Sweet Stuff on Washtenaw

 

continued

There's no seating at Gji's other than a single bench reserved for kids, who sometimes behave like kids in a candy store. "If the kids get really intense, the parents can tell them to sit on the time-out bench and watch TV while they eat their candy." The Kimbles keep it tuned to channels like the Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon.

Kimble himself knows the dangers of being a kid in a candy shop. "As a kid, I was told don't eat candy because of cavities," he said, and so he didn't eat much candy growing up. Now people suggest to him that with more than 200 kinds of candy on the shelves, he should experiment and try a different one every day, so he knows his inventory inside and out. But, he says, "the temptation's too much. What I tell people is, we can almost do anything as long as it's in moderation. My moderation is to refrain from testing a different piece every day."

Gji's Sweet Shoppe, 3368 Washtenaw. 369-3012. Mon.-Sat. 11 a.m.-6 p.m., Sun. noon-4 p.m.
