Kids had fun choseing their candy, its sold by weight so the heavier the candy the pricier it is. After you reach a pound you get a stuffed animal. Is suggest getting candies you e haven't had in a long time,or never tried.

I find it hard to believe that this is even considered a place to rate as it is in the front/lobby of the Ripley's fun zone or something of that nature. If your idea of a Factory is about 20 square feet with 40 some...More

While I'll admit this is Candy Heaven, it was extremely over-priced. I spent around $12 on a bag of gummies that I could've gotten for a couple dollars at any supermarket. I was bummed that there wasn't much "specialty" candy. The candies that were specialty...More

Nothing special that you can't get anywhere else. Overpriced and gross. Go to a local place instead cause it'll be cheaper and better quality.

Could have bought big bags at your local Walmart cheaper than this. Spent almost 10$ for a handful of candy....

Skip this! Candy is bulk and everyone is putting hands in, no employees supervising. Save yourself your health and money and go to a gas station!

This is at the end of one of the Ripley attractions and is accessible from the street without having to go through Ripley. It is full of candy. Nothing special and prices are high as expected in a place like this.

Overpriced keep moving. I suggest checking out shops in Baskin Square or maybe the Village. The candy was just really overpriced dr the amount you get compared to surrounding shops.
