Freak Lunchbox, 1723 Barrington, 420-9151
Winner by a huge margin, Freak Lunchbox is the place to load up on quality candy. Everything under the sun is here: sweet eats and cool toys for kids of all ages. You can get the old stuff like Neapolitan taffy and Thrills gum. New stuff like Nerds. American stuff like Mallow Cups and Necco Wafers. There’s nothing like a bag of gummy bears to brighten up your day.
