Have you ever walked into a candy store and not instantly felt better? From all the different colors to the nostalgic feeling you’ll get when seeing all those sugary treats you used to eat as a kid, candy stores simply have a fun atmosphere by default, which is why so many of us love to stop by and pay any of the local candy shops here in Palm Beach County a visit every now and then. And if you're going through the stressful process of buying or selling a home in the area, there's nothing wrong with treating yourself to something with a little extra sugar and a whole lot of extra calories, which in some instances, we highly recommend ;)
As you might expect, Palm Beach County’s best candy stores have a little something for just about any occasion, from birthday and graduation parties to every little kid’s favorite time of year— Halloween. And while anybody can pick up a candy bar or a bag of suckers at the local grocery store, candy stores often sell custom candy packages, gourmet chocolates, and literally just about anything else you can think of to satisfy your sweet tooth.
So now that the calendar has flipped over to October and Halloween is right around the corner, we thought now might be the perfect time to highlight what we consider to be the top candy shops to visit in all of Palm Beach County.
Self-described as a candy store that specializes in innovate sweets, fun novelty gifts, and giant candy, IT’SUGAR is everything a candy store should be. And along with all their sugary treats, they also offer some pretty fun novelty gifts too, making it a great place to hit before a party.
If chocolate is your thing, there’s nothing better than a quick stop into Hoffman’s Chocolate over in Palm Beach Gardens. The assortment of baskets and gift for literally any occasion is impressive, and the milk chocolate covered pretzels are out of this world.
From gigantic lollipops and sour gummy worms to jelly beans and every kind of candy bar you can imagine, the appropriately named Sugar Happens candy store has all the classics. And believe it or not, the store inventory goes a bit beyond candy and even includes a wide-range of popcorn flavors too, which is awesome to have around the house for movie nights in!
