Eat Your Way Through This Delicious, One-Of-A-Kind Candy Museum In West Virginia
Do you have a favorite type of candy? We know, we know — it’s hard to choose just one. And it gets even harder after a visit to this one-of-a-kind candy shop tucked away along the narrow streets of Historic Harpers Ferry!
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
True Treats is an award-winning, nationally recognized candy shop located along High Street in Harpers Ferry. It's a cute little shop with a neat storefront...
...but the attractive exterior is nothing compared to the delights awaiting once you pull open the door and step inside!
There, you'll find rows upon rows of candy stacked throughout the store, arranged by type and by year of origin, giving this unique shop the feel of a sweet little candy history museum!
Each piece or package of candy is labeled with a tag that gives a brief history and description of the treat. You can learn all sorts of things you never even thought to wonder about, like the origin of Cherry Cordials.
Or how about Turkish Delight? This best-seller flies off the shelves thanks to all you Chronicles of Narnia fans eager to sample the White Witch's candy of choice.
True Treats also offers candy compilations that make great gifts or samplers for your own and others' education and enjoyment.
Many of these candy compilations are themed around a set time period, allowing you to discover and taste candy popular during various eras as far back as the 1700s. Sign me up for that history lesson!
Of course, you don't have to go back several centuries in your candy tastes at True Treats if you'd rather just head back a couple of decades instead — this versatile shop has got plenty of retro-'90s options, as well.
So next time you are enjoying a stroll through historic Harpers Ferry, stop on by for a chance to try more candy than you ever knew existed. You can also order almost all their products online, shipped right to your door. What a fascinating and delicious museum, don't you think?
You can find this sweet treat shop at 144 High Street in Harpers Ferry. Visit any day of the week from 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. or see their line-up of products on their website

After you’ve sampled all that candy, you’ll definitely want to
climb the many stairs up past these historic attractions to work off your sugar high. Address: True Treats Historic Candy, 144 High St, Harpers Ferry, WV 25425, USA
