In the words of our city's leader, "I don't care what people are saying Uptown or wherever they are, this city will be chocolate at the end of the day." Lucky Nagin and lucky you! A sweet new shop opened up on Magazine Street a few weeks ago: The Lucky You Candy Company.
Weekend To Do: Be a kid in a candy store
This classic candy store offers the opportunity to fill a basket with pounds and pounds of
your favorite treats, and unlike the restrictions when you were a kid- you can eat as much as you want, when you want.
A 1/2 pound is $3.99 and a pound is $5.99. A stop in this shop will bring you back to your childhood years and will have you reflecting on your true sugar vice. My favorite- delicious mini swiss chocolate nougats, the Toblerone Bars (only 25 cents!). This shop has taffy, yummy gummys, candy bars, jelly bellys, hard candy and even a giant Saints Player Pez Dispensor!!
The best part of this new shop is the Do-It yourself Pinata! Pick your colorful donkey and fill it with your favorite treats- put the blind fold on and smash away.
