Candi Werx Grand Opening

In a world where everything is run by chain stores these days, it's nice when you find one of those little specialty stores. It's even nicer when the specialty store just happens to stock one of your favourite items. Candy.

Recently, a friend of mine opened her store in west Hamilton called  Candi Werx . While Jules does have a stall at the Hamilton Farmers Market at 55 York Blvd., it's a little small space wise and the new store at 782 King Street West is just what was needed for the ever expanding stock for all tastes.

There are items for diabetics, as well as gluten free items. The store also stocks "retro-candy" (remember Cracker Jacks, Necco Waffers, Sugar Daddys, Mojos and Kookoos?).

For the really brave, why not try a sucker with a scorpion in it. One of my favourites, beside the Mojos, is the Scorchers. It's a hard candy with a touch of cayenne pepper. It starts off hot but then the sugar in the candy takes over and the different flavours is intense.

Don't take my word for it. Head over to the Hamilton Farmers Market location at 55 York Blvd or to the new store at 782 King St. W.
