This place smells amazing. When you first walk in your offered pralines. . . the heavenly smell! There is candy and salt water taffy every where. It's a stuff store to walk out of without something sweet and tasty!!

The free samples pulled me in, I purchased like a pound of the pralines, the worst parts were sharing them and when I ran out. I am going to order some online because they were just that good.
