Hard Candies (like East Side Mario's/Jack Astor's)

Does any one know where to buy the complimentary candies that you get at East Side Mario's or Jack Astor's after you meal? The flavours aren't the typical lollipop flavours i.e. yellow = banana and not lemon, green = green apple and not lime. I'm looking to find a candy shop in downtown Toronto that carries them.

Thanks in advance!

  1. haven't been to ESM since leaving burlington five years ago, but if they are as i remember you can get them at ... (wait for it) ... dollarama.

      1. Wow, I'm not sure what I should be more ashamed of: 1) admitting to eating at East Side Mario's once in a blue moon or 2) Scouring the local Dollaramas for the free candies they give you after your meal.

        =) thanks!

        1. John Vince carries a large collection of bulk candies. You might try there.

          1. Nutty Chocolatier has a good selection of hard candies in interesting flavours. And a better selection of British import hard candies like custard and rhubarb, which I'm addicted to, and treacle toffees (also delicious).
