Just like the old fashion candy stores! They make all their candy here and have many kinds for sale. Including the famous Bing candy bars. Cherry filling covered with milk chocolate and nuts, so yummy!! There's something for all ages that you will enjoy! I recommend checking this shop out!

Large assortment of candies. I tried sea salt carmels they were delicious. Brought home one of their marinades pineapple ginger sauce. Cooked pork chop with the marinade and they were really good.

Best place to get chocolate in town. Always stop to purchase twin bings. Love the choices they offer. They have bins and you can choose the amount you wish to purchase. Love this place

There is a huge variety of candy available here - lots of classics and some crazier things. Great place to buy candy in bulk. Also on display is some old machinery that they used to use in the factory. Cool to see the changes that have been made.
