Mmmm… Mmmm… Mmmm…
Will you take me to Three Georges candy shop?
I won’t stop till I get a lollipop.
So what have you got?
Colorful and creamy.
My oh my, this is so steamy.
Tastes so good, it’s dreamy.
Will I ever get another taste?
I shall make haste.
I don’t want this moment to be a waste.
Before I get too deep. I realized…
I was just asleep…
Three Georges candy shop is a historic building (1866) on the corner of Dauphin and Joachim Streets. It has been one of Mobile, Alabama’s most valued treasures since Georgio Pappalamporous (Pappas) and his two friends Georgio Pope and Georgio Spero opened the store in 1917. The same recipes and high quality techniques used to create those mouth-watering treats over a hundred years ago are in place today. They specialize in Southern delicacies like heavenly hash, caramel, pecan candies and many others, all made by hand. Each chocolate is hand dipped and each box is packed when ordered. Satisfaction is 100% guaranteed.
An old-fashioned soda fountain has been added with daily lunch specials, ice cream, and milkshakes. They also offer tours and demonstrations for groups and field trips.
Satisfaction is 100% guaranteed with no questions asked. If a customer is dissatisfied with any aspect of a product, it will be replaced or money will be refunded.
