12/4    Where do people buy those candies that reads "It's a boy!" or "It's a
        girl!"  Any pleaces in the San Mateo or Fremont area?  Thanks.
        \_ Preston's Candy & Ice Cream
           1170 Broadway, Burlingame, CA
           they have a lot of nice candy too, in addition to the gimmicky
           baby candy.  I recommend the honeycomb, rocky road, and the
           hot cocoa kits.              -brain preston

              you can get them online too.  They are a bit pricey but <shrug>

           is really, really awesome.  I've seen "It's a g/b" cigars there.

        \_ Go to SF, they have "Congrats, it's a gay boy!" cards.
           \_ And in The South, you can get "Congrats, it's a Redneck" card.
        \_ Thanks for all the responses.  Party Land in San Mateo carries it,
           but the girl kind is currently out of stock.  Party America in Union
           City has both the boy kind and the girl kind in stock.  -- OP

Fern D San Francisco, CA 4 star rating 12/01/2007 This place will bring back fond memories of when you were that kid in a candy store, captivated and overwhelmed by the oodles of candy, colors and sweet aromas. They did a nice job with merchandising, and it's really fun to look at all the candy in the jars and on the shelves. J B San Francisco, CA 5 star rating 10/30/2007 My candy store as a kid was Marie's in Connecticut and we rode our bikes there for Pez, licorice, candy necklaces, all the penny candy stuff. And there really was a Marie, a sweet old lady we all loved. Somehow The Candy Store brings it back despite lacking the old wood floors and walls. Maybe it's the big jars and bright colors and nice people. I remember when Marie had to sell her place - the sign said 'For Sale By Owner' and my little brother started crying because he thought whoever bought it would buy Marie, too! Ann L Fremont, CA 5 star rating 11/24/2007 The Candy Store is Awesome. The owners: Diane & Brian Campbell are very nice and Diane is passionate about candy! The store is pretty small but they have tons of candies from all over the world it seems. Ones I got: Bistro Bar Chocolat Moderne NY Parlez Pistache -dark chocolate bar filled w/ pistachio praline $8 - really good. Zotter Marc de Champagne bar $8-made in Austria -just ok The chocolate olives (good) & some French River Stones (ok). but you can spend more or less depending on what you get. Others recommended items: fleur de sel licorice Licorice from Holland, Kats, Beehive, Chalk, Grottnennska? organic Coco Lux chocolates Did u read the book "Candy Freak" by Steve Almond? If u did he mentions many rare candy bars and you can get some of them here. FYI: The Candy Store is doing a Candy Tasting including licorice chalk & chocolate olives on Tues. Dec 4 7-9pm for JCCSF (Jewish Community Center of SF) Members $5/Public $7. Jackie B San Francisco, CA 5 star rating 10/31/2007 This store is a great addition to the neighborhood. I love when you can tell that a store exists because the owner has a true passion about what they sell. Just thinking about the sour watermelons makes my mouth water. Matahari F San Francisco, CA 5 star rating 10/30/2007 When I saw this place open in my neighborhood a few months back, my jaw dropped. I pulled my boyfriend in to the candy emporium that had suddenly appeared on the block of my coffee spot, and I embarked on a magical, sugar filled, nostalgic back-flip in to my past. My life as a kid, spent mostly living for the summers in a beach town on the South shore of Massachusetts called "Nantasket," were filled with so many lovely memories; long, slightly breezy-filled beach days, challenging and formidably cold foamy waves, and sandy-cucumber and tuna sandwiches (with no crust) with cups of icy grape-juice from the thermos my mom, a young beach-lover herself, was always around to administer. Our brains shifted gears to auto-pilot and we would -without discussion- make a bee-line -on our trusty bikes- (mine: a sparkly purple Schwinn with a sparkly silver banana seat, cards in the spokes and streamers screaming from the ends of the handles bar grips) to our personal house of worship- a funny, asymmetrical, brightly orange painted house that possessed a face fashioned out of windows (for eyes) and a door (for the mouth) called Joel's Penny Candy Store. Squirrel Nut Zippers, B-bats, wax bottles filled with colored liquid drinks, licorice whips, foot long taffy, candy button strips, Zotz, Bulls eye's, chocolate ice cubes, Swedish fish, flying saucers, wax lips, wax vampire teeth and long red wax