Customers Say the Darndest Things {Anoka Candy Shop}

Retro Candy

Happy mid-July!  Today, we thought we’d share a little of what we’ve been hearing around the shop recently.  With kids on summer vacation, road trippin’ families, and downtown Anoka festivals, we’ve been hearing a lot of random conversations, had a ton of new customers, and a bunch of different questions, and comments, lately.  We’re taking […]

Our First Candy Review! {Family Fun near Anoka}

Kits Taffy Review

Welcome to blog number one of our candy, taste test, series!  (We didn’t have a more official idea for a name–so, that’s what we’re calling it.  For now.)  This idea was born as we were standing in the candy store yesterday, trying to remember what Razzles tasted like, wondering what Kit Taffy is all about, […]

Chocolate Coin Fun { Anoka MN Candy Store }

Candy Coin Craft Ideas

We thought we’d have a little chocolate coin fun with today’s blog!  We had an Anoka mom in the candy store the other day asking if we could order, for her, the coins in bulk; she needed them for her child’s upcoming, Jake and the Never Land Pirates birthday party.  (She was debating between that, […]

D.I.Y Mother’s Day Crafts and Gifts { Anoka Area Candy Delivery }

We were just next door, chatting with our friends in our favorite flower shop about how busy they get with delivery during Mother’s Day week and how they’re already getting ready for it all.  It was in this conversation that we realized that Mother’s Day is in just over a week, holy cow.  (Does it […]

How It’s Made { Twin Cities Candy Blog }

Guess what!?  We’re working on a new, super fun, candy idea for you!  It’s going to be boxy and yummy and just in time for summer birthday presents, baby shower gifts, and just any celebration, in general–but, that’s all we’re going to say.  How vague was that!?  It’s like when someone posts on Facebook, ‘OMG!

Spring Break and Easter Ideas { Anoka Candy Blog }

New Easter Candy

Somehow, this year, the kids in the Anoka-Hennepin School District lucked out with an beautiful Spring break!  The weather actually feels like Spring out there. :)  (That didn’t seem to happen often when break was earlier in the year.)  I always think it’s funny how excited they are about getting out of school–but, by the […]

jelly bean recipes and ideas easter

The calendar, and the weather guys, all keep tellin’ us it’s Spring–but, up here, in Anoka, Minnesota–it feels a bit more winter-like lately.  We had some snow this past weekend (though the South Metro got much more than us folks up here in the Northwest chunk of the Twin Cities), and we have some snowy/rainy […]

Easter Treats Trivia { Candy Store near Minneapolis }

Well, here it comes, another holiday that fills the kids with candy, and has us sneaking it when they aren’t looking!  (Those are our favorites. :) )  Easter is right around the corner and even though yes, the Easter Bunny does most of the work–we still need to, sometimes, help out a bit.  (It’s a […]

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 […]
