Candy is a coastal thing. When eating candy at the ocean, no one gains weight, alters their blood sugar, or gets a toothache! It’s just sweet, blissful decadence! Well, that may not be completely true, but Tom n Larry Candy will make a believer out of anybody. Even the way their name is painted on the side of the building lets visitors know that there’s no hidden agenda here. If you’re at the coast and you want candy, go to Tom n Larry Candy. -Cathryn D.
