I've wanted to visit this establishment for several years and just never got there. I happened to be picking up a food order next door and decided to step in. This day happened to be Valentine's day. This store is not a place you just "step in". Once you get in the door you can't help but be lured in... More

I love this place. It is like stepping back in time, not only for the different kinds of candy but the service as well. They are great!

Wow! This place was so adorable and they had everything! It was so cheap for the bags of candy, and I got all of my favorites including toffee and taffy. I loved it and would definitely recommend!

This candy store is like stepping back in time. Not only do they offer amazing candies that you can't often find other places, they also have cool toys and holiday decor. Plan on staying a while when you come !

This is by far my favorite store in downtown Lexington. It has such an old school feel, and the fudge is to die for. The candy selection is incredible, and they also have lots of toys and little knick-knacks. Love this place!

This is a must visit if you are nearby. This candy store has treats you loved as a child and thought they didn't exist anymore such as BB Bats. There is also a huge selection of fudge and chocolates. While I mad some selections for gifts, my husband enjoyed reminiscing in the back with the old toys. Kids and adults... More

This is an "old style" candy store on Main street in Lexington. They have all kinds of old fashioned candy. They have candy I haven't seen since I was a child. And they also have some sugar free candy options for any one that may be a diabetic or just watching their sugars. I LOVE the peppermint candy. Old fashioned... More

Great selection of old fashion candies to great fudge and wonderful chocolates. Get one of their bags and use it in your vacations and share your pictures with the staff. A must to visit when in the Lexington area.

If you love candy this is the place for you. When we were there it was crowded and hard to get down the candy aisles so we decided to look at the antiques and give it a chance to thin out. They have a lot of vintage toys and I really enjoyed looking at them. Then we bought more candy... More
