Walking into Sugar Mountain is every kids fantasy and maybe a few adults as well. You can find lots of retro candy from your childhood that you probably haven’t thought of in decades. For me it was Nerds, Elephant pink popcorn, the sugary goodness of Fun Dip, and the blast from the past of Freshen Up — the gum that squirts in your mouth when you bite it. Walk a little further and there’s Big League Chew and Pop Rocks with a comforting sign that says ‘No Mikey’s stomach didn’t blow up’ quashing the rumour that Mikey from the Life cereal commericals died while eating pop rocks and drinking Coke. Good to know as I grab my chocolate pop rocks and lemon lime Pop Shoppe.
