Hollywood Candy in Omaha, Nebraska



If you have any plans to visit Omaha, Nebraska you must stop at Hollywood Candy.  It is located in the Old Market area and worth the trip.  They have the largest selection of candy in the area.  From retro candy to the latest releases, they have it all.

My family recently stopped there on our trip from Kansas City to Omaha.  The kids were in awe, and the adults were kids all over again.  Every childhood memory was found in that store.  We truly were kids in a candy store!







After you get done at the candy store, make sure to visit the Hollywood Pinball and Arcade Museum within the same building.  It houses over 85 games from different eras.  The games are all ready for token play.


   
Also located here is the Hollywood Theater, Fairmont Antiques, diner, and letterpress.  All are fun to visit and worth your time.

**Disclaimer:  My family and I were provided tickets as guests to the museum. 
All opinions are my own.
