Sugar, sweets, and honey. The things happiness is made of. If you have a sweet tooth and like to try out new and interesting candy, we have a treat for you. We found five candy shops that are unique and most people don’t even know they exist. Get ready for some mouth-watering stuff.
1. Columbia Candy Kitchen – This Danish candy store can be found in Columbia. It was opened in the late 1800s and has a more traditional approach to making candy. All candy is cooked in copper kettles and cooled on marble tables. Their specialties include almond bark, honeycomb, peanut butter fudge, and fruit jellies.
2. Willy Wonka Shop – The Willy Wonka Shop can be found in New York City. It sells the 12 kinds of Wonka candy as well as some exceptional items. The shop also has a replica of the garden that was used in the movie, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
3. Big Top Candy Shop – You will have to travel to Austin, Texas, for this treat. The candy store is circus themed and has a wide variety of circus-related candies and treats. It is also well known for its soda fountain.
4. Economy Candy – This store is situated in Manhattan and gives new meaning to the word bulk. They don’t specialize in any specific type of candy, but they sell large versions of popular candy and also sells everything in bulk. For giant sized treats, this seems to be the place to go.
5. Nisshodo Mochiya – Not sure what this is? It is a candy store in Honolulu, Hawaii, that carries Japanese type candy. They have sweets called mochi, manju, chi chi dango, and Kinako Dango. Most of these sweets are covered in mocha. They sound really yummy even if we have never tried them.
These shops sound amazing. We will definitely be planning a trip to all of these shops. Our mouths are watering and I’m sure yours is too. If you are close to these stores, visit them and leave a comment about your experience.
