If we’ve got any excuse to get a piñata, we head to this Mexican candy and party store chain to watch our kids' mouths drop open at the mind-boggling selection. It’s always a dilemma: Should they go for the decked-out princess or the mega-monster that’s waaaay bigger than they are? Once the big decision is made, we buy a couple of mega-sized bags of sweet and spicy imported sweets to fill it, then let the kids pick out a few extra treats for themselves. They especially love the ice-cream-flavored paletas (lollipops) and tropical fruit-flavored gummies. We like the bargain we get compared to the big party store chains. Other locations throughout the city and suburbs.
