Satisfy your sweet tooth in Waikiki with a visit to Candy Bar Hawaii.

Candy lovers are in for a treat with a visit to Candy Bar Hawaii, the only candy store of its kind in Wai­kiki, with its mix of hard to gummy candies, nostalgic flavors and made-in-Hawaii artisan chocolate bars from Madre Chocolate and Manoa Chocolate.

The locally owned boutique carries 400 types of candy from around the world, stored in bins and glass jars. Customers can mix and match flavors and textures for one flat $19.99 per-pound price.

Flavors range from tropical mango or pineapple to Violet Crumble, and textures of black licorice to multiflavored taffies. The myriad colors and taste sensations are a treat for the eyes and senses.

Those who want to reach back to the past will also find caramel Squirrel Nut Zippers, a candy first made in 1890, and the 1950s peanut butter Chick-O-Sticks.

Candy Bar Hawaii is open 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily, on Wai­kiki Beach Walk, at 227 Lewers St., No. 127. Call (808) 798-9072.

    Dunno about that easy-to-lift-cap glass jar action. 'Swhy I stopped buying crack seed at certain crack seed places.

    I will go look, though. Maybe m'faves aren't in such containers.
