You had dreams that looked like this when you were a kid.

At Tel Aviv's famous open air Carmel Market those dreams are a reality. That's because among the many stalls there hawking fresh provisions, several are solely in the business of selling sweets.

Bucket after bucket of candy beckons, the symphony of colors courtesy of the vast assortment of gummies and licorice, nougat and chocolate, gum balls, malt balls and lollipops.

This is where it's OK to become a kid again — stand and observe long enough and you'll notice most customers are adults—if just for the amount of time it takes to shovel a handful or two into a little plastic bag .

Oh how sweet it is to spend the day at Carmel Market.
