Only went into this candy store as I was in the vicinity as these things (tempting as they are) are certainly not good for you. There was a multitude of various sweets (as we say in the UK) and eventually purchased a moderate bag costing...More

It’s fun to be able to go through a candy wonderland and pick anything you want and find every candy of every kind and variety. You pay by the half pound and a small bag can cost you between $20-$30 quickly!
