In this old train station turned candy shop, you'll be greeted by the aroma of homemade fudge and three huge glass frames filled high with colorful jellybeans, full of numerous different flavors. Let your taste buds guide you through Sweet Afton's at Gardner Village to bushel baskets of foil-wrapped candy and soft salt water taffy, then past a hutch filled completely with licorices: salty buttons,licorice wheels, baby nibs and Dutch licorice. Free-standing cupboards are filled overflowing with all kinds of treats like drawers full of old-fashioned candy bars like Uno, Sky Bars and Rocky Road or pop rocks.
Though the candy shop feels like you're in mom's kitchen, no one will stop you from reaching into the drawers and picking whatever your sweet tooth craves. Find shelves lined with old-fashioned drinks like Bubble-up. Fill your bag with 12 colors of Sixlets or 48 flavors of Jelly Belly jelly beans, chocolate-covered sunflower seeds, gummy bears in all colors of the rainbow, jawbreakers, chocolate-toffee covered almonds and many varieties of sugar-free candy too.
Don't leave without a package of homemade fudge. Try the salted nut roll: caramel, peanut butter and salty peanuts rolled into vanilla fudge, or chocolate explosion with raisins and nuts, the raisin rum. The chewy praline with caramel and sugared pecans or the mint Oreo, Butterfinger or cookie dough fudges are also yummy. Try the chocolate covered pretzels or in the Fall fresh carameled granny smith apples.
