We were a little disappointed. We had already visited the other ice cream / candy store just a block or two away and this place had a VERY small amount to choose from. The place looked nice and clean just not much to buy. Maybe...More

The only reason I give this place a 1 rating is because the ice cream was good. The place is very dirty and the help doesn't do anything to clean up. They sit and play on their phones looking bored. It seemed as if it...More

I don't know WHAT candy store some of the other reviews went to, but the Ouray Candy store on the North end of town was disgusting. About 90% of the store was empty cartons, the rest was dirty fly-ridden leftovers. It had smeared chocolate all...More

What we saw did not totally match tripadvisor reviews nor photos. The candy shelves had big glass jars of old-time favorites, and the display cases were sort of filled with fudge and baked goods. I had the dulce de leche ice cream in a cup,...More
