I think I put on 10 pounds just walking in this store. Not only a good treat but a great spot to get gifts.

Sweetness and Light is first and foremost a maker of delicious candy. Their special Moo Bars are fantastic! They also have coffee drinks at their sidewalk window. The service is friendly and courteous.
