When the International Halloween Committee voted on what should be dispensed to child beggars on that spooky night, candy came in first place, narrowly beating out bricks and tax attorneys in a can. Taste this blue-ribbon winner with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of treats at The Candy Aisle, with three locations in Kitsilano, downtown, and Steveston. The Candy Aisle is a haven for sweet teeth and candy coveters with a vast expanse of candy-filled shelves and sugary delights. The tasty treats come in individual pieces or in bulk, and include a variety of international and nostalgic sweets for button lovers living in the past. While this Groupon is only good for in-store purchases, anxious Annies can feast their eyes on the syrupy inventory via The Candy Aisle's online store.
The Globe and Mail and local blog Your Steveston have featured The Candy Aisle. Nine Yelpers give the downtown location a 4.5-star average and six Yelpers award the Kitsilano location an average of four stars:
- The M&M's corner also attracts hardcore candy devotees. Two rows of tall plastic dispensers are stacked vertically and hold twenty rainbow colours. That’s enough colours to inspire the creative streak in just about everybody. – Blogster, Your Steveston
- I had just been thinking about Chupa Chups the other week…then today wandered in to the Candy Aisle and there they were, along with all sorts of other sweet things I haven't seen recently or can't normally get in Canada. – Graydon A., Yelp, downtown location
