How Sweet It Is in Atlantic City

If you're anywhere near the east coast and someone mentions Atlantic City, you probably think of gambling casinos, the boardwalk, or Donald Trump. If you're a beach person, you will add the wide beach and splashing in the surf.

Last week I discovered another side of Atlantic City…the truly sweet side. Sure the people were nice there, but the place was absolutely the sweetest thing ever. Really. 

The sign out front says it all:  IT'SUGAR. When you walk inside, you forget all about the food triangle and your latest diet. It is all about SUGAR in big bright capital letters. They have a wall of M&M's with dispensers in every color. How about that? Brown M&M's, my favorite color, and with my monogram already on each one! M is for Margaret. These will be my signature giveaway.

Brown M&MsElephant CandyMake Your Own CandybarYou can get an idea of the scale of the place in the picture with the elephant – notice the heads of people in the bottom right? Yes, it was that big. I love the sentiment of that sign, though – candy for breakfast because, after all, it is the most important meal of the day. It's true you can make your own candy bar – my daughter-in-law's birthday was the next day and we made one especially for her.

Candy for BreakfastfudgeAs if the M&M's weren't enough, the cases were full of luscious looking fudge in any shade of chocolate you want. Yes, we bought some of that to take home, and no, I will not discuss how much of it made it all the way back to Baltimore. 

Room with a viewIt was a beautiful warm-but-not-hot day at the shore, and after all that sweetness we headed back to the hotel to relax and take in the view. Ah, what could be better? Salt air and sweet candy. Delicious!

Margaret,  I always think of casinos when I think of AC.  I didn't know about the sweeter part though.  I lost my sweet tooth years back though, so I'll stick with the gambling....just try to moderate myself:-)  I like the post and thank you for the info.

I'm a circus peanut kind of girl, but I bet it would be fun to watch kids build their own candy bars!

Dan, I'll be walking in the morning. Thanks for stopping by.

Jason, Please teach us how you "lost" the sweet tooth. Glad you liked the post

Chris, It was fun to watch kids of all ages build their candy bars...Filling a small plastic cup ,you pick from all the candies in the store. From that  little container of goodies ,your custom bar is made.

Margaret,

i used to go to A/C many times a year...when I did sports memorabilia shows at Trump. I have been to that store for sure...they have the best salt water taffy on the board walk..not great for my teeth but I love the taste! My wife and I used to bring home a big jar of the different flavors.

Neal, I think this place is relatively new. It is in the Pier Shops. Witrh all the chocolate, did not notice any salt water taffy. This located near Caesars and Trump Plaza.
