Very cool to me, shop selling various bagged and bulk Asian candies, Jelly Bellies and toys.

Impressive selection of gummi candies including Asian flavors like guava, litchi, guava-strawberry.

There were crazy eggs, dinosaur eggs, xtreme air heads, tomato candy, hot cracker shrimp, rice cracker creamy candy, jumbo sweet plum, olive with seed candy, juicy red roses.

There were some sugared dried fruit-like candy ... preserved sweet date, preserved guava, jumbo sweet plum, dried mango, etc.

And there was the more mundane stuff like malted chocolate balls and jawbreakers … though in addition to the jaw breakers that looked too big to fit in a jaw they had tiny psycho jaw breakers. Some of that stuff is worth buying for the name alone.

Anyone have any recs?

Also, while the candy was labeled in English, the shop owner didn’t speak a word. Did I misunderstand or is the bulk candy $9 a pound? That was the deal breaker for me otherwise I’d be munching on xtrem air heads right now.
