While in town, after getting my haircut, I decided I’d go track down the “beta version” of the Brighton Cybercandy shop.
After a bit of hunting on Gloucester Road I found the little unmarked shop and ventured in.
The place may be small but the walls are literally lined with candy from all over the world. I only had a fiver left in my wallet (probably a good thing!) and as the prices are pretty high (I guess this is an International Candy Boutique after all) I was only able to grab a few things: Milk Duds, Junior Mints, to relive my vending machine snackathons while I worked in NYC, and something else hadn’t known about: Star Wars Dark Side dark chocolate Peanut M&Ms!
I really paid a premium for those babies though: £2.20 for a 93g bag of substandard chocolate-coated nuts, but with Yellow on the front tempting me with the words “Luke, I am your peanut.” how could I resist?
I’ll have to head back next weekend and try out a few of the crazy Japanese goodies.
