This Ain’t Your Grandpa’s Flamingo: Our First Date With Lick
You see a lot of amazing things in Las Vegas. A Denny’s with a wedding chapel. Daycare in casinos. Strippers on pirate ships. You know, the usual Vegas stuff.
Recently, Lick, a new candy store, opened at Flamingo Las Vegas, and we were reminded just how wacky Sin City can get.
Because while this confection shop offers a lot of traditional candy, it also sells a mind-boggling selection of candy that made even a seen-it-all Las Vegas blog blush.
Oh, it gets crazier, trust us.
The sheer variety of obscene candy at Lick is truly arresting. And like video arcades in casinos, we weren’t sure how to feel about it being on display amidst the candy traditionally favored by kids.
Oh, well, maybe parents shouldn’t be bringing kids into a store called Lick in the first place. Just a thought.
The retail team at Flamingo certainly doesn’t shy away from adult merchandise. Lick is just down the hall from Flamingo’s Go Sexy store, a no-holds-barred sex shop for those looking to make their Vegas visit one to write home about.
Some of our favorite adult candy items at Lick are the ones where we’re not even sure they tried to be clever. “Just slap the word ‘penis’ on there, already!,” somebody said at a candy factory somewhere.
As the Flamingo’s customers skew toward an older crowd, we’re pretty sure Lick should keep a defibrillator handy.
Lick is near the hotel’s bustling lobby area, a great location to snag some business as guests are looking for keepsakes before they travel home.
Pop in for a look. We promise some surprises.
Enjoy the other off-color offerings at The Strip’s newest candy store, Lick at Flamingo Las Vegas. Who knew falling into a diabetic coma could be so much fun? And uncomfortable. But mostly fun. It’s Las Vegas, after all.
