Salt water taffy feels like such a summery candy to us. (Also, take a guess as to what we just got in. ;) ) It stays soft, the colors are bright and cheery, the flavors feel like how summer would taste (you know, if it had a taste); and, quite simply, taffy makes us feel cheery! […]

Candy Button History and Recipe { Candy Buffet in Twin Cities }

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, […]

This could be one of our most controversial posts ever; but, we need to talk about it. Here goes…we love candy corn.* We love everything about it.

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 […]

Willy Wonka Movie Trivia { Minnesota Candy Store }

I remember back when I first watched Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.  (Of course, the Gene Wilder one.  The Johnny Depp one just isn’t anywhere near the same and I’m still confused why anyone felt the need to remake perfection. ;) )  Willy Wonka was the first movie that: A) intrigued me, B) excited […]
