  • I had a well-earned ice cold RC Cola, after 10-miles of walking. It really hit the spot! Delicious. My sister had a shaved ice we she really enjoyed. I'm not big on candy but there is tons of it to ch...  read more »
  • While the ice cream and soda fountain take A LONG TIME, it is totally worth the wait in line. We love to stop in here for a look around, toss a few pieces of our favorite candy in a bag, and an ice cr...  read more »
  • Lots and Lots of candy to buy by the pound or individually. They also have great sodas - we had the Pink Elephant - so good. Rose Water Lemonade - you could really taste the rose and of course just a ...  read more »
  • This is a very fun place! Loved the variety. The old big top feel. You will spend a lot if you are not careful, but the gummy things are not overpriced, and are funny shapes and tasty too! Just go, you'll love it!!!
  • Greatest candy shop I've ever been in, you'll find crazy old (still edible) candies, made to order sodas are awesome too. Say hi to the Jerk for me.
  • This place is a great old fashioned type candy store, one of the few places left that sell my favorite candy of all called "ice cubes". Sadly they stopped keeping them in the fridge and are usually half melted , which they melt faster then most so usually just being in your hand melts them the rest of the way :(
  • I've been here every time I come to Austin and it's always a fun experience. There is always at least 3 employees so you never have trouble finding help. The candy variety is so overwhelming you feel like a kid in, well, a candy store! They have bags that you grab and drop any type of candy they have on display. You purchase by weight so it pays off if you want a large variety of items. The sodas that they have are awesome! They have tons of different flavors to choose from so I always get something different each time I go. I love this place and will keep coming back for years to come! 5 stars mang!
  • This place has candy I haven't seen in more than 20 years! I picked up some candy cigarettes, which haven't been a thing since the 1990s. The prices are good and the selection is amazing!! My only complaint is that the line can get long, especially if folks are getting ice cream.
