  • A fun place. If you have ever gone you should. Locally owned and operated. Good people that love what they do. Frozen hot chocolate is awesome. All kinds of popcorn made in house. Ekletic choices of candy you can find anywhere else. Super cool building.
  • The guy that works here is super nice!!! He explained a lot of things to me and my boyfriend and he didn't need to. Inside the castle is amazing... Lollipops, candies, SANTA CLAUS 🎅 hall of fame, BEST hot chocolate ever and much more. We need more places like this and more customer service like that.. Because of what that guy told us we look forward to come back during Christmas!
  • Cute place to visit!! Tons of retro and new candies and a ton of PEZ selections. I also love their frozen hot chocolate.
  • If you're in Santa Claus, IN, this quaint little "castle" should be a must-stop on your list of places to visit. Candy is in their name for good reason. You'll find several rooms full of it: Modern sweets, classic, harder-to-find goodies, and even a room full of Pez. Flavored popcorn and taffy are here, too. And if you want something non-edible, choose from a selection of Christmas books, shirts, and ornaments. You won't find nearly the selection you can find at the Christmas Store about a mile away, but it's still worth checking out. But this place is best known for a unique treat you won't find anywhere else: Frozen hot cocoa. Topped with a generous dollop of whipped cream, it's an absolute must on your visit. It's rich, delicious, and especially refreshing if you're visiting during the warmer months. There's even an "Avalanche" challenge if you think you can down a mammoth-sized version of the concoction. There are tables in the main room with the counter where you can sit and enjoy your treats along with your frozen hot cocoa. Christmas tunes playing over the speakers completed the whole Yuletide-themed experience. My only issues would be that the back room is too small, and the circular room just before it needs better lighting. But they're minor quibbles in the long run. Overall, Santa's Candy Castle is worthy of a stop on your visit to the area. It's a great place to slow down, grab a table, sip a frozen hot cocoa, and browse their huge selection of candy and other edibles. Highly recommended.
  • Amazing candy store chestnuts roasting by an open fire outside was an experience I'll never forget everyone should experience this at least once in their life
