I have to admit, I love candy. All kinds — sweet, salty, chocolate, chewy, gummy, nutty. The list could go on and on.
If you are like me, you are always on the lookout for candy and might be willing to drive a bit to satisfy that sweet tooth.
Here are three old-timey candy shops in Northeast Pennsylvania to help keep your candy stores stocked this winter.
Where: 128 Luzerne Ave., West Pittston
Hours: Wednesdays through Sundays, 2 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Stepping into Ballyhoo in West Pittston is like stepping back in time.
The shop features ice cream sundaes and old-fashioned soda drinks in addition to the candy of your youth (and the youth of your parents and possibly your grandparents, too).
The candy is like you remember — a nickel, a dime and maybe a quarter for the satellite wafers, gummy bears and wax soda bottles.
