You MUST stop in this old timey candy shop while in Lexington, especially during the holidays! It was almost standing room only on the day I was there (a few days before Christmas). Although I don't eat much candy, I left with peppermint gifts in...More

Hubby liked the fancy truffles in the glass case-lemon,Orange,dark chocolate. I was tickled to see they had some of the Bobbsey twin books I read as a child for sale in the back. Staff helpful and courteous.

If you cannot find something to satisfy your sweet tooth at the Candy Factory your sweet tooth must have been lost years ago. Wonderful selection of fresh and hard to find treats. This old time candy store brings back wonderful memories of yesteryear.

There was a lot of candy which I would expect in a candy store, the prices were a little high for my taste. I did find a book I had been looking for in the gift shop so it wasn’t a wasted trip.

Good candy store with old time favorites - pricey. Employees have no knowledge of chocolate - they said they just put the candy out for sell, no idea of type or percent cocoa content

I love to go there for the pop corn and sometimes some special candy. The only thing Neg. is I noticed they sale some candy that is made in China. They have told me they would try to stop that. Hope so. V&L

The floors creek, old toys, very nostalgic. Any candy that you ate as a youngster, you can probably find it here. Brings back memories. Of course, they have newer candy and gift items, as well. They make fudge and will give you a sample to...More
