What Our Customers Are Saying

If I could give this place 1,000 stars I would. Amazing customer service. The candy is absolutely beautiful from the candy itself to the packaging. My family is huge into history. We actually do 18th century reenacting, and my mom said it was the coolest gift she had ever gotten. Cannot wait to make my next order!

"My dad would by [Moon Pies] and freeze them. He was a loyalist! The running joke in my family was that Dad didn't love his family, for everything he loved, he froze! Twinkies, grapes, all things chocolatey, marshmallows... To this day, I have no idea what a thawed Moon Pie tastes like!

True Treats is a truly unique historic candy experience! A good deal of their candy is based on historically researched recipes from the 1500s to the present. The candy is delicious. If you are in the area, this place is definitely worth a visit.

Loved it! They have treats from every period of history, and they all come with information about how it was used in that period. They have ALL the candy you loved when you were a kid! I came from Florida especially to visit here and I wasn't disappointed. The staff showed the true spirit of West Virginia kindness.

My kids have enjoyed this place for years. Susan, the owner, is chock full of knowledge about candy & candy history. While my husband and I like the historical candy (who knew candied violets taste so good?) the kids love the more contemporary pop rocks, chocolate bars, and lollipops. It's a nice place to stop while you're in Harpers Ferry.
