First when my daughter was 2 she was extremely scared of the bunny at the mall. We heard you had one and thought we would try coming and checking it out. She loved your bunny and sat right on the bench with her.
Today we brought our kids and friends of ours came with their children. They have tried a few places with their 4 year old to see santa. I suggested they try the candy mansion as we have always had a good experience. Their son loved your santa, he even went and sat on him.

The main ingredients are sugar, butter, and milk. Here at the Hebert Candy Mansion we still make it the old fashioned way; by hand in small batches in our copper kettles. We love fudge, so we’ve decided to put together some fun facts about it for you to enjoy.
