The holidays are over and the resolutions have been made and broken. All that weight you packed on over the stretch - c'mon, get used to it. No, just joking actually. It's nice to see so many people walking briskly, all ready to turn over a new leaf. But it's been shown that small rewards along the way help to succeed at longer term tasks. Do I hear candy calling? And candy CAN be integrated into a more healthy lifestyle. Just remember, as almost every doctor would tell you, everything in moderation.
The BEST Caramels EVER*

Bequet Salted Butterscotch caramels Béquet Caramels, of Bozeman, Montana, have been one of our most popular items since we introduced their Celtic Sea Salt® Vanilla caramels back in 2011. Robin Béquet slow simmers the finest ingredients to create the smoothest, creamiest, most exquisite tasting gourmet caramel. Each batch is hand-crafted under the watchful eye of a master caramel chef. Béquet® Gourmet Caramel is all natural - no artificial colors or flavors, no preservatives, and they're all certified gluten-free and kosher.

They've just released the latest edition to their flavor line - Salted Butterscotch. It's a butter caramel that blends the sweet nostalgic flavor of butterscotch with the sophisticated crunch of Celtic Sea Salt®. And we can honestly say it's a tough choice between it and their original Sea Salt Vanilla. Though if it were up to us, we'd have both.

They really are the best ever, individually or in bags. We'd suggest a bag - you will not want to run out.

Valentine's Day
Less Than a Month Away

Valentine's Day It's mid January, and Valentine's Day is Saturday, February 14. Still plenty of time - NOT. Don't wait until the last minute and get that worn Whitman Sampler! Why not take the stress and amnesia away and just take care of it now!

Let Village Candy put together a beautiful basket of hand-selected chocolates and treats. We can work within your budget, and within your love's tastes (if they don't like candy, you're on your own). All we need is a day to pull things together and package them so you'll be proud. Or pick from our freshly-packed retro boxes. And we can even surprise him/her/it by delivering or shipping.

Just give us a call and say hello. But then, please, continue the conversation...
What Says Valentine's Day?
Besides Your Mate's Reminders

Chocolate Strawberries
Chocolate Covered Strawberries make a statement for Valentine's Day. But they're notoriously perishable.

This year Village Candy has a unique opportunity to offer the freshest chocolate covered strawberries. And these aren't just any strawberries - they're behemoths, and they're actually encapsulated, not just dipped - more chocolate, less greenery and stemmage. And this isn't just any chocolate - it's fine Trello Ciocolatto. Since they're located close by, we're guaranteed the freshest possible fruit, freshly chocolated. But they MUST be ordered in advance. Give us a call and let us know how many pounds you're interested in.

Cream and Chocolate Soda Tasting
Saturday, February 7, 2015

Sewickley's 2nd Annual Chocolate Walk is taking place Saturday, February 7 from noon to 3:00 pm, and Village Candy is one of many businesses participating. We thought we'd take advantage of that event by scheduling a soda tasting that very evening, from 5:30 to 6:30. So we did just that!

We'll be doing our usual effervescent razzle dazzle, but this
Coco Fizz Soda
time with a twist. Along with Cream Soda, we'll try out three Chocolate Sodas.

The mix of creamy chocolate and bubbly carbonation in Coco Fizz Chocolate Soda excites
Rocket Fizz Chocolate Soda
the taste buds for a dessert-like experience. Sweetened with cane sugar, Coco Fizz, made by Durango, CO-based Zuberfizz, uses only the highest quality ingredients.

Rocket Fizz All Natural Chocolate Soda is made with real cocoa, pure cane sugar and spring water.

Real Soda Chocolate Covered Maple Bacon Soda
Real Soda's Chocolate Covered Maple Bacon Soda is, and I quote, "A Drinkie for the Foodie in you; this is a complex beverage that enters like a 'cold hot chocolate' seltzer with a slightly salty finish and the scent of bacon. After enjoying a bottle, if you belch, you'll think you ate chocolate-covered bacon!" Now doesn't that conjure a nice image?

And we've got a whole panoply (no, that's not the Peter Pan Monopoly) of creamy beverages from which to choose (e.g., butterscotch cream, clear cream, blue cream, vanilla cream, red cream, but alas, no whipped cream). So on Saturday, February 7, from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm, we'll offer up a selection of these creamy drinks for all (who register) to sample. Remember, it's always free and fun, but you must RSVP before it's too late.

We guarantee to cream you. Come suck some suds with us - register now!
Village Candy is an old-time, new-fangled retail shop specializing in a unique selection of retro and current bulk and novelty candy, artisan chocolates, glass-bottled pop and candy-themed gifts. Oh, and remember customer service? It's back!

We are here Tuesday thru Saturday 10 am to 5 pm, but on Wednesday we stay late until 8! We are closed Sunday and Monday.
