I’ll take you to the candy shop, let you lick the lollipop, keep going ’til you hit the spot. From gum drops to jawbreakers, candy is a that little extra to make your day a whole lot sweeter. It’s nostalgic, infused with carefree childhood memories, and let’s not forget the bonus sugar high. Here are the top spots to get your sweet on.
Derived from the concept of associating candy with people's personality profile, Candyality became a passion to offer carefully selective, highly indulgent, quirky, nostalgic, exclusive and unique sweets and products that have a lasting and universal appeal.
