What Did We Like About Aunt Mahalia’s
The treats that you can buy from here is stunning. The place has been a staple in the area since 1939 and it shows. Not because the place has candy that has been around since that time period, but because the food that you get from here is amazing. You will notice the candy is going to be well above the normal treats that you would get and often when I was getting some candy from here you can see that it was made with care and the quality that you get is good.
Something else that we really liked is the selection of treats you have from the store. You may think since they are making the candy in the store for the most part. This makes it easier for us to find the candy that we want to eat and know that if they do not have it that it in stock it will most likely be back soon. What else is nice is some of the candies are seasonal and that means you only get them if you are in town during that time period, which is a nice feature as well.
What We Did Not Like About The Shop
Now the one aspect that we did not like, but we can understand because even the candy shops that are outside of Gatlinburg are pricey, is the price. However, as the old saying goes you get what you pay for and this is just one of those times because the quality of the candy that you get from Aunt Mahalia’s is second to none and definitely is candy that you will want to take home with you.
Our Final Thoughts On Aunt Mahalia’s
Candy is one of those items that I always seem to bring home when I am in Gatlinburg. It does not matter what I have at the house, I always seem to buy a lot more candy. However, the quality is good and if you get it from the right place the taste is out of this world and it may make it home from the town. The problem is when you have a place like Aunt Mahalia’s Candy Store in Gatlinburg it is nearly impossible to stop yourself from wanting to buy everything in the store. Overall, this is one candy store that we do recommend going to, but make sure you come full or you could end up with your sweet tooth overpowering your mind when you visit Aunt Mahalia’s Candy Shop.
