Choose Between Two Options

  • $10 for $20 worth of nostalgic or scoop-your-own candies

Nostalgic candies treat taste buds to bygone favorites⎯such as peppermint wheels, Razzles, butterscotch buttons, and root-beer barrels⎯ranging from $0.05 to $1.75 apiece. Stocked in bulk bins, scoop-your-own candies include contemporary confections such as Sour Patch Kids, gummy worms, and sour watermelons ($3.99/half lb.).

  • $72 for a chocolate-fountain rental (a $145 value)

Shaped like a towering, four-tiered wedding cake, the chocolate fountain dispenses toothsome chocolate onto marshmallows, pretzels, and other included dipping items to satisfy the sweet teeth of up to 75 people.

The Village Sweet Shoppe

Razzles, Sky Bars, Zotz, Bull’s Eyes. The sisters who co-own The Village Sweet Shoppe purposely stock a section of nostalgic candies whose names leave most contemporary youths scratching their heads. Nonetheless, visitors of all ages grow wide-eyed over rows and rows of bins filled with colorful gummy bears, sour watermelons, malt balls, nonpareils, espresso beans, and taffies, and many find themselves sneaking a bite the moment their self-served scoops are rung up. Like Proust's madeleine cake or George Washington's boyhood wig, the candies transport visitors back to their childhoods, which was the ultimate goal of proprietors Joie Smith and Kate Mayer. When they're not tracking down hard-to-find sweets, the sisters take their goods on the go, stocking candy buffets or chocolate fountains at local weddings and birthday parties.
