There’s something downright sweet about Freak Lunchbox. Yes, yes, the store is full of sweet candy, but there’s also a funhouse atmosphere reminiscent of Willy Wonka fantasies and that crazy Oompa-Loompa out on the sidewalk. All this sweetness is perfectly encapsulated in the multi-coloured Freak Lunchbox sign (which regularly hypnotizes us into the store with that psychedelic spiral) not to mention the slew of goofy hand-painted creations from the store's owner Jeremy Smith. A candy-craving Popeye, those colourful gummy bears and that burly weightlifter and his missing face are what make Freak memorable.

The price of everything has more or less gone up including heating oil which means staying warm this winter is going to cost you more. What are your ways to try to cut down on heating costs?
