It's like touring Willy Wonka's factory in Bethesda (Photos)

Enter the new palace of candy, sodas and other sweets from here and abroad at Westfield Montgomery Mall, in this virtual tour. What it lacks in size relative to Willy Wonka's factory, it makes up for in variety of brands and products. Let us enter Lolli and Pops:

Inside, I found old favorites like Pop Rocks and Goo Goo Clusters, and new products I'll have to buy, like Duff Energy Drinks from The Simpsons.
Michael Bloomberg's worst
nightmare. Too bad, Mike
Yes! Now if the County government
can just get out of the liquor
business, maybe we can one
day buy Duff beer in Bethesda
grocery stores, too
Pop Rocks. Nuff said.
There are sections of international treats, and others categorized by franchise, like Star Wars, Frozen and Minions. They even have a "local" section.
Buy local
Or European...

Why, this establishment is filled with all kinds of sweets the super-low-energy Montgomery County Council thinks you ought not to be allowed to consume (unless they use public funds to provide it to your kids directly).
Classic gingerbread man, and
modern Ugly Sweater cookies

There's one born every minute

No War on Christmas here

The Force is strong
with this one

Radioactive Soda!

My favorite from Tennessee -
Goo Goo Clusters

Dyer won't be coming in today. The squirrels threw him down the incinerator chute.

Requesting two Dyer reviews: Goo goo clusters and Moxie Soda.

The Squirrels of Bethesda agree - Dyer is a bad nut. Stay out of Battery Lane Park if you know what's good for you.

Is that Pedobear in the fifth picture from the bottom?

The vibe of this place just got totally creepy.

Four minutes.

Dyer's shill is on patrol this morning. LOL

Not the shill. Posted at 8:14, saw comments when mine loaded and thought they were defiling comments so I re-posted.

It's not only the shill gets offended.

No Pocky in the Asian section? Even my local sushi place has those for sale.

Pretty limited selection of international stuff. Most of that could be found at a decent supermarket or Asian grocery.
