The candy is superb as was the scrap cookie. Everything melted in my mouth. I do think it was a bit over the top in pricing, but for a once in a while sweet treat, it was great.

To Those who Came to the Store...In mid season I the owner was laid up with medical issues. I want to apologize for the rudeness, smells, limited selection of chocolates, ice cream and any other problems I missed. And yes I do make most chocolates...More

The place smelled like urine and sewage. The candies were not homemade, and were nothing special. The attendants were disinterested. Didn't greet us when we went in except to look up for a moment. Wouldn't go back.

The store was very poorly stocked. The homemade candies they did have were disheveled and looked like someone had ransacked the shelves. The lady who was there couldn't be bothered to stop watching tv long enough to help anyone. Very dissappointed

Was a bit disappointed in the selection. What we had was good but with a name like "candy co" I would've like to see more choices around the store. I had the dark choco Oreos which were very good!

This little shop is located on the main street. The chocolate is very good, but a bit pricey. We ordered half a pound of mixed chocolates. They were wrapped a bit haphazardly and put into three small boxes which we then had to carry individually...More
