A Sucker Born Every Minute: Rio’s New Lollipop

Posted Friday, June 1, 2012 by in Las Vegas, Las Vegas Casinos, Rio All-Suites Hotel & Casino, Shopping. No Comments.

Question: Can Las Vegas ever have too many candy shops? Answer: Seriously, how could you ask such a ridiculous question? It’s candy.

The brand-spanking-new Lollipop store at Rio Las Vegas has entered the Sin City candy fray with a sweet twist: the shop provides epic candy flashbacks by offering nostalgic confectionery classics like candy buttons, Smarties, Chuckles, Bit-O-Honey, Sugar Babies, Zotz and many more.

Leave prudence at the door. It's Vegas.

A visit to Lollipop is like hopping aboard a time machine. How about some Bubblicious gum or Laffy Taffy or Pixy Stix or SweeTarts or Tootsie Rolls?

Yeah, we’re right there with you.

One of everything, thanks.

The store also serves up other sweets like a gargantuan gummi bear and the world’s largest candy necklace.

That's a full pound of gummi, and it's the most popular item in the store.

As a Las Vegas blog, we’re partial to the wide selection of Sin City and casino-inspired treats.

When it comes to chocolate playing cards, we say, "Double up to catch up!"

Of course, no candy store named “Lollipop” would dare not have an ample supply of suckers.

It's a happy place.

Bonus hook-up: Customers that present a convention badge get 10% off their purchase.

Lollipop cupcakes

The cupcakes come from Gigi's Cupcakes. The company has "cupcakes" in its name, so they have to be good.

Another Lollipop location will soon open at Caesars Palace in the Appian Way Shops, and yet another is expected to follow at Paris Las Vegas, already home to Sugar Factory American Brasserie.

Sure, some places have banned bubble gum cigarettes. What part of "This is Vegas!" don't you get?