fingernails on wax fingertips, all for a penny a piece! The design at The Candy Store is lovely, more adult like, serene almost, and thankfully, less over sensory stimulation, while the contents of Joel's penny Candy (and more) are well stocked and appreciated. The owners gracious, generous and extremely passionate about their wares. The prices are, well, above penny candy prices, but the memories and the responses I have gotten from people for whom I have fashioned tailored packages to, as gifts that say "remember?" Nate C San Francisco, CA 5 star rating 10/30/2007 alright the candy does cost more then lets say Walgreen's or k-mart. and if you think about it, is anything cheaper then Walgreen's or k-mart? if you are going to write a review about this store just to say they are pricey DON'T! they have everything you had when you were a kid and more! Zelda K San Francisco, CA 5 star rating 09/22/2007 I want to live in this store. I was just driving up Polk on my way back from a lingerie construction class that I am taking at the waterfront, and it is a lovely rainy gray day. And as I was driving I saw a sign "The Candy Store" is all that it said, and it had an arrow and some cute bubble designs. Of course I HAD to follow the sign and come to a screeching halt when I saw this store. Tiny with white walls and so clean and minimalist and nothing but candy. I knew it would be overpriced because it's in Russian Hill. I used to live in that area, so I know that rent is outrageous. So I don't blink an eye when I go into the cute little boutiques in the high end areas and the prices are much higher than drug stores. I am willing to pay it, because I want to support beautiful little individually owned stores like this one instead of big corporate low priced places like Walgreen's, Target, Rite Aid, etc. The first item that caught my eye was lollipops in the shape of candy apples. I got my boyfriend and I some handmade chocolate filled orange cream barber poles, which I haven't tried yet because I want to share the experience with him. And I got an 8 year old relative who is having a birthday a bag filled with candy necklace, candy watch, zots, candy lipstick and chocolate filled orange cream barber pole. The guy behind the counter wrapped it all up in a bag with an aqua blue ribbon and put that in The Candy Store's signature bag with some aqua and white tissue. And some candies from the South of France that look like river rocks. Honestly, I don't think I could venture to try some of the candy. Olive shaped and colored candies in a martini glass, made of almonds and chocolate are adorable, but I don't care for almonds. I wish I was a bit more adventuresome with my candy taste. Anyway, I just adore this store and I hope it stays in business. We need more great little stores like this instead of cheap crap like Walgreen's! I am going to go back and get a gift certificate for one of my job references that always pulls through for me. San Francisco, CA 5 star rating 09/06/2007 Jerry Seinfeld has a bit about young kids and how the only thing running through their heads all the time is 'get candy, get candy, get candy, get candy, get candy' . I was like that as a child, and being allergic to chocolate I took particular liking towards sour and weird candy like Nerds, Button Candy, Pez . So THE Candy Store was obviously a dream come true no matter what. HOWEVER, the lady at the counter was seriously the nicest/friendliest/coolest/most welcoming candy shop lady ever. She's everything you'd imagine a candy store lady to be. I was expecting her to pull out a wand and whisk me into the fantasy world of Willy Wonka's chocolate factory (where I'd obviously instantly burst into hives and die from a horrible allergic reaction). but instead she let me sample everything and I spent about $50 on candy. nicole c San Francisco, CA 4 star rating 09/05/2007 I spent $28 on delicious non run-of-the-mill candy. Was it a struggle to not jump over the counter and maul the candy clerks so I could fill my own bag of candy? Douggers M San Francisco, CA 5 star rating 10/01/2007 I Love stopping here when I'm shopping on Polk. For some reason shopping gives me cravings for Kookaburra licorice. The woman who works there, I am pretty sure she is the owner is always so nice. Bill S San Francisco, CA 5 star rating 08/25/2007 Willie Wonka walks among us, she's the owner, and her name is Dianne. And Dianne offers free samples of just about everything in the store. Ladies and gentlemen, you read the above line correctly. wendella a San Franc...
