  1. Had the pleasure of making candy bars at Sweet Pete’s a few weeks ago and it was fun! I was in awe of the decor. That’s almost as interesting as the candy flavors. I stopped and pondered those chocolate bacon pretzels. It’s for sure next time I’ll try them. Be sure to get a bowl of ice cream and take a good look at who may be your server. What a charming young man who is well on his way to success in any sales field he chooses. After watching the “Pete/Marcus” story, it was a pleasure to see what they’ve created.

  2. My son’s class came here on a field trip today. They enjoyed this experience, however…a 9 year old boy was allowed to purchase a cigarette butt! Not cool!
