There’s A West Virginia Shop Solely Dedicated To Historic Candy And You Have To Visit

Most people with a sweet tooth are familiar with modern candy – Snickers, Twix, Skittles, etc. But this little store in Harpers Ferry takes candy to a whole new level. They sell historic candy treats dating back to the 1500s and earlier. Only in this shop will you find a Heath bar just a few steps away from 19th century buttermints.
