This popular candy shop has a bouncy pop soundtrack for sweet tooths perusing its rows of Lucite bins, where cute packaging reigns supreme. Donan’s strawberry-caramel candies are in baby-pink boxes decked with smiling strawberries; little koala bears smile on shiny green bags carrying Lotte’s chocolate-filled cookies. There are also savory goods such as barbecue-flavored wheat crackers ($1.95), mushrooms by the scoop ($15 for half-pound), and vacuum-fried green beans ($10 for half-pound). Coolers hold fizzy Asian soft drinks adorned with cartoon fruits ($1.95).
