Sweet Stuff - Blooms Candy & Soda Pop Shop
Lets talk about suckers. We all remember the giant swirly lollipops from our youth, along with Dum-Dum's and Safe T Pops too. So how about some grown up suckers for the sophisticated gourmet palate?
That brings us to DAS. Whether it be bacon, pomegranate, ginger or caramel, DAS has a sucker for you.
Lets do a quick run down...
On the heels of the new version of Alice in Wonderland we just received a shipment of retro tin lunch boxes with Alice and her wonderland friends
When we knew we were moving we decided we needed a gumball machine for the shop. So we found one. And it was big.
And so began the Giant Gumball Machine Refurbishment Project (GGMRP). The GGMRP took us approximately 30 hours to refurbish (when I say us it took me 1.5 hours, my daughter Reese .5 hours and John 28). We removed all the plexiglass and replaced it with new, completely disassembled it, sanded it (thanks to Reese who learned how to use a palm sander), cleaned it (it was sitting in a field behind someones house) added 5 cans worth or cherry red spray paint and voila'!
In order to have it ready for our grand opening a few weeks ago John stayed up until 5 AM finishing it up. Yay to John for getting it done becuase the GGMRP results are really cool!
Stop by and give it a crank....Reese did!
Really we dont want you to keep quiet about it but it made for a catchy title. This is our first candy blog and what the heck, sometimes cheesy works for me.
So whats all the Whispa-ing about? The Cadbury Whispa chocolate bar! For you international chocolate lovers, this is similar to an Aero bar, which has aerated chocolate leaving bubbles of air inside the bar.
We just brought these in last week along with several other UK / British Candy favorites!
Maltesers are similar to the American Whoppers but with a better accent. A malted center wrapped in chocolate thats delish (and I know because I love Whoppers).
And finally, the Cadbury Cream Egg Twisted Bar. You know those Cadbury Cream Eggs that you thought were only available at Easter Time? Think again! You can now have that gooey rich deliciousness all year round with he Cadbury Cream Egg Twisted Bar!!
Go on now, stop in and check out all our sweeties! Were in our new location at 1104 West Main Street in Historic Downtown Carrollton.
