They have all kinds of candy. Chocolate with any kind of nut that you can imagine. Taffy. Carmel. Probably 50+ types of jelly beans. There is also a coffee shop.

Loved my visit to this little spot. From the perfect souvenir to the record playing Wurlitzer to the homemade candy and taffy, this little spot has something for everyone.

We stopped here to see what they had to offer. My wife loved the caramel apple and my niece got rock candy. I love the way it's decorated. I picked up some black licorice for my dad. Great value and a neat shop.

We went to The Candymaker on the last day of our vacation and wished we had shopped there for souvenirs instead of the supercenter type souvenir shops. Do yourself a favor and get your souvenirs here instead! Much better selection of really interesting wares instead...More
