This place was a must visit for me, being a Breaking Bad fan. I found from Frommers that the blue "crystal meth" in the show was made here so I had to come and get some as souvenirs. Each baggie cost a dollar and contained a card to tell you what it is. I didn't eat it yet as I think it's just sugar. Looks nicer in it's pristine condition.

The shop does a brisk business selling show related T-shirts as well as fudge, which I sampled but didn't buy. Oddly, there were some chocolate penises off to the side. I guess they also make bachelorette party favors.

I recommend The Candy Lady for the best fudge I have ever tasted. The chocolate dipped strawberries are the biggest I have ever encountered, and very fresh.

first thing you walk in you automatically want to go right, because it is so crowded. Well that is an x rated candy room. Then its just packed wall to wall people, when you finally do get to the counter, get your bag of blue rock candy, thats what you came for. Also get dipped cherries and strawberries so good. Then get out. lol.

A real find for the Breaking Bad fan - these guys have jumped on the BB bandwagon and do it justice. You can buy the infamous blue 'meth' candy in baggies, as well as a host of other souvenirs. Take a 3 hr tour and be regaled with tales from people who had a hand in making the show what it is. If you just have a sweet tooth, you will be pleased as well, although you'll be lucky to get a word in edge-wise with all the BB fans in store. This is a must-do when in ABQ.

My son and I went into the candy store because we are Breaking Bad. The Candy Lady was actually taping an interview, but took the time to talk with us and even take pictures with us.
