The Candy Store. 122 Campbell Ave. SE. Roanoke, Va 24011. P: 540.904.5580
Is this not the most cheeriest of storefronts ever?! Yeah, I know! So of course we went inside! We were so excited, Nick and I, to find candies of our youth and Braden and Dalton were just excited to find candy...haha
I had to have an Abba-Zaba and some BB Bats. I remember walking to 7/11 as a kid and buying chocolate, vanilla, strawberry and banana BB Bats when I was a kid whenever I was at my uncle's house. The 7/11 was right on the corner and safe for a kid of about 10 to walk to, back then that is! I also loved Abba-Zaba's. My own kids hadn't even heard of any of these but now are big fans. When we went to the counter to pay the cashier said "You must be from the west coast".... I of course wondered "Why"? and he said because "Abba-Zaba's were a west coast candy. People out east don't know about them." I said "Well yes I am." haha...so anyways...some of you might know the Abba-Zaba and some not. BUT...if you get the chance, definitely try one...they are SO YUMMY!
Nick wanted a Marathon Bar but the man said they don't make those anymore but sold him the Marathon Bar's English cousin, the Curly Wurly which was just like the Marathon Bar!
I had got the boys some Gold Rocks bubble gum...I used to love these too as a kid! Next visit I have to see if they have Flicks Candy. Anyone remember those? Another of my childhood faves. I also loved the bright colored foil tubes they came in.
We'll be back for sure!
