The Candy House
"The Candy House," better known as Keana's Candyland, has confounded area motorists since lollypops began appearing on the front lawn in the '90s. This candy shop on SE Milwaukie is about as one of a kind as it gets and dedicated to the memory of the owner's deceased grandchild.
Every room is themed, the latest addition being a forested dinning room decorated with prop trees that were used in the filming of The Hunted. Fake pies, frosting and, Jesus paintings, not so strangely enough, fill a room on the ground floor. The bathroom upstairs is encompassed by a 360 degree undersea mural.
On the way back from a trip to Oregon City a while ago, I stopped in and purchased a bunch of gummi candy shaped like pizzas and smoking pipes. I took a few photos. Click here or on the walkway above for a Flickr gallery.
A candy shop decorated with cupcake chandeliers and props from a Benecio del Toro action thriller? The owners should start franchising.
