it's just a quaint little shop with a sweetheart of an owner, too! If you want a taste of nostalgia (they have the old candy cigs in gum and the regular ones as well as some of the old time brands of packs of gum, too) check them out. You won't be sorry and you will be thanking me for telling you about them. Oh and her prices are VERY reasonable, too! Bring the kiddos and your sweet tooth and have a blast!
