Have you ever just wanted to be a kid in a candy store? At B. A. Sweetie Candy Company and Soda Shoppe you can experience the largest candy store in America. Just on the outskirts of Cleveland, Ohio is a 40,000-square foot warehouse chock full of every flavor and color candy you can imagine.
The Sweetie Candy Company has just about every brand of candy available with over 4,500 varieties. So, if you’re looking for something different or maybe an old fashion favorite you can get it all here. Have a large event coming up, no problem they can accommodate large volumes.
When you first walk in Sweeties you see the whimsical display of candy characters and piñatas hanging from the ceiling. You walk pass the soda aisle with over 200 different flavors in glass bottles.
I love wandering the aisles and seeing candy from years ago, it brings back great memories. But, they also carry brands I’m not familiar with, so it’s fun to try something new. The large bags of brightly colored M&M’s and bubble gum to an entire wall of Pez dispensers. Lollipops, candy bars, and chocolate galore.
I’ll admit I probably buy more than I should but, it’s so much fun it’s easy to get caught up in it all. I’ve never seen so many flavors of jelly beans ever! I love watching all the children as they walk around in sheer amazement. The looks on their faces are just too precious! Then they have to decide on what to get, no easy feat here.
The new Sweeties Soda Shoppe is now open with a fun farm style décor complete with tractor seat chairs, chicken coops hanging from the ceiling and swing seats that the kids and grandparents enjoy.
The menu includes sundaes, malts, shakes, parfaits, smoothies, and cones. Homemade syrups, ice creams, hot fudge and whip cream are all made with fresh local ingredients. They also have a self-serve frozen yogurt and custard with over 36 different toppings of your choosing.
We tried a triple chocolate parfait and can I tell you this was outstanding! They can pretty much make whatever combination of ice cream dish you want.
So, after you have finished touring all things Cleveland or if you’re just passing through Ohio, go off the beaten path a little and explore the country’s largest candy store. It truly is a candy wonderland!
TIP: During the summer months, Sweeties Golfland, their mini golf course is open next door making this a fantastic family outing stop.
