Sarris Candies had their grand re-opening last week, after being closed and rejuvenated because of a fire a while back.
Great news: it looks "the same" but also "better". I'm only in Pennsylvania to visit Sarris about twice per year, so I don't have a strong visual memory to compare the before and after. The ice cream shop in the front is pretty much the same. The three candy rooms are brighter and seem more spacious. They completely re-created a brand new castle built of chocolate, and the castle includes a non-chocolate miniature carousel in the center of it.
For children, a visit to Sarris is the equivalent of a Disney or Willy Wonka experience. Adults can appreciate the glitz and sparkly environment, too, knowing that the foundation of the experience is a family-owned business producing excellent, high quality treats that are genuinely special.
In my opinion, Sarris is high-quality candy and ice cream served in a magical store that is a must-try if you're in that area, and is even worth taking a trip detour if you're somewhat nearby. Canonsburg is in southwestern Pennsylvania on I-79 just north of I-70.
