"I want candy:" Not only is it a popular song, but a familiar refrain with kids. A new store in the University Mall, Candylicious, satisfies those sweet cravings. Color and presentation are important to owner Khuyen Tran, who opened the store at the end of March. "Candy is like fashion," she says, noting sugary trends come and go with the seasons. And sometimes, what's old is new again. Currently popular: nostalgic candy from the 1920s and '30s such as Charleston Chew, Mallo Cups and Sugar Daddy. Two other coming attractions Khuyen identified are fancy lollipops and relatively healthy concoctions like Superfruit Jelly Belly's made from real fruit juice.
