Review of Fuzziwig's Candy Factory in Prospect

After a trip to Henry's Ark with Louisville Mommies, I joined some friends and Louisville Family Fun readers at the new Fuzziwig's Candy Factory in Prospect for some treats!  It is conveniently located off of Hwy 42 right over the Oldham county line.  Since they open at 11am, it was a perfect time for us after our morning outing!

The entire store just plain made me happy!  It is really inviting, clean and colorful.  My kids' faces lit up the minute they walked in the door.  Since it was our first trip to the store, I encouraged my kids to take it slow and look at everything before they decided on their special treat.  The store offers candy (homemade, packaged, scoop-able, specialty), beverages and Dippin' Dots treats!

We walked around the entire shop. They have a large selection of fun pez dispensers, candy novelties and some toys. Half of the store walls are covered with candy bins for scoop-able candy. There are so many choices! Sugar free, gummy, chocolate, sour, taffy etc!  I liked browsing the retro candy section.  They also have displays full of special chocolate treats like truffles, delicious covered pretzels and oreos, dipped apples and my choice selection: Kentucky Crunch, which was incredible!  (rice crispies, marshmallows, peanut butter, white & milk chocolate, & chocolate chips in one big dollop!!!)  My kids each got a small bag of candy and I got the Kentucky Crunch and it was a little over $7.

I did not try the fudge, but my friends told me that they tried it and it is wonderful and creamy!  They make it in the store, so you know it is fresh.  Honestly, there are many thing in that show that I want to try.

They have a nice area of tables and chairs with a children's movie playing.  My kids sat and enjoyed some of their treats and I was able to chat with my friend.  That's a rare occurrence in a candy store!  They also have a small game room to which they are adding a few arcade games and they have a back room for birthday parties.  The owner said they can customize your parties and the kids can make candies or do other activities in the back; basically: they are flexible!

I have a feeling that Fuzziwig's Candy Factory is going to become regular vocabulary in my home. I can see this place being a wonderful reward for my children or a place to celebrate.  I think a box of treats would make for a really nice gift for teacher also!  I might just have to become a regular.
