Bulk Candy & Grab Bags
If you’re looking for loads of candy, then our bulk candy section of the store will be just what you want. You can buy as much or as little as you want in our bulk candy section, because we offer bags and price things by weight. We even have $1 grab bags.
We encourage you to indulge in as much candy as you want with some of store’s favorites—including Swedish Fish, Taffy, Gumballs, chocolate covered nuts, candy covered almonds, Sour Power Belt candy, an assortment of hard candies, Jelly Belly, and lots more!
Old Fashioned Sodas
We aren’t just a candy and popcorn store; we’re also a soda store. Many sodas these days are made with artificial sweeteners and chemicals, but old-fashioned sodas are made with cane sugar—which is overall healthier for you, more naturally processed by your body, and still tastes amazing (some would argue even better) than your standard modern pop drinks.
And the best thing is that these old-fashioned sodas are still available! We have a broad selection of vintage beverages. Choose from shelves of root beer, birch beer, sarsaparilla, and ginger beer. We have Hanks, Verner’s, Boylan, Bulldog, and Reading Draft handcrafted sodas in a variety of flavors. You’ll find old favorites and flavors you’ve never heard of before—from Black Cherry to Peach Soda and beyond.
Whatever it is you’re looking for when it comes to candy and soda, you’ll be sure to find something delicious at Cole’s Gourmet Popcorn & Treats.
