As a child I visited the candy kitchen and still remember the great Divinity. I,now, visit Gatlinburg every other year and this was my year to return. It was better than ever. The apples were crisp and the service was wonderful. I would highly recommend going out of your way for a visit. You will definitely feel at home.
I have the fondest of memories of Ole Smoky Candy Kitchen. It was the first job I ever had in 1965. Peggy Dych hired me and my best friend to work in the Upper Shop. The second summer I worked for David Dych,her very handsome son, in The Village. I worked in the summer and some week-ends while in college.
I had the pleasure of working with some of the best fellow employees one could ever hope for; Ken, Woody, David, Jessie, Harold, I remember them fondly to this day. And the best part of all, we could sample the candy, which was the very best made, and the turtles are better from Ole Smoky than any candy store I've ever been in.
To this day, and that has been over 40 years, I still smile when I drive by and always try to stop in to buy candy to bring home.

I�m normally not one to be won over by a commercial establishment, but that place took the cake. I�ve never felt so secure and at peace in a business. I believe "anachronism" best sums up the Ole Smoky Candy Kitchen.
It is beautiful, and it radiates a sense of magnanimousness.
My family has visited Gatlinburg 4 years straight, and each time, we make it a point to visit the Ole Smoky Candy Kitchen. I need to get my fix on the fresh taffy!
My favorites include vanilla, strawberry, and banana. My kids like the all, but I guess the dreamsicle (orange and cream) are the mainstay.
We truly enjoy watching them make the taffy and fudge right before our eyes, and it's a real treat to get a sample right off the wrapping machine.
So, when in Gatlinburg, make it a point to visit the shop...you won't forget or regret it!
For 20 years my husband and I have been buying chocolate here. When we arrive in town the first thing we do is get the chocolate and a half gallon of milk. On our way out of town we have to stop again and bring back enough to give to friends usually 5-6 pounds. They love it. We freeze it to eat later for ourselves.
every year (sometimes more) a must stop is the candy kitchen for truffles. Any flavor is A real treat. I am so glad this place is too far away for me to stop by whenever, because I could eat these every day.
Some of my family is from Knoxville and as I child I remember by Grandfather ordering boxes of the assorted hand dipped chocolate candy from Old Smoky to hand out to each family member every Christmas. It is the best candy you'll ever taste! The hand dipped chocolate is to die for and alot better than Godiva!! Since Grandad's death, I try to carry on the family tradition and order some hand dipped chocolates to hand out at Christmas. Its brings back so many good memories....and if a friend of mine goes to Gatlinburg, I have them hook me up with some candy from Old Smoky Candy Kitchen!
Simply the best ever!
I loved this place as a kid...every time that we went to Gatlinburg, me and my family always made sure that we stopped at the Ole Smoky Candy Kitchen to get some taffy! I loved all of the different kinds of candy they had, and loved watching the taffy being made right there in the store...the vacation wasnt complete unless we made a stop here! I loved it and can't wait to take my kids here someday.
When you buy candy from Ole Smoky Candy Kitchen you are buying a bit of Gatlinburg's history. It's the original candy store in Gatlinburg and the BEST!!!! The employees are quick, helpful, and very nice. I'm originally from Gatlinburg. So when I visit, I will not leave town till I stop in and buy some chocolate and taffy. Don't miss out!!!
