I remember back in 6th grade learning an interesting science lesson. My teacher had laid a large magnet flat on a table and then rolled a metal ball bearing past the open end. The lesson was in watching the metal ball’s trajectory curve right into the magnet.
I was reminded of this moment from childhood on a recent visit to Ocean Shores. You see, I came rolling in on the main road into town when out of the corner of my eye I spied Buddy & Howie’s Old Fashioned Sweet Shoppe. My car then, seemingly at the mercy of an unseen force, curved right into the parking lot, coming to a rest right in front of the store.
Ahh, the magnetic power of candy.
Buddy & Howie’s Old Fashioned Sweet Shoppe is like a trip down memory lane. You just don’t find many stores any longer than only sell candy. They offer everyone’s favorites too so you’re sure to find something you like. They also have a well stocked inventory of candy you’ll remember from your youth or that you haven’t seen in a long time. As you browse the selection there you’re also sure to find a few candies that you’ve never tried before but look too enticing to just leave behind.
Saltwater taffy, chocolate covered Twinkies, sour balls, candy bars, Jolly Ranchers, sour gummies, fudge, peanut clusters, and more… Buddy & Howie’s Old Fashioned Sweet Shoppe seems to have it all.
The kids didn’t even mind this stop. It seems like I had stumbled on a shared interest of ours. A particular favorite of theirs was a brick shaped candy that you could build with, like Legos, but then also eat.
When our visit to Ocean Shores was complete, a couple of days later, we made one more stop at Buddy & Howie’s Old Fashioned Sweet Shoppe so we could each have our own small bag of hand picked treats on the way home.
