Candy Stores are the Mario Party 8 version of the classic item shop from its predecessors. As its name implies, the Candy Stores sell Candy to the characters for eating. Candy costs between five and twenty coins and can be purchased at anytime from the Candy Store. The Bowser and Bullet Candy can only be bought at the candy stores in Bowser's Warped Orbit as their effects are board specific. On the last turn of each game, the candy store will be closed.
- Occasionally, the Candy Shop has a 'Big Bargain Sale', where candy is cheaper than normal.
- If the player has less than 15 coins, two or all three of the candies offered may be identical, usually the Twice Candy.
