Stopped at this candy shop on a whim. From the outside it looks like it would be a cool 'mom and pop' type of place left over from the late 1960s. Expectations were up but not high; upon entering they downright plunged.

We were greeted to the sound of a loud vacuum. The lady was vacuuming out candy bins. Seems like something you should do before opening. We had to step over her vacuum cord to get properly in.

The shop is actually pretty small inside, and the selection of candy rather plain. Their advertising made it seem like they would have strange, creative homemade candies, but most of them were just colored M&Ms, chocolate coins, candy cigarettes -- things that I could find anywhere. Of the homemade candies, there weren't any other than standard truffles and chocolate covered pretzels. All of which were ridiculously priced.

Being polite, I asked the lady if there was anything she could recommend to a first timer like myself. "No." I asked which candies were the best seller? "Not really any." Which kind did she like best? "I don't know." Her answers were short and rude. She didn't even try to sell me her product.

To top it off, the place looked rather run-down, not exactly dirty but not clean. Made me wonder if she was vacuuming out bugs from the bins.

I love Gene & Boots Candies. The chocolate is creamy and delicious. The varieties are endless. The black walnut fudge is the best fudge that I have ever had. They also serve wonderful homemade ice cream. The shop is very cute and is a must stop especially near any holiday. I would go out of my way to stop at this delightful candy shop.

Very clean, great selection of everything candy (including Gummies), prices equal to Sarris Candy but the quality does not come up to the quality of Sarris. I find Gene & Boots Candies EXTREMELY!!!!! sweet. If you want "sweet," here it is!

I stopped by Gene and Boots for some of my holiday gifts. This is a small town candy shoppe that can't be beat. I bought about 10 boxes of chocolates for gifts...and the recipients were more than delighted. If you're in this area and shopping for candies or chocolates....this is the place to go. These people have probably been in business for 50-75 years.
