When Candygirl Marissa Gould moved to Miami last year, she was concerned with the lack of old-school candy stores to satisfy her sweet tooth. "I was hard-pressed to find an old-school candy store where you, the customer, got to mix and match your favorites. So I decided to create my own candyland -- a candygirl's candyland to sweeten up your day."
Well, she has done just that. Gould offers a variety of retro sweets, including Razzles, Mallo Cups, and edible cigarettes and cigars. She has gummies in just about every shape, size, and color, as well as those huge jawbreakers guaranteed to leave you with TMJ. And for those looking for an extreme sugar rush, try the Flintstone-size candy powder straws and the three-foot-long gummy snake, strangely named the Big Fat Hissy Fit.
Where do you find this sweet temptress?
Her original location at the Shops at Midtown is now her special-order and gift-basket HQ, while her recently opened second location at the Frieze ice cream shop in Plantation is your best bet for hitting her
bulk selection. You can also find her at the Wynwood art walk's food-truck
meetups and FIU campus fairs.
