Georgie Lou's Retro Candy is a full service, family-owned candy store, offering a large selection of retro, modern, gourmet, and handmade candy, and a unique collection of pop culture favorites.
Named after the owners' mothers and inspired by their grandparents, Georgie Lou's Retro Candy specializes in thousands of retro and modern candies, glass bottle sodas, handmade chocolates and fudge, and pop culture in the heart of downtown Carlisle. From BB Bats to Turkish Taffy and from Airheads to Warheads, it's easy to find something sweet that'll strike your fancy at Georgie Lou's. They also carry a nice selection of European, Mexican, and Japanese candy.
If the candy doesn't do it for you, then one of their 200 varieties of gross, craft, and nostalgic glass bottle sodas might. Want to try a marshmallow, chocolate, or PB&J soda? They've got'em. If sweets aren't your thing, they have an inspired collection of pop culture gear that celebrates the important music, movies, and moments of your youth. They carry gifts and graphic tees, featuring franchises such as Doctor Who, Mister Rogers, Alice in Wonderland, Star Trek, Star Wars, 1980's teen movies, rock bands, video games, and Harry Potter. Visiting Georgie Lou's is like experiencing a little piece of Hogwarts right in Carlisle, as they carry the largest selection of Harry Potter sweets and gifts in Central Pennsylvania.
Georgie Lou's also creates custom gift boxes and party favors and hosts two downtown-wide kids' events every year--Spooky Saturday, which happens during Halloweekend, and Bunny Hop. And if you just want to come take a gander at their elaborate window displays, they don't mind a bit. People visit downtown specifically to look at them every season, so you might just want to stop by and take a peek.
