The Candy Aisle - Vancouver Candy Heaven!

I love me some sweets. I don't remember ever not being a huuuge fan of sugar. We didn't have much junk food in the house when I was younger (my mom bought us pretzel sticks for our school snacks, instead of Fruit By the Foot) (I effing hate pretzels, Mom), but we diiid have a sugar bowl. #WINK! My mom would catch me sneaking spoonfuls of sugar from that bowl alllll the time. And if you invited me over to your house to play, you just better hope your family didn't have a candy jar. Because if so, that's where you could find me chilling. Mmm... mini Reeses Peanut Butter Cups and M&Ms.... Also, obviously my allowance was spent on Fun Dips.

Well fast forward to zee present and ummm you still can find me chilling around the candy bowl at the party. Hey, some things you just don't grow out of. So when I come upon a legit candy store, it's like my Graceland. Even just looking at all the candy is a good time for me. Fortunately, there is an incredible candy store a mere .3 miles from my door! #Diabetes

The Candy Aisle on 4th Ave in Vancouver is the place to be, if you're looking to go into a sugar coma. You can find candy here from all over the world!

They've got a whole wall lined with those bins of candy that you can scoop out with a tiny shovel. Mix 'n match whatevaaaa!

(There is also a smaller section of $2.49/100g candies you can scoop!)

Here's one of those "candy store staples" that I find so fun to just look at - an M&M's mixing station:

These cute mason jars that you can buy and fill up with candy as a gift:

A substantial amount of Pez dispensers to choose from, plus a register area that's set up like a cotton candy fair tent:

And if you go to The Candy Aisle be sure to look up...

You may be able to find some of these candies for cheaper elsewhere, but you're not going to have as much fun. I bop into The Candy Aisle when I'm feeling extra feisty. I love to choose a small bagful of goodies from the $1.99/100g wall - especially the mini Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, Rockets (the exact equivalent of American Smarties), mini York Peppermint Patties, and those little pastel after-dinner mints. Mmm...

Alright, all this talk of candy is making me hungry. Excuse me while I go scoop myself some ice cream...

  1. I love going into candy shops just because they're so cute and fun! I'm pretty picky about the candy I like though haha. I love that they have a mini M&M wall like the huge one at M&M World in Vegas! Also that's cool that that whole wall is the same price so you can mix and match!

  2. I LOVE candy stores!! And this one looks awesome! If I'm ever in Van, I'll definitely be checking it out!!


Leave me some love!
