Pickle Cotton Candy:

Forget the boring traditional cotton candy and make room for fun and unique cotton candy flavors! This sweet but slightly tart treat will have your pickle lover friend cry tears of joy. They also have a variety of different cotton candy flavors such as Juicy Watermelon and Birthday Cake, so you can stop with the weird look now.

Throwback Candy:

These are a box of either 80's or 90's candies that were popular during that time. Sometimes finding a gift for my mentors or managers is the hardest. But with a gift that will bring nostalgia and great memories, you will be crowned their favorite.

Hawaiian Punch Hat:

Hawaiian Punch brings back memories of hanging out after school at A+ (if you know, you know) with my childhood friends. I really loved this hat due to those nostalgic memories and simple design. It's a perfect gift for the beach, hiking, any age, genders, all of it!

Takis Lollipop with Chamoy

Do you have a foodie friend that is bored since they pretty much tried and ate everything?! Well look no further, I found the perfect stocking stuffer or candy to put in a basket for you! These are Takis chamoy lollipops that have chili powder to dip them in. Think of it as an elevated and spicy Fun Dip. I have never seen these before, and grabbed a few for myself out of excitement.

There is a section of the store dedicated to the widely popular Sour Patch Kids which gave me an automatic sugar rush! The Sour Patch Kid plushies are so adorable and the slip-on shoes are cute and unique.
