From BB Bats to Turkish Taffy and from Airheads to Warheads, it's easy to find something at Georgie Lou's Retro Candy store in Carlisle that will strike your fancy from among our 1000+ kinds of candy. We specialize in nostalgic candy that will spark childhood memories alongside modern sweets kids will love. We also carry European, Mexican, and Japanese candy, and we make our own fudge, bark, chocolate pretzels, and other specialty treats.
Due to COVID, our soda selection is very much depleted. If the candy doesn't do it for you, then one of our 200+ varieties of gross, craft, and nostalgic glass bottle sodas just might. Want to try a marshmallow, chocolate, or PB&J soda? We've got those. Maybe your thing is cream soda or classic Sarsaparilla--we've got those, too. Perfectly chilled bottles of Japanese Ramune, Cheerwine, Nehi, Jones, Frostie, Ozell's, Gross Gus, Avery's, and more await you.
Sweets not your thing? Then come check out our pop culture section that celebrates the important music, movies, and moments of your youth. We carry gifts and graphic tees, featuring DC and Marvel Comics, Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Mister Rogers, Bob Ross, Alice in Wonderland, Rosie the Riveter, The Wizard of Oz, Disney, Star Trek, Star Wars, 1980’s teen movies, rock bands, classic video games, and many others.
We also specialize in Harry Potter items here at Georgie Lou's--we have Carlisle’s largest selection of Wizarding World candy and gifts by far. We carry Chocolate Frogs, Chocolate Wands, Jelly Slugs, Butter Beer Soda, and other Potter-themed sweets. We also have Harry Potter magnets, mugs, purses, bags, t-shirts, stickers, pins, journals, playing cards, pens, stationary, and more.
And, we don’t even care if all you do is come gander at our award-winning store windows. People come in off the street to comment on them, so you really might want to stop by to see them. Sure, it’d be great if you picked up a Duran Duran t-shirt or Pickle Juice soda while you’re here, but we aren’t really big on high pressure sales, so you can do you while you’re in our store.
We also host two downtown-wide events each year. And if you’ve ever dreamed of having a candy store all to yourself, you can do that by hosting parties, bus tours, company mixers, and fundraisers at our store. We can also do on-site events, deliver gift boxes (even to Dickinson College HUB boxes), and create custom fudge flavors and party favors.
