candy is dandy

candy is dandy, liquor is quicker, but candy smokes beat 'em all!


leff and i went to wayne's candy company (164 e carolina, memphis, tn)this morning. it merits a wowohwowohwowohwow!!! and a few OMG!!!!!s!

wayne's is primarily a candy distribution center but they're open to the public mon-fri 6 am-3:45 pm and 6 am-9:45 am on sat.

they sell mainly in bulk and it is CHEAPCHEAPCHEAP!!! in addition to the regular things like m&m's and reese's they've also got candy cigs


and powedered fruit candy


just to name a few of their many, many things

the smaller candy companies were pretty well represented. i found a box of MALLO BARS!!!! for $20, but i didn't have the cash on me. (they only accept checks, cash and i think money orders, so don't even bother with the debit card.)

oh! i also saw strawberry moon pies!! and both kinds of goo goo clusters!! and some kinds of candy that i haven't seen since i was teeny tiny!!

am i in love with wayne's? you bet your sweet bippy i am!! i can't wait to go back!

In the u.k. they are'nt allowed to call them Sweet Cigarettes anymore. They are called Candy Sticks but rather obviously look like cigarette packets.

hi, michael!

i was really surprised to find the candy cigarettes here as well! the packaging was changed in the '80s (??)for the same reason as it was changed in the u.k.
