Attention all Hudson Valley candy lovers! There is a new candy store in Uptown Kingston called Kingston Candy Bar. I stopped by there today. It has only been open for about a week. If you are craving something sweet, you have options! You can get bulk candy by the pound, huge lollipops, locally made pastries, Jane’s Ice Cream, milkshakes, egg creams, and even the World's Largest Gummi Worm ($27.95) or the World’s Largest Gummi Snake ($150). I like the bright colors and kitschy candy signs. It will be interesting to see what other types of candy and treats they add to their menu as they grow. Kingston Candy Bar owner Diane Reeder is also the founder and executive director of the Queens Galley.
