Sweet Tooth

Took a short ride along a familiar route the other day. i had a craving, so i stopped by one of my favourite candy stores...
The Sweet Spot, in Barrington
This place has to be a gold mine. It's located about a block away from a high school and about halfway from the school to a hot dog stand. i like to stop by occasionally for a malt and to stock up on some candies that are a bit harder to find 'round these parts.

This trip's take...

The bigger candy companies have all but shut out many of the brands carried at the Sweet Spot; the market in the area is dominated by Mars, Hershey's, and Nestle's. Not that there's anything wrong with any of those brands, but when i browse the shelves there, i find sweets i hadn't seen since i was in grade school.

  It's good that i don't live so close to that shop or else i'd probably be all that much rounder for it and my dentist could take more family vacations...

This is the song that was going through my head during this ride... it's a bit irreverent, but enjoy:
