David Does It: Sassafras Sweet Shoppe vintage candy store

Posted: Updated:

If your sweetie has a sweet tooth, a Winter Park store may have just the perfect gift for Valentine's Day.

Sassafras Sweet Shoppe offers hard and soft candies of all kinds, including hard-to-find vintage varieties.

Never heard of Sen Sen? It's a licorice candy dating from the 1880s. And "Necco wafers were sent to troops back in the early 1900s because they wouldn't spoil or break," Sassafras owner Rebecca McCamy says.

"The first thing we sold out of two years ago -- in four days -- when we opened were the Larvets. They're real worms with seasoning on them," McCamy says.

Sassafras is offering a special deal for Fox 35 viewers at @DavidMartinTV.
