With a focus on small, fresh batches made frequently, Antique Sweets stocks its old-fashioned-style candy store with a bevy of confections, hand-dipped chocolates and barks, truffles, homemade ice cream, and more. The confectionary’s signature Bulldog Bites ($2.25/square, $17.25/lb.) feature fresh pecans drizzled with homemade caramel and covered in a thin layer of chocolate. Peering out from the store’s glass display cases are peanut or pecan brittle ($4.75/half-pound bag), flavored truffles ($0.95/piece), and chocolate-dipped dried cranberry cups ($0.85/piece). The kid’s corner corrals nostalgic and modern candy alike, ranging from Necco wafers to gummy bears and Pixy Stix, and an impressive gift selection allows generous treat-hounds to gift tasty goodies for birthdays or reward themselves for remembering to send their wife a card for Millard Fillmore’s birthday.
