Olympian Candies in Richmond IN is locally owned and has a reputation for satisfying the sweet tooth.  They carry a large variety of candies to suit anyone’s taste (anything for the diabetics?).  It’s another good place to stop and impress the candy lover in your life.

Other Ideas For A Fun Valentine Weekend:
