My daughters have visited the Freak Lunchboxes in Charlottetown, Halifax and Saint John. They are a great little venue with an expansive selection of sweets and treats. Highly recommend visiting and getting a bag of gummies or jelly beans for your stroll along the downtown.

The Freak Lunchbox is a candy store. They have candy from many different countries. They also have unique items like lunchboxes of course, and giant gummy bears and novelty items. I love this place! It is too bad they do not have a loyalty program.
