Looking for a place to take the kids for a special treat?  Or, maybe you're ready for a nostalgic trip back to your childhood.  You will put smiles on everyone's faces with a stop to Witt's End Candy Emporium in Bellevue, Kentucky.

Witt's End Candy has been open since Memorial Day weekend 2014 and is nestled into the Historic Fairfield Avenue Shopping District.  The shopping district is filled with one-of-a-kind shops, restaurants and art galleries where you'll discover some eclectic gifts and fun treasures. Throughout December, each store along Fairfield Avenue has part of the text from How the Grinch Stole Christmas lettered on their store windows.  As you stroll from store to store, you can read the whole story.  You'll see the Grinch, along with Cindy Loo Who and Max the dog, at Witt's End. 

Witt's End specializes in hard-to-find candy. Shoppers from every generation will see candy they remember from their childhood.  On a recent visit, there were squeals of laughter and excitement when groups of shoppers entered the store and found candy they hadn't seen in decades!
