Jen: I went to a restaurant called The Stinking Rose over the weekend. It is a garlic themed restaurant in Beverly Hills, from their drinks to their food and even to their dessert! As you go to leave the building, you'll find a little store that sells fun and garlicy souvenirs to remember your unique dining experience by!
It got me thinking about other randomly themed stores, such as the Purple Store at Ports O' Call Village in San Pedro, CA. Purple was my favorite color as a child, so this was a dream come true for me!
Do you know of any quirky stores?
Crystal: That sounds sooooo yummy! I love garlic! Although I don't know about garlic dessert...that doesn't sound so yummy. :)
And I've never heard of the Purple Store! I'm gonna have to go check that out though considering my love for purple. :)
I can't really think of any themed stores off the top of my head...just the popular ones, like the M&Ms Store in Las Vegas...LOVE that place!
Hmm...that's a tough one! I'll come back to this if I think of one. :)
Jen: I have no idea if The Purple Store is still around. I remember it from my childhood. As for M&Ms, blec! It's one of my least favorite candies! I have fallen in love with Palmers Candy recently, though. They always seem to have knock-offs of the popular brands, so maybe they have an M&M-like treat! If only there was a Palmers store!
Crystal: I'm not a fan of plain M&M's, but I love the Peanut M&Ms and i LOOOOOOVVVEEEE the Peanut Butter M&Ms.....they are heaven. :) You should try them if you haven't already. :) :)
I haven't a clue what Palmers Candy is though...it doesn't sound very tasty to me though, lol. I all of a sudden got an image of the grandfather commercial with the butterscoth candies...Werthers I think...lol....don't know why, that's just what came to mind. :)
