  • Although we miss the old location we always stop here when we are in town visiting family in Old Town. The staff is always great and the chocolate is even better YUM!  more »
  • This was a fun store! I don't watch breaking bad, but the story and history of the store is very interesting. The candy and chocolate covered goodies are awesome. The Candy Lady is a mandatory stop.  more »
  • What a fun and hilarious visit. Met the owner Debbie Ball and the lovely lady behind the counter. Friendly and I loved the x rated chocolate! Reminded me of the exotic baker of NYC from the 1970s. You will always win me over with dark chocolate marzipan. Delightful and 😋. Don't walk run!!!!!!
  • I hate leaving unhappy reviews but unless you like Breaking Bad, the store is underwhelming. There was so much Breaking Bad merch that there was hardly any space for candy. They have a rated 18+ section but it is wide open and all they have is a sign saying don't go in unless you are 18+. On a plus side, They have a wide variety of chocolates and chocolate related candy but lack on other candies. Also, one of the ladies was very friendly and enjoyed talking to customers. They make some of there own candy but I was disappointed. The sour hard candy was sadly, not sour. The candy was quite expensive and I was hoping for more. I also bought a stick of rock candy but it was flavorless despite being supposedly "lemon" flavored. It was also very expensive. Not only was the store over priced, underwhelming, and lacking a wide variety of candy, but they also calculated my purchase wrong and over charged me a bit. I have social anxiety so I couldn't speak up about it.
