Great candy shop with really sweet people. They were super friendly and accommodating as this annoying New Yorker took a ton of snapshots.

This is one of the most impressive candy stores we have ever seen- dozens upon dozens of barrels overflowing with all things weird, nostalgic and exotic. You'll find it hard to contain yourself so expect to walk out with a lot more than you anticipated.
