Start with the candy

If there’s a candy in this world, you can probably find it at the Wakarusa Dime Store. Your childhood favorites? Yep, they’ve got it. For hand-dipped chocolates, there’s no place like Olympia Candy Kitchen in Goshen for a box of turtles and a phosphate from their old-fashioned soda fountain. Don’t forget to treat yourself to a gelato while browsing The Nut Shoppe down the street.
