  1. Lots of places, including Superstore if memory serves... but only around Easter.

    1. Don't know what YYC means, but they now have Xmas peeps available at our local CVS drugstore.

        YYC is the airport code for Calgary, it's used as a shorthand on the board since we cover 4 provinces. I had no idea there were Xmas peeps! (makes sense I guess but I've only seen them around Easter time). Thanks for the info ola.:)

          I think I saw them in the Bridgeland candy store...can't remember the actual name...same plaza as Main Dish by Starbucks?...

            Candy Bouquet? I didn't know they did anything but well, bouquets. I'll have to check them out next time I'm in the area.

              What other candy do they have?? I been trying too find a candy store with retro candy.

                There is a candy store in Inglewood which might serve your purposes. If not, perhaps a trip out to Banff to Welch's...I know they have them there.

                  they have a pretty good selection of everything you remember...Clove Gum, Necco, Neapolitan Taffy, Laffy Taffy all the crazy gum, pop rocks, old loot bags, pink elephant popcorn, etc. I was in heaven when I stumbled in there. They do have bouquets but a good section of the store is dedicated to nostalgic pick up candy. You should check it out if you have a sweet tooth. Be fore warned, they are "forceful" salespeople and will have your basket full before you turn around. Polite enough of course, but expect to buy, lol.
                  PS they have double salt licorice if anyone is into that.....

          2. Alpine Sausage next to the Glamorgan bakery (wonderbread factory) had had them.
