Great place to find all different types of candy. Prices labeled great, no worries about having to figure out by weight, which is always a worry with kids. Will go back again when in the area.

Tours are free but need to be done between 9am and 3:30pm weekdays. This is when we are in production. The tour can take around 15-20 min depending on group size.
