Robin's Candy
Attraction details
Reviewed 3 February 2014

I stopped in here, mainly because the sign caught my eye. The store is cute, with vintage candies galore. Of course, there are the trinkets like inflatable turkeys. We were created with strips of candy buttons (!), and then we spent nearly an hour just looking and giggling at what laid on the shelves. Prices . . . match niche and boutique style (i.e. this ain't your 99 cents candy store).

** Trip Advisor lists this as an attraction - it is just a candy store....

As we walked through Newbury Street in Boston, we stumbled upon Robin's Candy store. Although they need larger signs on the sidewalk (because you have to go down several steps to enter the store and we walked by this place several times and did not see them...) - it was a great find.

My kids will be sure not to miss this place in the future. It was great to have a little candy store to go through where the kids could actually afford something they picked out on our shopping trips.

Candy was average priced, and there was a nice assortment of candy. Small shop, but fun to stop into. The decor was colorful and inviting. ** Bungee chairs out front were great, but they were overpriced... Target offers them for $25.00 (here they were selling them for $90 - stick to the candy)

Upon cashing out at the register they offered us our purchases, and "a smile and a tooth brush" to make our day complete. The kids were more excited about the toothbrush than their candy at that point (go figure??!! hahaha).

The other item of interest was the cardboard "round to it". You will have to go into the store to get yours free with your purchase.... Sorry, for some reason we did not get any other pictures of the store when we were there... probably too busy checking out the candy!
