  • If you love candy there's no better place to get it when its being made right in front of your face. Wonderful environment for the family. If your lucky they will give some taffy hot off the press.
  • Absolutely the best Taffy in Tennessee! Some of the staff can be a little snooty. We go every single time we visit Tennessee. I keep the cute boxes they come in and reuse them for Christmas ornaments. I love that you can mix the flavors for a personalized box of Taffy.
  • This is my favorite candy store. Can't go wrong with anything you buy here. Delicious and good prices.
  • Iconic Gatlinburg. Watch them make candy and taffy and get something sweet for the kids. They deserve it after you made them walk all over town.
  • The low rating is based on customer service, which is the most important part of any business interaction for me. We were the only customers in the store and they were literally just standing around, so I know the lack of customer service was not based on the fact that they were preoccupied. We were not greeted when we walked in. We looked around the whole store, commenting on many things, and not a single person working in the store said one single word to us the whole time. We were never asked if we could be helped. Finally when we decided what we wanted, checking out was done at the bare minimum of civility on their part. They barely even made eye contact. Finally, I asked where the closest place was that we could get coffee & we were told they didn't know. Really? You don't know? You work here every day, and you don't know where you can get some coffee near here? Finally, they suggested McDonald's. Meanwhile, when we left we saw other people with Starbucks cups, and they kindly pointed us in the direction of Starbucks which was just 1 block away. They get 2 stars because the assorted chocolates we got were great and the white chocolate covered oreos were probably the best I've ever had. The buckeyes, however, were not at all good. They didn't even taste like buckeyes, which I am very familiar with and have made with my own hands many times. The filling did not taste a bit like peanut butter. It looked like peanut butter, but tasted like something entirely different. Weird, I know. They would've gotten 4 stars if they had put in even the least bit of effort to be courteous. But they didn't. Bummer. We won't be back & I won't recommend them.
