Time Out Says

This is a candy store designed to stoke baby boomer nostalgia—cries of “remember these?!” ring out among the shelves. The walls are lined with old-fashioned candy jars filled with licorice, sours, chocolates and gummies, and displays are piled with sugary memories like candy buttons, Pixy Stix, Necco wafers, Big League Chew, Fun Dip, wax bottles and more. Owner Diane Campbell has a sweet spot for Swedish licorice—herring, bears, Scotties, coins and more—as well as oddball candies from the UK. This may be the only shop in the city where gummies shaped like chicken feet are in high demand.
