Happiness is a Marilyn Made of Jelly Beans

This weekend, on a birthday excursion for the parents, I got a good look at the new store in the Universal Citywalk that has recently taken over the Nascar Racing store. Actually, I was less looking and more or less gobsmacked, when on our way to the movie theater, we caught a glimpse of a lifesize Marilyn Monroe.

Made of jellybeans.

If you fail to understand how awesome this really is, then you are... not awesome.

That is all.

This place turned me, my sister and my mother into giddy children, running inside to find sweet confections of every shape and variation. The store is called It'sSugar, and it's MARVELOUS.

There are candies of every flavor, naughty edible bras made of gummy, 'Get Your Own Sugar Daddy' T-shirts, chocolate covered cupcakes, and m&ms of every shape and color (it was no surprise that the Lakers themed m&ms were completely out).

For a junkie searching for a fix, this was the worst and best possible discovery on the planet. You know how the kids look in 'Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory' when they get their first good look at the room with the chocolate river?

Yeah... it was like that.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a half pound bag of cherry sours, gummy bears, chocolate raisins, sour worms, and sour skittles to get through.
