Otherwise it’s just an enormous pile of sugary candy and inexpensive toys. To be honest, if it’s decent candy you’re looking for, the fudge place round the corner is a much better dal.

Great store with everything in it. Candy, soda, ice cream, clothes, food, toys, etc. I could go on all day. Probably spent at least 45 minutes browsing and purchasing some great things. Just good old fun.

They have all kinds of fun items to choose from, including yummy snacks, cold or hot drinks. My favorite was their pecan praline candy. You have to stop by next time you are close to Jefferson. 😃👍🏻

We stopped in there several times and each time we saw something different. The only thing we bought was ice cream cones and some candy bars but you should go in because they may have something you just have to have. !
