Candies! It's the object of desire of every child, yet when we're adults, we no longer seem to crave such sugary treats. However the The Candy Room has the perfect solution;
"[creating a shop that uses] the concept of illusion [that] draws the inner child out of the customer using a strong connection with childhood, fantasy, fiction and of course, sweets."

The simple yet creative illustrations on the white wall, make the various designs and colours of the confectionery stand out vividly - particularly the M&M's which come in different shades of green.
The assorted colourful treats are displayed in creative containers and due to the amount of candy on offer - you feel an urge to explore and see just what kind of sweets one can find in The Candy Room. It is very hard to choose which ones you are going to take home; I managed to find a can of eyeball jawbreakers, a huge Hershey chocolate and heart shape jelly beans.
The Candy Room also offer sugar and gluten free candy. Customers can easily find a wide range of gluten free Jelly Beans and sugar free candies at the right corner of the room. However the gluten free Jelly Beans are not as 'gummy' as the normal ones (but they are still pretty 'gummy') and they make a great substitute for those who want to have the flavour of jelly beans yet are unable to have gluten.
For gift hunters, The Candy Room have a way of packaging their candy which is unique enough to be presented as gift. Yet if you are a perfectionist my suggestion is to tie a ribbon on top of it.
Lastly, for the sweet tooth, this is a candy shop you don't want to miss. It might be a small, but it brings back the daydreams of a world of everlasting jawbreakers and chocolate fountains.
