Best of Halifax

Best Candy Store

Freak Lunchbox, 1723 Barrington, 420-9151

The new kid on the candy store block has completely outdistanced the competition—maybe fueled by all the gummi bears and Jolt. A psychedelic experience in retro candy, Freak Lunchbox pays homage to great bonbons of days gone by, from Pop Rocks and Pez to ChupaChups and chocolate bars. And it has yummy milkshakes to wash all your goodies down. A cavity-inducing fix for the strongest of sweet teeth cravings, and a really cool name to boot makes Freak Lunchbox the sweetest of all.

Runner-up: Sweet Jane’s, 5431 Doyle, 425-0168
