If you've been in Georgia any length of time beyond a day, you'll likely have come across "churchkhela," those long brown waxy-looking sticks with knobbly bits. Known as the Georgian Snickers, lasting months and ideal for every occasion, they can be bought almost anywhere in the city. You can even make them yourself on a trip to the Kakheti wine-making region, but why do that when you have the best brand right on your doorstep?

Badagi stores offer smooth, soft churchkhelas with walnuts or hazelnuts; red grape or white. They also offer dried fruit and a selection of wine if you really want to indulge in the Georgian experience. It may be a small locale, but it is heaven (and quite addictive!).
