Dentists tend to avoid Frankies Candy Bar, but everyone else loves the colourful shop, which is bursting with sugary snacks such as chocolate-covered gummy bears, lollipops, candy rocks, sour gummy worms and gumballs. Anglophiles especially adore the hard-to-find treats from England. Stop by before Halloween to stock up on Pop Rocks, Giant Chewy Nerds, Big League Chew and Tooty Frooties for trick-or-treating ghosts and goblins.—Sheri Radford
