Adrian Moore and Todd Kitchen like candy just as much as the next guy. What they didn't like was that the North Market lacked a candy shop. So the pizza-parlor owners transferred their skills to another fun food group and opened the Candy Shack.

Adrian Moore and Todd Kitchen like candy just as much as the next guy. What they didn't like was that the North Market lacked a candy shop. So the pizza-parlor owners transferred their skills to another fun food group and opened the Candy Shack.

Their North Market space is lined with rows of candy containers, filled with colorful crunchies and sour gummies that are ready to be scooped into plastic produce bags. Packaged items, like candy cigars and lipsticks, are displayed along the top. In all, they carry about 150 different varieties, Moore said. It's a candy lovers' paradise.

Some of the selection is seasonal, but most are sweet-tooth staples. Here's a look at a few of the old-school choices.

Ring Pop

A lollipop you don't have to hold! Who can resist this delicious bling and the nostalgia it brings?

Good & Plenty

The starkly colored, candy-coated licorice bits have become iconic. At Candy Shack, buy 'em by the handful instead of by the box.

Wax bottles

Bite off the cap for a taste of sugary syrup. These just might be the original Gushers!

Sour gummy worms

The classic gummy worm gets a sour update. It's joined on the Candy Shack shelf by more gummy candy varieties than we knew existed: peach rings, gummy sharks and gummy fried eggs.

Bit-O-Honey

The bite-sized honey-flavored taffy was originally produced in candy bar form. Even at this size, they'll keep you chewing for quite a while.
