What’s your idea of heaven on earth? If you said “indulging in a candy spree”, then I agree wholeheartedly! The Bossier Chamber of Commerce welcomed a new businees into the Bossier community today with a ribbon cutting to celebrate. Candy Spree is your Neighborhood Candy Store and candy specialty center. As their wall states, a candy spree is an unrestrained indulgence in a rich confection that is made of sugar. Mayor Walker helped celebrate the ribbon cutting and said he felt like a kid in a candy store . . . so did I!
Kari and Caleb Howe were looking for a business opportunity. They realized that Bossier City lacked a true neighborhood candy store. They set out on their adventure and have created a cheerful and sweet family business. Candy Spree is more than just a candy store. They specialize in candy by the bulk, goody bags for birthday or school, candy buffets for any special occasion and candy pots. Kids will love the Pucker Powder machine. This contraption has a large variety of flavored sugar powder that allows a kid (any age allowed) to create custom pixi-sticks. There are four sizes of tubes available, from the “mom-approved” small to the “send your kids to grandma” supersize. In addition to the fixed machine in the store, Candy Spree has a mini pucker powder machine to rent for birthday parties or any occasion. Such an excellent and fun idea!
Candy Spree has a selection for even the most persnickety candy snobs. Everything from gummy bears to chocolate covered pecans and flavored jelly beans. They also have a section of sugar-free candy selections. I was interested in a particular “Gran Marnier Pecans”. This is a great place to stop by and pick up a last minute gift for that special someone. The candy goody bags also make yummy corporate gifts. I am definitely thinking about having a party, just so that I can have Candy Spree set up a candy buffet. What better reason for a party? I WANT CANDY!!
Candy Spree is located at 20191 Stockwell Road, Suite 6, Bossier City, LA. (318) 658-9630. Stop by and tell them you read my blog.
See ya around Bossier,
