This new Ossington bodega sells an impressive selection of rare and nostalgic snacks

Take your snacking to a whole new level with obscure chocolate, chips, candy and cereal at Toronto’s newest convenience store-on-steroids. Vancouver-based Lucky’s Exotic Bodega has headed east, opening its fourth location on one of the coolest streets in the world  — Ossington. Swing by for hundreds of novelty goodies, from sweet, salty, savoury or sour – there’s something for everyone in this hipster-stoner-snack food lovers paradise.

Try fun brands like Rap Snacks, which offers a ton of chip flavours and sodas named after popular rap artists, like Rick Ross Sweet Chili Lemon Pepper chips or a variety of flavoured lemonade, juice and sweet tea.

Not into hip hop? Then indulge your inner child instead with cereals chock-full of as much nostalgia as there is sugar. Magic Fruity Pebbles, Cocoa Puffs, Muhammad Ali Wheaties, and Cinnamon Sugar Krispies – the list goes on and on. Fill your cart and then your bowl.


The spot also sells imported treats, so shoppers can sample unique tastes from China, Korea and Mexico. Try Korea’s Chocolate Churro Turtle Wafers or Wildberry-flavoured Skittles – a staple in China. Looking for something with a little kick? Grab a bag of Cheetos Colmillos. Colmillosis Spanish for fang, and so explains the shape of this unique snack. These puffy chips pack a punch of heat as you pop them in your mouth. Great starter if you are trying Mexican chips for the first time.

Beyond snack foods, you can snag unique sauces and spreads, like Chick-Fil-A’s sauce or Cadbury Crunchie spread, baked goods and even gummy macaroni and cheese.


Everything except ice cream bars are also available for online ordering. Just head to their website to browse the endless options.

Want to come in and overstimulate your eyes (and taste buds) in person? The 213 Ossington Avenue spot is open daily from 9:00a.m until midnight.
