As Charles M. Schultz said, "All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt." (Especially when you're on vacation!) I've known more than one adult (myself included) who happily entered a candy store and left with a bag of candy full of flavors reminiscent of childhood. Candy stores make people happy, and Montana's Yellowstone Country is full of some fine ones. So mark your maps, and stop in as you venture through these quaint mountain towns.

Nostalgic, old-time candies, hand-made treats, and huckleberry originals fill this historic building in downtown Red Lodge. Be sure to check out their selection of fudge flavors!
