Here’s the really ironic thing about my first time in Freak LunchBox… I arrived uptown about 40 mins early for my night shift, and decided that I was going to go for a walk, and try to burn off a few extra calories from the supper I’d just eaten. I didn’t walk very far before I noticed that Freak LunchBox was opened, and there wasn’t anyone in there (other than a couple of cute candy girls). So instead of burning off calories, I was in a store completely dedicated to candy. Candy. Candy. More Candy. If ever you’ve wanted to rot your sweet tooth, Freak LunchBox is the place for you! (Which reminds me.. I have a dentist appointment this afternoon… opps!)
One of the nice things about Freak Lunchbox is that their bulk candy is all the same price, so you can just mix and match within the same bag. The downside of this is that you’re not forced to choose one or two things, so you can just keep adding candy until your heart’s content… without really realizing just how much you’re spending until they weight that bad at the cash register. My bag o’ refined sugar cost me over $13… including the $2 Charleston Chew that I picked up as well! I’ve seen the mini ones periodically over the years, but haven’t seen the full sized bars since I was a kid. Still, $2 seems a little steep for a chocolate bar… but hey… I can throw it in the freezer for 30 mins, and then smash it into little pieces! That’s pretty neat!
