Powell's (Incredible) Sweet Shoppe

Pamela2 | Apr 4, 2007 03:39 PM

Today I discovered Powell's Sweet Shoppe in Novato, CA. I'll never be the same. It's a franchise, which is difficult to believe. The stores look like a very upscale candy boutique, but without the upscale prices. While there is one in Boulder and one is Boise, Idaho, they are mainly in San Francisco Bay Area in Novato in Marin County, Windsor, Petaluma and Healdsburg in Sonoma County. Los Gatos in South Bay has one too and others are coming to the Central Valley and Southern California. They have every kind of candy you remember from when you were a kid, and old fashioned soda flavors, every possible kind of "penny candy," and candy bar you've ever enjoyed in your entire life and so much more that it boggles the mind. You can buy M&Ms in all the designer colors and flavors. The selection is HUGE. So, if you're looking for some really wonderful and unique stuff to place in Easter Baskets or for any other occasion, you'll find exactly what you're looking for at Powell's Sweet Shoppe. Their locations are on their Web site: Oh! and try the gelato. It's absolutely to die for.
