Las Vegas candy

Anyone know of a place where I can buy Atomic Fireballs; preferably near the strip or maybe one of the outlet malls?

      Looks like its in the McCarran Airport Concourse B
      So when you fly in take a look for them.

      Las Vegas Fruits & Nuts
      5757 Wayne Newton Blvd. B-Concourse
      Las Vegas - (702) 435-1520

      Here's an easier option, they have them for $6.99/pound ?
      (not sure if that's an on-line price or they sell it at their store at the same price)

        These are ideas, but I loved Atomic Fireballs as a kid.

        #1 Contact the manufacturer, maybe they can time your order to deliver it to the hotel you're staying at in LV.
        or at least look and droul over their bulk Atomic Fireball offerings. You could stock up on a pretty good supply.

        #2 Check out or call Smart & Final(s) in Las Vegas. They're a warehouse grocery store that sells stuff for businesses and they have a huge candy section where they sell bulk packaged candy/gum for businesses. There's a good chance they may have it.

            It's easily available online in bulk. Here's one store that sells 5-lbs for 21.63 with free shipping: http://www.candyfavorites.com/Atomic-Fireballs-Bulk-pr-1566.html

            I'm proud to have a 5-lb jar that I bought more than five years ago -- the fireballs are still going strong. Ferrara Pan sells them online (and in smaller quantities) here: http://www.ferrarapan.com/store/item.asp?ITEM_ID=353&DEPARTMENT_ID=64 for $23.95 and offers a great deal on 5-lbs of the candy only -- 12.95 http://www.ferrarapan.com/store/item....

              No free shipping to Canada though. And then there's customs charges on top of that. Hence my desire to buy some while I'm visiting.

              You mean in bulk? Bulk prices tend to be overinflated - for example, at the M&M world, they charge something like $8/pound for bulk M&Ms.

              I suggest you try, say, the Vons supermarket across the street from UNLV - that's probably your best chance to find something like that.

                Preferably bulk but I'd probably take any size to be frank. Can't buy them where I live and shipping is horrendous. Thanks for the tip!
