Ah, that is just about right.....to fill with all the sweets one needs to purchase. Where are we

The museum is a treasure of the history of candy making especially of the Gold Bears. And as one travels thru the exhibits, you are able to taste some of Haribo's creations.
At the end of your adventure, there is a wonderful store where you can taste and purchase some of their sweets. Yes, Joe was like the kid in the candy store trying to decide on the perfect treat. Alas, there was no chocolate, but I got my favorite licorice Rotellas. Yum! It is one of my first stops when visiting our area.
Watching people exit the store is another adventure as they have made so many wonderful choices that the bags and boxes become very heavy. Be prepared for lots of fun, treasures and....
