They had some souvenier Breaking Bad candy and other items. Staff took photos of my wife and I posing as characters from Breaking Bad making a drug deal. It was a novel experience - kind of a hoot.

We visited to buy Breaking Bad Crystal Meth candy but found so many other interesting candies and memorabilia. They have hats, glasses, T shirts, aprons and kits more. Ken was great and talked with us for ages. We didn't know but the meth used in the TV show was actually candy from this shop. We are taking plenty back to... More

Great candy shop. Friendly owners. The fudge samples were amazing. So many unique flavors. If you are familiar with Breaking Bad, this is the place to check out. There is a naughty section of the store for anyone that might be looking for some fun adult themed chocolate. Check this place out and get your sweet tooth satisfied.

A wonderful confection made exclusively with Barbayanni-ouzo blue label! They also produce a dark chocolate truffle made with Barbayanni 'blue label' Ouzo, which is to die for!

An interesting place, with its range of Breaking Bad merchandise. But the owners are very friendly and helpful and the candy is good.

We stopped in here after our RV tour to pick up Breaking Bad souvenirs. There was a long line up, which would be ok, but it was very slow-moving. We also found that the prices for the BrBa souvenirs were very high. Instead, we bought t-shirts and mugs at the Guerilla t-shirt shop just down the street.

Thank Deborah P
