We enjoy stopping here for our favorite candy and tour around the outside. Always discover something we missed in prior visits. Over 12,000 elephants on display

Always saw it and decided to stop. Candy, candy and more candy! Some of the old fashioned candy. You can get carried away, buying it by the pound. I recommend everyone to stop and see for themselves. They also have som souviners to purchase.
