Candy Me Up is another Grossmont Center shop that will make your jaw drop. This is the largest distributor of candy in San Diego and the number one place you should visit to buy loads of Easter bites for your celebration. 

Candy Me Up is known for selling their sweet treats in massive quantities (like 5-pound bags!) that work great for assorted candy buffets or Easter bunny piñatas. If you choose to buy your Easter candy in bulk, each order is available either wrapped or unwrapped and can be used with jars, tongs, bags, and other supplies that make for easy access to guests.

No matter what type of delicious treats you have in mind, Candy Me Up has most likely got it. They even specialize in retro, Mexican or chamoy-flavored candies, as well as champagne-flavored gummy bears!
