When you have a sweet tooth, there is one place to go in Austin - Big Top!
Probably one of the best stores we visited during our trip to Austin. They sell all sorts of candy and fun delicious treats. Too bad we were full from eating down the street at Torchy's. We did buy some candy by the pound.
Big Top offers everything you can dream of...and more. The shop is in a cool strip on Congress with lots of other cool stores. I always pick up my chocolate covered gummy bears and chocolate covered Swedish fish here. My mom picks up the black licorice string. We also made a bag of gummies for my nephews from the candy bins. Stop by but don't eat all my chocolate.
Did I mention the many different exotic flavors of salt water Taffy or gummy bears. I took my whole family of 5 at 5:00 on a Saturday and we managed to flow through the shoppe with no problems. I highly recommend this as a family outing or maybe even a first date.
My brother was in town and we stumbled upon this shop while exploring South Congress. This place is a flashback to old-fashion candy shops selling all sort of candies by the lb. and pre-packaged items for kids and adults alike. It also has mini gummy bears!!!! Not many candy stores carry the mini version so very thankful I found them here!
