There seems to be an unlimited amount of of sweets in this well-known and decades old establishment. From the samples of freshly-made taffy to the candy apples, this is a must visit location when in Gatlinburg.

First of all, watching the taffy machine and the man handing you a piece of warm taffy is wonderful. This store has so much to choose from and the people working there are so friendly and helpful.

We always stop by here to get good fresh taffy. If you get here early enough in the day you can watch them make the taffy. The prices here seem to be pretty good

´Tis a grand day. Ole Smoky Candy Kitchen is among the most iconic candy shops in Gatlinburg. My wife has settled on a one-half pound of dark chocolate Orange Peels, which she does not share. We recommend.

This is a stop we make everytime when we are in Gatlinburg. Their taffy is always fresh and tasty. Pickup some peanut brittle or cashew brittle (our favorite) while there. Their chocolates are also tasty and fresh

It is located in a small shopping center called The Village. I believe there are public restrooms nearby.
