I Managed to Caption this: RedBall is up to its old TWIX!

The #Redball Project was at Boyd’s Retro Candy Store this afternoon & there was no way I was passing up an opportunity for candy to get some epic pics with the KING-SIZED RedBall, and CANDY! So my 3 MUSKETEERS and I hit the road in pursuit of the big ATOMIC FIREBALL!

The WHATCHAMACALLIT, RedBall, was wedged perfectly so that there were 3 optimal up-close and personal photo opportunities (thank you to the artist, Kurt Perschke for selecting such an awesome Toledo Treasure and staging the RedBall so that it could be viewed from various angles, talk about a SMARTIE).

I felt like such a NERD hoarding around the big JAWBREAKER but I wanted to make certain none of the pics were DUDS.

It was refreshing, for once, I didn’t have any SOUR PATCH KIDS when it came to getting pics, each was eager for their turn.

Then the piece de resistance, CANDY! As we entered Boyd’s Retro Candy store the CHICKLETS minds were BLOWN, POP, CANDY, & SUGAR EVERYWHERE!!

Too bad PAYDAY was still a few days off because we could have dropped some mad COIN at Boyd’s.

Body’s was packed with PEEPS! The line was literally wrapping around the store. It was like a CIRCUS, PEANUTS free of course (gotta be mindful of allergies).

We ventured back out for some more epic pics with the RedBall this time with some of our SWEETS & TARTS. We felt like STARBURST!

I grabbed a cup of Joe and then it was time for my M &M’s and me to go. We were all LAUGHY TAFFY on the way home talking about all the JOY we had, in some of the pics we felt like a NUT, MOUNDS you, in others we didn’t/don’t!

LOL! That was a BLAST to write, visit, the entire experience was, as the kids say, EPIC! Thank you for another EPIC day Toledo Museum of Art and all the PEEPS who have made Play Time possible. And huge thank you to #RedBall Project for reminding Toledoans of ALL our Towns Treasures like Boyd’s, Rudy’s Hot Dog, Farmers Market, etc.

Boyd’s Retro Candy Store

Our little man has a birthday party coming up and what’s a birthday party without candy? So we took a trip to Boyd’s Retro Candy store to pick out some candy for the party.  I also allowed each kiddo to select a few candies for themselves on account of good behavior while they were stuck at home for a week. As you walk into Boyd’s Retro Candy store you can’t help but be taken back to your own childhood, with all the retro candies. For lack of a better definition, you feel like a kid in a candy shop, lol! We had so much fun……

 

 

Boyd’s Retro Candy Store is a great place to visit with the kiddos when it is too hot outside, too cold, when you are looking for that unique candy treat, planning a party, or perhaps a nostalgic gift for a friend, etc. Boyd’s Retro Candy store also has online shopping, so fill your carts and feed your sweet tooth. Do you have a favorite candy from childhood?
