Baldinger's

We found somewhere really yummy to visit last Saturday - Baldinger's. Baldinger's is a old time candy store with all the new good stuff. They have a penny section, a 10 cent section, and a bulk candy section so you can pick out all your favorites. Anne was thrilled when we told her she could pick out 10 items. She went right up to this HUGE chocolate bunny and asked if that could be one of her items. She is so smart...and sneaky. My favorite find was similar to a Reese's Pieces Cup only instead of peanut butter it was marshmallow...so yummy. Oh, and they had Cinnamon bears. Haven't had those in years.



They had chocolate in tons of different shapes. Anne got one in the shape of a horse and a baseball mitt.

It was so funny. Andrew said more then once as we walked through the store..."I hate candy." People around us chuckled. He did manage to find a few toys instead.


This 82 year old lady and her sister run the store...here she is cranking the cash register. She said she had to crank it so many times because it only went up to 9.99 so if you bought more then that it had to be rung up as a separate purchase.

The foreign candy.

They had tons of sprinkles too...

Oh did I mention the cookie cutters. They came in every shape and size.

They still write every purchase down by had and add it up in their heads. She was pretty fast.

I hate candy, too. Except when it's free. And when it's after pizza. Or nachos.
