No longer in business. We found another Candy Shoppe (2 locations), one on either side of Hwy 11 about 5 mins north of Orillia. Friendly staff good variety of candy and collectables, but the prices were fairly high.

This store no longer exists. Great service, they made sure to keep stock of my fav's (banana runts, the good type of jawbreakers etc). Sugar is in everything and being demonized. It should still be a treat though. Will be missed :(

I have a big sugar tooth and when it comes to buying candy I especially love this store. From retro to current. I always find something I'm looking for even sugar for my candy floss machine
