Fun place to go in and look around. Kids will love it, lots of candy and odds & ends. I enjoyed looking at the different items. This won't take up a lot of time.

A very very cool store with a great selection of candies and other trinkets. The staff are incredibly friendly and even with a little spillage it wasn't a problem. Also... really enjoyed the treats!

We stopped by looking for wine gums. Found them but a handful were $6 from the bulk and they weren't great. Store is worth dropping by - unique!

This place had some interesting items. Candy everywhere! If u want some sweets while walking around downtown, then this is a great place to go. Prices are a bit steep.

Be sure to stop in and pick up some candy at the Freak Lunchbox. If you grew up eating candy in the 70's, 80's or 90's, you're sure to find one of your favourites. Check it out!

Name of the business did not tell me what it was about, but wow it was popular. Packed with people looking for sweets, and unique gag gifts. Picked up some unique bulk candy and items for the family.
