Norm's News Candy Store

Doesn't Toots look just like a kid in a candy store should?
Especially since he also has a huckleberry shake topped with blue (his favorite color) whipped cream.

This is one of our favorite places to go to lunch.
Norm's News has been in Kalispell, Montana for 70 years. 
It is in the old Opera House Square built in 1896. I love knowing the history of a place.

The walls are lined with candy, candy and more candy. 

Do you remember these? 
Honestly, I used to love them. 
But, there was no way our kids were getting some.

Every magazine you could ever want is available- that's why it's called Norm's News!

And where else can you buy a ten dollar giant gummy bear?
We did not buy one.

I just love all the colors! 

The kids each got to fill a bag with two dollars worth of candy. 

And we were finally on our way.
Cheeseburgers, Clam Chowder, Huckleberry Shakes and Candy.
IT was all good.

The old soda fountain is gorgeous. There's one in SouthPas. I should check it out. And I like knowing the history of old buildings, too.

This is such a fun place. How about some Clove Gum:-)

The one in South Pasadena is:

Not as cute but....
Full of history. Lots of movies are filmed there.

It looks like you attract readers that love candy. I wonder if they would be interested in making money with a candy fundraiser? There are lots of high profit candy fundraising ideas and most candy fundraisers have very low minimum orders.
