Inside the Sweet Shoppe directly to your right you will see old time post office boxes, look closely and you can see through the boxes where you can watch the candy makers (employee’s) create the shop’s homemade fudge.  There is also homemade ice cream, a wall of mouth watering candy including jelly beans, jaw breakers, candy buttons, big league chew bubble gum and many more throw back candy items.  After you decide what sweet treat will entice your taste buds, head outside where you can listen to music around a fire pit or try your throwing arm at cornhole or horseshoes.

Hi Krystal - I had no idea that was there, but I won't miss it on my next trip - it sounds like a hoot.
