  • Tons of candies from different eras and cultures. Not only you get to spoil yourself, but also learn about what people used to consume as sweets back in those days. We also came in the right time where they were having water tasting event! We got to taste all kinds of different water and surprisingly they all tasted different. You should definitely stop by here. If you don't like sweets, they also have different teas.
  • The cutest historic candy store we ever did see!
