Sweet U, the tiny bulk candy store tucked into a nook between Oasis Grill and Rendez-Vous Cafe on South University, closed in July. Mike Abi, manager of Rendez-Vous, thinks he knows why. "People, they don't like candy!" he says disapprovingly. "It's not good for you! Also the economy--people want to spend their money on something more healthy," he says, gesturing toward his fresh-squeezed juices and smoothies.

Oasis, Sweet U, and Rendez-Vous are all owned by Nizar Elawar. He plans to replace the candy shop with a place that sells pizza by the slice, but it's a big project, Abi says, requiring a new hood and ventilation system and pizza ovens, so it won't happen overnight.    (end of article)
