If you have a sweet tooth, you may have met your match. Although they call themselves an "Itsy Bitsy Candy Shoppe," Oh Lolli Lolli has more sweets, treats and aw-worthy cuteness than any one person can handle on their own. Good thing for you, they let you bring your friends.

You can start with the wall of bulk candies, lined with large glass containers displaying a rainbow of gummies, licorice chews, jawbreakers, sours and, a personal blast from the past, 20 different colors of Sixlets. Or get your chocolate fix from their counter of milk and dark chocolate confections. With so many decisions, you may just want to go with the most popular items in the store. Adults love the red velvet chocolate cherries, while the younger customers flock to the chocolate covered gummy bears.

While this is definitely a kid's dream come true, there are plenty of nostalgic treats for adults, as well. You'll get a kick (and a sugar high) out of the wax bottles, Turkish taffy, Mary Janes, Chick-o-Sticks, Black Cows, Sugar Daddies and more. You can enjoy that "kid in a candy store" feeling at any age.
