Here are some places to get started!

They are stocked with all the traditional licorices, gummy worms, and chocolate rocks you dreamed of as a kid. In addition, it sports a hefty bulk section with basic dry goods, pastas, beans, peas, and loose bagels and donuts.

Haggen has quite a few locations around Bellingham but I am most familiar with the Haggen in Sehome Village.
