Cupid Candies. It is an institution that dates back generations. You took your date to the Coral Theatre and stopped at Cupid's for a Shake. They need your business now more than ever.

Cupid Candies has the best milkshakes and malts by far. They use the best ingredients and the shop has a "Fifties" atmosphere. You won't be disappointed.
