Wal-mart usually have the freshest candy with the best prices. Maybe it'll be a choice on next year's poll

>>Wal-mart usually have the freshest candy with the best prices. Wow. It must have been difficult sampling the hundreds of different stores that sell candy. Looking forward to seeing the raw data you used to make this conclusion.

I notice Dexter Spa is among the choices. Do they even sell candy these days? It seems to be just a keno parlor that sells lottery tickets and cigarettes--that's it!

I figured they must have some candy. Gum at least? We'll see if they get any votes.

WOW! Eye Candy! Great new page layout! Makes the Tab look like a wannabe.

Dexter is just a place for people to go smoke cigarettes and play Keno! And Walmart? Come on now. Seriously?
Joe March 30, 2012 at 03:03 PM
I'm not a smoker, but cigarettes are not illegal. Of course keno is ok because the state/government controls it, and they can do no wrong

Fastachi is the closest thing to a true candy store in Watertown, though it's primarily a nut shop. (Their fresh-roasted nuts are wonderful.) Otherwise the closest candy shop is A Chocolate Dream in Belmont Center.
