Hallo an alle!

Can you please help out a struggling beginner? I need to translate the sentence: Next time you will be able to buy this candy.

My try is: Nächstes Mal, du dieses Bonbon kaufen kannst.

The context is friendly banter with a German speaker. Any and all help will be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

    Hi,
    At the risk of being accused of nitpicking,
    I'm wondering if the original isn't intended to mean :

    Das nächste Mal wirst du diese Bonbons kaufen können.

    I find Perseas's version more idiomatic. German avoids Futur I if the future meaning is contextually obvious.
