I'm surprised by how many people seem to have had negative experiences with the staff, as my wife and I both found the staffer delightful (to be fair, we had no kids with us, although several stopped in while we were there and I sensed no hostility). The selection is very good for a small shop in a small town,... More

The staff members in here are not welcoming to children. They look at kids as if they are going to go nuts and start touching or grabbing everything in sight. You would expect they could do a better job interacting with kids because it's a candy shop. I guess they want older customers like several of the businesses in Sidney... More

If you have any kind of a sweet tooth, or a friend who does...you'll be certain to find something to delight. Whether it's a special licorice or marzipan, or sweets that you remember from childhood or abroad...look for it here.

We found this local candy store to be a nice change from most of the local establishments on the main street! It has lot's of different selections when trying to choose candies from all over the globe! Price point maybe on the high side, so we did not purchase any of the tasty bites!

Quite a few months ago I had business dealings with the lady who owns this store. I have never been to her candy store and I'm sure it is lovely - what could be bad about a candy store? However, after having to serve her at my place of business, I was appalled that someone in customer service could treat... More

My kids want to stop here every time we drive by. The candy is affordable and makes a lovely treat after a great lunch at Georgie's Cafe which is next door.
