They have the best sponge candy in all of WNY, bar none. The selection of other candies is quite extensive and they also offer Perry's ice cream which is delicious any time. Convenient hours.

We spent WAY too much money here. The chocolate is not cheap, but this is a case of "you get what you pay for". The dark chocolate is semi-sweet, but very smooth and creamy. The dark chocolate covered pretzels were stupid good.
