  • Truly a notable experience with the candy arranged by century and decade. The staff is knowledgeable and passionate. We got a sampler of different tastes over time. Worth the visit!

  • My boyfriend and I brought our kiddos here and had a wonderful experience. The salesperson told us fun little facts about Necco Wafers and candy hearts as well as other things. The candy we purchased was delicious as well. I am definitely recommending this place to my friends and family back home.
  • I was thrilled with my items but very disappointed in the customer service. The reason I gave them a 2 is because my credit card was charged full amount even though they fulfilled half of my order. I repeatedly called True Treats Historic Candy at their business number, there shipping number and their contact by email. I am very disappointed in this company. I was buying 2 of each because one was being made up in a gift basket. I have never had this happen to me but if you can't take the time to tell me you made a mistake,or to make good on my full order, I will not support your business and will post same review on FB. This is very poor customer relations.
