If you like your candy with a side of racist bumper stickers and ads then this is the place for you. I had to explain to my 6 year old why these things were hanging in a candy store. No thanks.

Lots of variety, my kids were THRILLED. We stocked up one afternoon after exhausting our selves at the beach. It was the perfect treat. It was a little pricey, but nothing that would keep us from purchasing it.

This was a fun, old-fashioned, candy station that you pay for by weight. Self serve. There is also homemade sweets and you can try samples. It was cool to see the candy of my day mixed in with the kids favorite candy of today.

Love this place. Always visit when we come to Port A. Great selection of candies. Kind of pricey. Probably best to give the kids a price limit. Always loved visiting the rattlesnake they had, but this visit, found him stuffed😢 He passed in Dec 2016....More

We stopped in twice while visiting Port Aransas and thoroughly enjoyed both visits. Huge selection of candy and the most delicious fudge and caramel. Definitely a must visit while in town!
