Heard about this place for a long time, finally got to go by...what a great experience! The staff are friendly and helpful and the hippie guy is heck-a-funny...He told some lady her pocket fell off and she started looking around on the floor for it???....Hilarious. A great place for the whole family, I know we really enjoyed ourselves and plan to visit on our next trip to old sac
This is not a place for a group outing.We had an awful experience as we entered the store like others have said we were greeted by the kind staff who encouraged us to sample any candy with a blue sign as long as we were in the store it was free so we each took a piece. The candy was very good .we proceeded to the vast array of taffy I guess it looked like we were taking a lot because of the group size but we were just looking at all the types of taffy and the cashier loudly announced that they said a few pieces not every barrel.Needless to say after we were so embarrassed most of the group left .I was going to buy some taffy when one of the workers accused me of stealing candy so I opened my purse to show it was a wrapper and explained that I did not want to throw it on the floor I will never go back it was so embarrassing the costumer service gets an F.
My kids love Candy Heaven, and so do I. There are not many places were you can just wander through sampling the goods. The good here are salt water taffy in almost every flavor imaginable. The prices are good too, which is great because you usually end up buying tons of taffy because you can't decide between all the different flavors.
This is such a fun place to shop in Old Sacramento. The staff is friendly and they not only allow you to, but they encourage you to sample the different taffy flavors as you browse the store. They have so many different flavors, and all we've tried are incredible. Their prices are reasonable too. Yum!
PROS: Child friendly, friendly staff
After enjoyng a nice dinner in Downtown Sacramento, we decided to walk into Candy Heaven. They let you have as many free sample of their candy as you would like as long as you eat them in the store, how nice! Taffy prices are very reasonable and the have a huge selection of candy.
When you enter the store, you are allowed to sample their candy and taffys right out of the barrels and boxes. They have the best selections of taffies, and I always visit them when I need to bring my Pops some Sugar-Free taffy. And the owner is a really great guy. I have no idea what his name is, but he's always in there and really happy and friendly.
Candy Heaven is great. Since it is located in Old Town Sacramento, I like to go shopping at the Downtown Plaza and then walk around Old Town eventually stopping in to Candy Heaven to satisfy my sugar craving. They often give away free samples, where you can try an amazing amount of different candy. My inner 8 year old would have a blast in this store where there are barrels and barrels of different candy to choose from
This store is every kids dream. They have barrels and barrels of candy, and sometimes even let you have FREE samples. Their selection of candy ranges from chocolate to fruity, soft chews to hard candy, and even, yes, BUGS. For all of you who like to eat chocolate covered ants, grasshoppers, worms, and even butterflys this is the candy store for you. But don't worry, not all of the candy is bug candy, most of what they have is "normal" bug free candy. This is the best candy store I've seen, definately recommendable.
