74. Big Top Candy Shop

March 15, 2010

Welcome to the Disneyland of Candy Shops – it is a candy lovers’ dream and one of my favorite places to stop. This weather combined with SXSW and now daylight savings makes it the perfect time for evening walks on South Congress.

Everyone in town for SXSW that needs a break from downtown, stroll on over to South Congress and check this out – it is a must! It makes me feel like I have died and woken up with the Golden Ticket to the Wonka Chocolate Factory.

They have everything – all like you would expect from those old time, classic candy shops. This is the perfect solution to your sweet tooth. You feel like you are lost in a wonderland of chocolate, pixi-sticks, gumballs, jellybeans and more – plus countless things that I never knew even existed – chocolate covered bacon anyone?

Know in advance that it is normally crowded but you will not mind waiting – it embodies Austin and the South Congress feel perfectly!

Try it out and you will really understand the meaning of “feeling like a kid in a candy store.” It is a great stop on a date, to get out of the house or to take out-of-towners’.”
