Hello! Welcome back to Sweet River’s, awesome, little candy blog! We hope that January, up here in Anoka, MN, finds you warm, sane, and happy.

It’s June; welcome to National Candy Month! (Yeah, they have days, and months, for all kinds of random things–this though, well, this is one of the most important of all the random things, months.

Never, in my life, have I appreciated Candy Buttons more than now–I have a toddler. They’re the tiniest candy, and they take hand eye coordination, and fine motor skills to enjoy; therefore, they take him a long time, and some good concentration, in order to eat just a few little treats. I liked them too, […]

It’s a Pez Perfect Post { Twin Cities Candy Shop }

Badtz Maru Pez Dispenser

So, were you the kind of kid who used a PEZ dispenser for it’s intended, single-serve, purpose–or, were you the other kind of kid that just got one because it looked cool, and then just ate the package of PEZ by itself because it was easier?  (We were totally the latter–just in case there was any […]
