  • This store has candies that are in order of the year they were made all the way back to the 1700's maybe 1600's! It is just a really cool place to visit! Brought back a lot of memories of the 70's...  more »
  • This was a cute place to stop - we enjoyed looking at all the candy from the past. I wish more things would have been labeled with prices - it would be much more convenient.  more »

  • Tons of candies from different eras and cultures. Not only you get to spoil yourself, but also learn about what people used to consume as sweets back in those days. We also came in the right time where they were having water tasting event! We got to taste all kinds of different water and surprisingly they all tasted different. You should definitely stop by here. If you don't like sweets, they also have different teas.
  • The cutest historic candy store we ever did see!
