Yes, the Niagara Falls are awesome and very impressive, And yes, we had a blast on The Maid of the Mist boat defying the forces of nature. But we were really disappointed to see how large crowds, tourist shops and Las Vegas buildings have taken over this nature’s wonder.
However, amidst all this commercial force we’ve discovered a little hidden gem: Reg’s Candy Kitchen
Reg is a truly modest guy, who’s been making and selling fudge for over 38 years. We were touched by his authenticity and wondered how you can stay so humble after dealing with spoiled, demanding, hasty tourists year after year.
He made a marvelous maple & walnut milkshake and politely explained what an icecream float is. And even though he questioned my choices he served my drink with a smile and secretly chuckled about this silly Dutch girl ordering a Dr. Pepper float with Cookie-dough ice-cream (the’re both my favourites, so don’t blame a girl for trying).
So if you’re visiting Niagara Falls make sure you pay a visit to Reg!
Reg’ Candy Kitchen is located directly under the Rainbow Bridge on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls
