At Sweet!, boxes of Bottlecaps and buckets of salt-water taffy coexist peacefully with bacon- and buffalo-wing-flavored sodas. The eclectic candy boutique infuses the image and atmosphere of an old-fashioned candy shop with a more modern sensibility, stocking its shelves with classic and hard-to-find candies from around the world. One section highlights foreign candies and confections from America's past, another showcases vegan and gluten-free sweets, and a separate display case shelters fine chocolates. Along one wall, massive refrigerators chill more than 200 vintage and independently produced sodas, including several root beers and at least one preserved prehistoric snowman. Sweet! also encourages customers to play with their food: at candy parties, staff lead kids through activities ranging from sugary craft workshops to evening dances.
