so after the fun evening at onesipkim, i headed out to my fabulous parking spot right in front and spied this fun-looking shop right across the street:
OSK had told me about it a while back, but i'd forgotten all about it. and when i realized that it wasn't too late, i skipped right over to check it out.
oh mah gah, i didn't know what to look at first. it was totally the result of galco's and willy wonka doing the nasty - every kind of soda known to man, plus a dizzying assortment of sweets.
truly, it was incredible. they carry a crapload of imported candy. fantastic, not-available-in-the-states japanese kit kats:
an old favorite that the teen and i both love, complete with edible wrapper:
i've not tried this, but the name of it always makes me snicker:
and my beloved hello kitty is represented, too.
there's nostalgic candy (i love me some valomilks, but they're not easy to find):
an incredibly vast selection of imported british candy:
i always wonder what about this candy bar is so "not for girls." hmph.
and a couple of items that make me think of one of my favorite twirlies.
predictably, mr. wonka is present:
and there are a few silly novelties too, like this:
i managed to get out of there $6.37 later, with just one package of imported kit-kats and a couple of british candy bars that i'd forgotten i liked. but i predict a return visit - likely lots of them, considering how close this store is to dots. yikes.
damn my sweet tooth, anyway.
