Fodor's Expert Review Big Top Candy Shop

South Congress District Food/Candy

South Congress is filled with shops that pack a nostalgia factor, from vintage goods to home cooking, but none is quite as sweet as this place, where bins upon bins of colorful sour candies, chocolates, and lollipops line the oh-so-colorful walls. There’s Shakespearean Insult Gum, Texan-made Chic-o-sticks, and gobs of themed candy. And if you slide up to the bar, you can order milk shakes, shaved ice, or old-fashioned sodas.
