An expression describing someone who is terribly happy with the circumstance they are in (but perhaps a little overloaded with choices, not quite sure what to do first because it all looks so good). The assumption is that children will go wild in a candy store, grabbing handfuls of all their different favorites, given the chance. This phrase is well-known enough to sound cliche to many English speakers.
