  • Really enjoyed the homely atmosphere which includes many reminders of family run local business. Several rooms allow employees to demonstrate the manufacturing and finishing of their product. The area is busy and packed with goodies, accessories as well as seconds 'slightly' visually defective goods for 50% off (tastes the same though!)
  • Fine array of fine and interesting confectionery in this old original factory. Also had a cafe attached that sells hot drinks. Well worth a visit.
  • Great place. Taste the chocolate before you buy, watch them make it, huge range of chocolates and lollies of high quality plus toys and nicknacks. Worth the drive and there's a cheese place right next door.
  • I always buy their licorice because its hard at the start and chewy towards the end. Its got the best flavour of any licorice I've ever tasted - and I try any that come my way since its my favourite treat. I give their licorice 5 well deserved stars.
  • It was as I remembered. We have visited a few times over the years and we have always been pleased with the variety and quality of the products there.
