Freak Lunchbox wants to move this mural and replace it with one featuring candy.

A Halifax candy store wants to replace a tall ships mural with a new candy-themed painting.

Freak Lunchbox posted a call for submissions to its Facebook and Twitter accounts on Thursday. It said the privately funded artwork would replace the existing mural at 1729 Barrington St. "with work that is more reflective of the new youthful and urban spirit of Downtown Halifax."

The store put two requirements on the planned new image: candy must be central to the theme and the artwork should cover the entire side of the building. 

Freak Lunchbox said it will relocate the current mural, but didn't say where it would go.
