Seventh Spotlight- B. CANDY

 

We stopped into the B. CANDY flagship store in Corona del Mar last weekend for a quick ice cream treat and couldn’t help but swoon over their newly stocked inventory and baked goods.

No one says it better than B. CANDY themselves when they describe their shop as a “sweet-lovers paradise”. Whether you are a confectionary connoisseur or just in the mood to treat yourself to some sweets and a gift, this one-stop-shop has all the sugar fixin’s and confetti you could ever dream. This family owned and operated shop will have you leaving their store on cotton candy cloud 9.

Their vibrant décor is a real life candy land.  The ice cream and lollipop statues and unicorn painted exterior wall have become an iconic local hot spot for pictures.  We couldn’t help but take a few photo ourselves.

They have every type of new candy on the market along with the old classics like Necco Waffers, and button candies and jawbreakers from when we were kids in the 80’s (yes, we may only be in our 30’s, but in Candy years that’s old).

We spent some time before opening with Brenda, the shift manger on duty, to get a behind the scenes look at their baked goods and to chat with some of the employees about why people love this sweet shop so much.

Frankly speaking, this place is on trend.  You can’t help but fall into sensory heaven with the smell of homemade ice cream and the brightly colored merchandise.  Did we mention they have some amazing ice cream flavors like maple bacon, chocolate covered potato chips, and circus animals.  Not into the trendy flavors?  They still have you covered with their homemade classics and citrus sorbets.

 During our visit, she was whipping up some ice cream cone cake pops and putting the finishing touches on a minion pop.

We quickly pulled together some of the goodies they had on the shelves for a girls unicorn and a unisex superheros party.
