O’Neal, who was accompanied by girlfriend, reality star Nicole Alexander, sampled sweets in Sugar Factory’s retail store, picking up heaping handfuls of sour gummy candies, chocolate-covered gummy bears and a few tank tops for Alexander. The doting duo loved Sugar Factory’s signature Couture Pops and playfully posed for photos with fans.
