The Scoop: Oh Lolli Lolli brings sugar high to Clayton

August 19th 12:08pm, 2010

081910_OhLolliLolliKids in the De Mun area of Clayton are all smiles thanks to the sweet arrival of candy shop Oh Lolli Lolli. Located at 802 De Mun Ave., the itsy bitsy store sells a wide selection of bulk and wrapped candies from the well-loved to the well-missed.

In the chocolate category, customers will find rocky road clusters, coconut haystacks and turtles, plus lots of chocolate- and yogurt-covered items like gummy bears, cherries and caramel corn. Oh Lolli Lolli sells 12 flavors of gummy bears, and other gummy delights shaped as butterflies, jet planes and army men. Lollipops too? Of course.

“We’re trying to get a little bit of everything into our tiny spot,” said co-owner Kathy Laufketter. She and her husband had wanted to open a candy shop for some time and eyed the space on De Mun Avenue after recently moving into the neighborhood.

Adults will appreciate Oh Lolli Lolli’s stock of nostalgic candy including marshmallow cones, flying saucers, Mary Janes, Turkish taffy and candy buttons, and obscure candy bars like Toffifays, Mallo Cups and Zagnuts.

Oh Lolli Lolli also takes suggestions, so don’t be shy about asking if you don’t see your fave sweet on the shelf. “A customer wanted milk chocolate sponge candy, so we ordered it. That just came in yesterday,” said Laufketter.

The store is open Sunday to Thursday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. If you want to stay in-the-know about what’s in stock, check out their Facebook page, where they will post all the latest arrivals.
