Who isn’t a freak for candy? Lucky for us, Montreal is one of the many locations throughout Canada where Freak Lunchbox chose to open one of their wacky candy stores.

A real life Willy Wonka shop, Freak Lunchbox is really as wild as it sounds. Originally founded in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Freak Lunchbox is a family owned business inspired by circus sideshows and roadside attractions.

They’re located on the Main, right near Schwartz’s Deli. It’s also pretty hard to miss with all the bright colours and the wacky window display. You can be sure to find all of the classics and beyond at Freak Lunchbox, where their goal is to stock up with the weirdest (chocolate covered crickets) and craziest (bacon flavoured) candy. 


While Freak Lunchbox’s inventory is mainly vintage, gourmet, and wacky candy, they also offer their clientele out of the ordinary smoothies made in store. Freak Lunchbox is also the place where you can find crazy gadgets and toysfor any themed party, or simply just for out of the ordinary decoration. Why not get yourself a bacon scented air freshener for your car? You name it, Freak Lunchbox has it all and that’s what makes it so great.

They make it a point to restock all of their items regularly. The first time you visit their store, it will take you on a whirlwind of throwback Thursdays, reminding you of your childhood. No matter how many times you visit Freak Lunchbox, you will always be surprised. There are so many things to look at in the store, you won’t know where to start.


Their stores have been graced with the presence of many A-list celebrities like Lucy Liu, Julianne Moore, Ethan Hawke, and many others. Opened all year round, 7 days a week, Freak Lunchbox should be the next stop for any candy-crazed lover! Follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to get your daily sugar high.
