Just around the corner, nestled between what appears to be an abandoned building and a smoke shop, is a new candy store. I love candy and shopping so it is only natural that I am attracted to this place. I have no idea how a purveyor of Smarties and Charleston Chews makes enough money to stay in business, much less make a decent living. I will do my best to keep the lights on at Lucky You and hope that any of you candy lovers in New Orleans will help as well. There is a great selection of sugar free candy for diabetics and health-conscious candy lovers. By Mardi Gras they will open the back patio and have Mad Hatter Tea Parties for kids. I think the store is a great addition to the neighborhood and am happy to have an excuse to eat more gummi bears.
