If you long for the nostalgia of your childhood favorites, you have to check out this cool candy shop in Manzanita, OR. http://www.manzanitasweets.com/
It's nice to see this location a happy place again. Everyday there a cute, new little dress at the front door, and a list of the featured goodies of the day.
Moon Pies, Wax Lips, Mars Bars...A kids dream!
I found my own favorite Abba-Zaba Bars, and was instantly transported back to walking home from the local Dairy Store, while enjoying my favorite candy in Linda Mar, CA. For the unenlightened, Abba-Zaba Bars are a taffy candy with a peanut butter like center. We won't even discuss the fact that they are a dental disaster waiting to happen...for an 8 year old, you're talking pure bliss!
The nostalgia continues, with cute 50's style aprons, and Unique Clocks
Special Occasion hats...
and a glass counter full of gourmet chocolates! It's definitely worth a stop.
