This store proves that rock n' roll and candy go hand in hand. Selling old school candies such as chocolate ice cubes, and new favorites like M&M's and taffy's is just the beginning. This colorful and exciting establishment hosts a skate board designed lounge, sugar inspired clothing and accessories, and more. Those who have a sweet tooth won't be drawn just to the candy, but to the graffiti and vinyl covered walls. On Saturday's crafts of all types are taught to the kids. Open seven days a week. You can even have a kids birthday party there. Monday through Saturday 11 am-6 pm, and Sunday's 12-6 pm.

Best New Candy Shop 2011
With five kids between them, a pair of suburban moms launched this graffiti-tagged, ultra-cool space with its own skateboard half-pipe. Wait—isn’t that kinda like a gym teacher hawking video games? “Candy always makes people happy,” says co-owner Trish Forhman, “and whether we own this store or not, kids are going to be eating it. At least we are looking at it from a parent’s eye, too.” But moms or not, no one’s enforcing the candy equivalent of last call here—and there’s lots to test your willpower, including an array of nostalgic, retro goodies like Bonomo Turkish Taffy and Valomilk bars; a complete 21-color M&M bar; a full Jelly Belly assortment; and bulk candy, like chocolate-covered Gummi Bears in old-fashioned glass jars. Those with more sophisticated palates will swoon over the gourmet case spotlighting such artisanal offerings as caramel with sea salt and chocolate-dipped s’mores.
