I don't normally like snacks like this but wanted to know what all of the adults were heading into this store for. The place has some of the most interesting assortments of snacks and sweets that I've witnessed. I walked away with some really odd snacks, but the best thing I liked were the taffys they had there.

Found pre-packaged chocolate I wanted to purchase, however it was over a month past it's expiration. I asked the young girl working as the cashier whether they had any that was not expired or would discount the bar. She checked with a woman in the back who wanted to know how far past the expiration it was. They then put... More

We are very sorry that you had found a candy that was "expired." We DID remove the 2 we had from the shelf as we do not sell candy that is past the expiration date even at a discount. However, I also personally looked at the Toblerone bars when I removed them from the shelf and saw that the date... More

Take home some wonderful chocolates, so many different varieties and the choice is constantly changing. My favorite is the dark chocolate sea salt caramel or any of the truffles. Can we say chocolate covered bacon??? And yes, it is good! There are so many chocolate covered goodies, I want to try them all.

My daughter loves candy shops when we go on vacations. This seemed overpriced and I didn't find it that unique at all. My daughter didn't even want to buy anything.

CandyBarPIB, General Manager at Candy Bar, responded to this review

I'm sorry to hear that you were not impressed with our shop. Is there something in particular that you and your daughter were looking for or would suggest we carry? We do currently offer over 800 different candy and chocolate items, but we are always willing to carry more if you have any suggestions for something unique. More

Lots of candy types and really good fudge. Got the chocolate cheesecake and wish I could get more. It was super hot and humid though on the day we went and we still had to take the ferry back to the mainland so I didn't want to get much chocolate.
