Delicious mix of fresh, house-made desserts and classic candies. Fun NM creations. Great local flare.

An interesting place, with its range of Breaking Bad merchandise. But the owners are very friendly and helpful and the candy is good.

We stopped in here after our RV tour to pick up Breaking Bad souvenirs. There was a long line up, which would be ok, but it was very slow-moving. We also found that the prices for the BrBa souvenirs were very high. Instead, we bought t-shirts and mugs at the Guerilla t-shirt shop just down the street.

They will also show you the size of a potential purchase - that's very helpful. The staff is helpful and friendly... More

While we've never watched Breaking Bad, when we learned Albuquerque's candy lady had a shop here thought, "why not??" And visited. Staff was pleasant and quirky, very talkative so be prepared to spend time there. Items available for sale include several kinds of chocolate and the rock candy form of meth cooked on Breaking Bad as well as shirts and... More

Way too expensive. Wouldn't want to take children in there for a quick snack. Not as many choices as I figured.
