Omg, I totally forgot to write about Candytown, right next door to the San Pedro Fish Market! Silly me!
After gorging ourselves with shrimp, oysters and ceviche, we finally called it quits and all walked over to Candytown. Yes, we saved room for dessert. Candytown is super cute and looks like Willy Wonka barfed all over Berth 77.
It's so kitch-- an exact replica of a candy store you would find on any Boardwalk in the 70s (Santa Cruz, Atlantic City, Coney Island, yay!). Loved it. We all went home with chocolates and saltwater taffies.
One of the best parts of the trip is dessert. The candy store is AMAZING. It's like stepping into a time machine that takes you straight back to your childhood.
All ending in Candyland, a nice wrap-up to another great Umamiventure! Aaaaaaand here are some emoticons :) :( :/
