Where would I be able to find some retro candy in LA? I know the internet has some places, but any actual store I can walk into and browse?
Zanzabelle on Rowena Ave in Silver lake has a revolving selection of old candies the owner order stuff for you if you make a request
Galco's, which has all the great sodas that you can't find anywhere else, also carries retro candies, several kinds...
Out of range, but last time I was in Solvang, there was a taffy store that had a nice selection of some good ol' "retro" candy sold by the pound.
The Rexall at Beverly Blvd. and La Cienega used to carry a lot of old-time candy.
The Fair Oaks Pharmacy in South Pasadena has a candy counter with a lot of the oldies.
This place has a large selection, however it is supposedly wholesale, but often will allow cash sales, and I don't remember in what type of quantity, meaning cartons, etc.
