We were in search of candies from other countries and was requested of us and this place was perfect. The owner was super helpful and very nice. Free WiFi as well. He's been there for seven years.

If your in Phillipsburg at the breach front, don't forget to stop here. You can be a kid again, and if you have kids. They will love it. Without a question. The best place to buy candy on the whole island.
