Candy Addict

A little while ago, I heard about a store opening on Mill Avenue, a hip and happenin' street for college kids. I'm not sure if I'm a hip individual, but the street reminds me a little of the hustle and bustle of China, so I like visiting. 

This store is a candy store amid a street of bars and sometimes, hobos. 


But once you walk in, boy is it a candy store! From candy that you see in the grocery store, to the rare candy you had that one time when you went to visit Germany, to Wonka candy... they have it all in every flavor.



And it's all organized brilliantly. I'd insert a joke about a kid in a candy store but that's way redundant. 


The shop owner is an escapee from Silicon Valley who came here to run a family friendly candy shop. Talk about living the dream! Success there and entrepreneurship here. 

He was an extremely friendly guy and I asked him what was the most unique piece of candy he had. He showed me....




Um. Wow. Yeah, that's unique alright! I don't even know how you eat those. 

I walked out with some yummy chocolaty confections. 






I kinda have a thing for white chocolate. 

Do you like candy?

  1. I love white chocolate. I will always favor dark chocolate a little bit more, but white chocolate is SO good.

    This store is a dream come true for me. If I ever visited, I don't think I would ever leave.

  3. I lol at the kid in a candy store joke. Imagine saying "I felt like a kid in a candy store at Candy Addict".

    I've eaten one of those insect lollipop. That one was a mealworm beetle larva. It was meant as a birthday dare lollipop given to my sister by her friends. She dared me to eat and so I sucked till the larva part and it was fried or baked or something and tasted like peanut.

    Ok I hope I haven't given you a negative impression of me up till this point. =)

    YUM!

  22. Bonnie - I think I honestly love all sorts of chocolate. White, Dark, milk... even orange.

    Jo - eep. I guess if it tasted like peanut, it's okay. But still! I don't want that mixed with my yummy.

    Eileen - I've never had chocolate covered gummy bears. That sounds amazing.
