The reviews on this place made it look like a must see place.Unfortunately it's just a candy store with overpriced chocolate . I was choked when I saw my receipt for few candies that my kids bought!

This little shop has some amazing candy and variety! Feels like being a kid all over again. Make sure to check open days and hours! I heard from locals that tour groups come too early before 10am and most shops are closed..especially mondays!

Just stopped in to grab some chocolate covered almonds and was surprised with how friendly the staff is. Even gave me a sample of a British candy because I was the first customer of the day. Nice to see good customer service isn't dead.
