Charleston Candy Kitchen is the perfect sweet spot

We can’t make a visit to the Market area in downtown Charleston without a trip to Charleston Candy Kitchen.

On the corner of East Bay, at 32 N. Market St., the store is a perfect place for lovers of candy and nostalgia.

My kids have always loved to stop in and watch the old-fashioned taffy being made in one corner. Across the room, you can watch as candy makers craft pecan pralines, peanut brittle and chocolate gophers by hand.

It’s hard to find a kid who can resist the barrels and barrels full of individual candy.

And the taffy is everywhere.

You’ll find everything you need to satisfy a sweet tooth -- and even a few gifts to take home.
