Product Guide


  • Candy/Chocolate


Brother-sister team Sam Greenfield and Diane Miller bought this tiny neighborhood store in 2004 and stocked it to capacity with gummies, hard candy, dried fruit, and chocolate made on the premises. Ask about the pumpkin pie fudge, you won't regret it. Top treats: Marshmallow kebabs made from five marshmallows skewered on a stick and drenched in milk chocolate. A gummy pet rat available in five different colors. Hand-made macadamia nut clusters. As for gifts, you can create your own basket and fill it with gummy fangs, tasty chocolate pumpkins, and harvest mix.
