Place to get a cavity:

Sweet Dreams Candies and Gifts

Donít tell your dentist about Sweet Dreams Candies and Gifts, 126 N. Main St. Just remember to brush thoroughly after eating the tasty treats from the large assortment of bulk candy available in this Oconomowoc candy store.

Chocoholics can get their fix from a selection of chocolate-covered raisins, almonds and malted milk balls. Decadent gourmet caramel apples are just oozing temptation. Swedish fish and saltwater taffy are popular purchases.

Youngsters can gross out their parents with owner Dawn Gutierrezís selection of gummy rats and tarantulas. Thereís something for adults too. They can re-create their own childhood memories with nostalgic candies like Satellite wafers, Sugar Daddys and candy buttons.

Those who canít make up their minds which of the goodies they want donít have to. At $5.99 a pound, mixing of treats is encouraged. In her country candy store atmosphere Gutierrez offers a fine selection of sugar-free candies as well as frozen ice cream, specialty coffees and fudge. The one thing she doesnít sell: toothbrushes.
