Why do these candy stores keep popping up all over the place?! Don’t they know that sweet shops are my weakness?! Last week the new International Market Place opened up in Waikiki. For those of you who have been to Waikiki in the past you may remember the market place… well it’s nothing like it was before. But we’ll just save that for another post. Let’s just say that it’s not the same “bargain with the vendor” shopping like it used to be. Now it’s expensive shops everywhere! Among those expensive stores, that I probably won’t ever walk into, is this cutest candy shop called Sugarfina. I saw one in San Francisco but never went in.
It’s so pretty and inviting that I couldn’t help myself and had to check it out. It is pretty pricey, but your treats come in the cutest packaging and everything looks so beautiful. There’s such a wide variety of “boutique” style candies, I had to pick up a couple of things for the kids (and myself of course). The saleswoman told me that what was unique about their shop is that they get their candy imported from all over the world. I also love that this candy store seems to cater to grown-ups with their Champagne Gummy Bear, Peach Bellini Gummies, Pale Ale Pint Gummies and their Maple Bourbon Caramels just to name a few.

They also customize their labels for special events like weddings, showers and birthdays. So if you got the cash to spend this may be something perfect for your next party.
