Sugar High




I really need to kick my bubblegum cigar habit.

No matter how hard I try to deny it, my mind is always on something sweet. You can imagine how happy I was this weekend when Jimmy and I stumbled upon a charming candy boutique. It was the ultimate sugar high. As soon as the door opened, we were greeted by a sugary sweet aroma, and I instantly felt like a kid again. Every space was covered with colorful candies from this decade and decades past. There were chocolate and gum walls and even a section dedicated to movie theater treats. I was most excited to see tin lunch pails and Wrigleys Doublemint gum! We had a great time soaking in the nostalgic feelings of our childhood while other children darted by, clearly immersed in theirs.




Charming old fashion soda bottles.


An entire section dedicated to movie theater candy.




Chocolate anyone?




Tin Lunch Pails!


Even the popcorn is sugary sweet!

  20. What a cool little place you found. My favorite is the old rock candy suckers in places like this. To me that taste like hard cotton candy, especially the pink.
    My Captain, heads for the stinky black licorice every time.
    Glad you had a little fun!

  28. We have a Powell's just a few blocks up and it is a favorite haunt on a cool day (or a warm day or a hot day...you get the idea).

    The Chef and I are mad fiends for the gelato they carry - unique flavors and super yummy!
