This will come as exciting news to the children of Bernal Heights and underemployed dentists throughout San Francisco: A new candy shop has opened at 521 Cortland, right across from the library.
Called the Rock Candy Snack Shop, the store is co-owned by a very friendly woman named Heather Young who looks exactly like Mother Mary See — if Mother Mary See was a lot less grandmotherly, and a lot more of a younger, tattooed, 21st century urban mom who could potentially moonlight as the lead singer for a post-punk rockabilly band. (I mean that in a good way.)
Heather said the Rock Candy Snack Shop will emphasize artisanal and organic candies made in the good ol’ USA.
I brought the Cub Reporter for some taste-testing, and she chose a lovely, three-dollar bag of fruit-flavored jelly beans.
The kid loved ’em, and I did too — they were delicious, and tasted exceptionally fresh (if there is such a thing as a fresh jelly bean).
So welcome to the neighborhood, Rock Candy Snack Shop… and rock on.
