“Old Fashioned Candy Shop”
Reviewed 19 July 2013

This candy shop is an experience! I loved watching the fudge being made through the glass windows, and sampling the finished product...delicious! I bought several pounds of fudge for gifts and it was reasonably priced. There was an excellent selection of other candies, including many flavors of saltwater taffy. It was so much fun to pick out candy from the overflowing tubs of sweets. The only downside was the cashier, who looked like she did not want to be there. But the chocolate was awesome, so who cares!?

We go to Hayward a minimum of three times a year, and no trip is complete without a stop at Tremblay's.
Many years ago we first visited for the fudge. They have several flavors and you can watch them make fudge live through the large windows in front. In the rear of the store you can watch them make brittle--both peanut and cashew varieties.

The fudge is amazing, but so are the many varieties of homemade chocolate covered candies. There are so many to choose from--turtles to bon bons to oreos and haystacks. We tried a new flavor this year which was chocolate covered caramel with sea salt = delicious.

If chocolates are not your thing, there are both wrapped and unwrapped hard candies, taffy, toffee, lemon heads, and a huge variety of sugary treats. You fill a basket to your desired amount and pay by weight.

This is a must stop for a glimpse into old-time candy making!

“Old Fashioned Fudge Shoppe”
Reviewed 10 July 2013

A trip to downtown Hayward isn't complete without a stop at the candy store. I used to go for the fudge, but now they added a huge selection of other chocolate items. My favorite is the chocolate toffee. My son loves the peanut butter fudge and the peanut butter fudge balls. My daughters like the cashew brittle and the fudge covered Oreos. My husband likes the malted milk balls and the salt water taffy
