The Real Candy LandUpon crossing the doorway of this wondrous place, I was instantly a kid again, gawking at all things sweet and thrilled by the fact that, as an adult, I no longer had to ask permission to get whatever I wanted. The shelves here teem with gourmet candies and treats from another era. Looking for those pixie sticks? Top shelf by the front door. Gourmet chocolate? Check out the entire wall behind the counter. Bubble gum cigarettes? Bottom shelf. I was there only once, but already I have a memory that will last a lifetime.
