Powell's Candy Shop
I'll give a plug to one of my favorite candy stores, Powell's. There are a few things about Powell's that make it very appealing.
First, they play candy-related music while you are shopping. Second, they have a lot of candy for sale that you don't think exists anymore like Zagnut or Mary Jane or Sen-Sen, among others.
But the piece de resistance (at least in the Los Gatos, CA location) is the continuous playing of "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" in the back of the store, complete with four movie theater seats.
I thought there were only two locations and didn't know they were a franchisee. The first one opened in Windsor, CA (near Santa Rosa). There's still not that many locations. There's 14 in California, one in Colorado, one in Idaho and one in Oregon. You can check them out at the web at Powell's Sweet Shoppe.
Maybe tomorrow I will talk about Psycho Donuts...
