Yes, it's neat someone seems to always be making taffy in the window, but that doesn't mean anything tastes good. We threw away all the fudge we bought because it was so gross. We also got a praline that wasn't very good and some other...More

I find it mesmerizing to watch them make candy. Something you rarely see anymore. The fudge, the taffy - it's all amazing! If you are there when they are wrapping a new batch of taffy you'll get a free warm, gooey sample! So amazing!
