It's an awesome place for candy and even some other fun party stuff. I wish I had found this place when I was a kid. It's a very cheerful little spot with bright colours on the walls. It makes an awesome atmosphere. And yes if you're looking for a certain type of candy I'm sure you'll find it here. The pricing isn't too bad either. Stop in here and the rest of your day will be the best day of your whole life
