Sugar Heaven, Back Bay, Boston

Ahhh to be a kid again-the time when your biggest complaint was too much homework, where the world had amazing possibility, and imagination was king. Childhood- a far cry from today's world of deadlines, taxes, and health care concerns. Wouldn't you love to go back-even just for a short time and leave your cares behind? I'm going to assume you are shaking your head yes-and tell you about the PERFECT place to return to childhood, or at least pretend to!

Sugar Heaven is opening their 5th and newest store on Boylston Street in Boston in just a few days I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek last night. Oh my goodness! A candy store of a child's dreams- with floor to ceiling containers with just the most fantastic goodies, beautifully laid out. To be honest- I don't think I can do the store as much justice with words- so perhaps a photographic journey?
Candy- as far as the eye can see!

Pretty isn't it?
I loved their displays

WITH the old fashioned feel? Love it!

What an amazing store! Everything was beautifully displayed, with bright colors, fun puns, and great attention to detail really making all of the different brands and types attractive.

What I really loved was the huge assortment- it seemed as though every candy type, and brand was represented, even down to meal supplement bars. Can't beat that for diversity!! They have even coined this idea with their motto "If we don't have what you're craving, we'll be happy to find it for you." Now that is a candy/indulgence store!

I am really excited for this new location to open, but when you visit-don't be surprised if you find your self looking for an Ooompa Loompa or Willy definitely had that feel!

Looks like a fun place! I just visited Dylan's Candy Bar in NYC, and it reminds me of that. Now I need to convince my hubby to go on a trip to Boston so I can visit Sugar Heaven! :)
