As far back as I can remember Candy in all forms has shaped my life. The rush of the sugary sweet goodness, the tang and tartness of the sours, to the rush that is Pixie Stix. So having Little Man try his first UFO as his first Candy in the candy store I was excited.Maybe more than excited as UfO's are 1 of the 2 of my most favourite candies since early childhood. So maybe Mommy was hoping the sour goodness in the centre of the wafers would cause his first sour face:) )
We managed to shoot his first taste, bummer no crazy sour face ..
From one CANDYHOLIC to any others out there whether you physically go to the store or buy on-line , you will never find a better place to satisfy that sweet tooth. Plus if they don't have it and you want it and it exists out there somewhere ; they will find it and bring it in for you . Plus from the moment you step foot into the store , you become a friend, closer to family, not just a customer.
The fact that there has only been a surface touch to what lies ahead, I am honoured , privileged and ready for this Candy Coaster ride. Not only have they brought me and my boys in with open arms , they have entrusted me to be a part of this beginning Candy Funhouse Craziness .
You will never know who might be in for a visit , what the walls will look like , how the candy is arranged. Each day is an ever evolving array of the mystical Wonderland. The #CandyFunhouse is ready for you to explore . And if you are like me , I bring different people I know in all the time just as an excuse to keep going back in there.

We loved going to the store for candies called Mojos. They were little rectangle chewy candies that came in different flavours and they were 2 for a penny. (I guess that shows my age.) ;-) Pixie Stix were another favorite that my mom banned from the house so we ate them on the way home so she wouldn't know. I don't think we tricked her though because they dyed your tongue.ReplyDelete

Chocolate - usually peanut butter cups!ReplyDelete
I loved Bottle Tops!ReplyDelete
Bonkers were my favourite! I also really like Koo-Koo Taffy :)ReplyDelete
A candy that I think was called asteroids or astro? It was tiny cookie bits covered in chocolate and a candy coating packaged in a purple box. Its really not all the old, but i may have the name wrong. Been googling the heck out of it and just can't seem to find them, but they were delicious!ReplyDelete
