Sugar Shop

“I’ll take you to the candy shop”, 50 Cent. But, I will too, in a totally different context. There’s nothing more exciting than entering a store filled with candies, just waiting to be eaten. I passed by Sugar Shop in Cobble Hill and had to stop in.

They have nostalgic candy, as well as self-serve stations filled with gummies, sour candies, and chocolates. They also have a room dedicated to parties and events, where you can make your sugary dreams come true.

With over 180 candy choices to make, I would have loved to just have it all. But, I got my act together, gained some self control and went for a few different options.

Some of my favorites included their Pecan Cinnamon Bun candy, Dark Chocolate Covered Marzipan, and Ice Cream Sundae Malt Balls. Yum.

If you have a sweet tooth, and find yourself in Nashville, look no further than Savannah’s Candy Kitchen. They’re the largest candy company in the Southeast, housing fresh, handmade confections.

Best known for their pralines, they’re producing them onsite with on-demand samples, and you can best believe I got one. They were sweet and delicious and melt in your mouth. They also make their popcorn right in front of your eyes.

You can also get samples of the popcorn, and, yeah, I did that too. It’s not just regular  popcorn, it’s fancy popcorn flavors like Chocolate Pecan Caramel Corn, and Pralines N Cream, just to name a few.

In addition, you can find monster sized candy apples, with flavors for everyone. If you’re still searching for more, they have a variety of taffy flavors, fudges, gelato, and other chocolate confections. And if some of these are a little too sophisticated for the kiddies, there’s a wall of self-serve gummies, fruit and sour candies to load your bag up with.
