The first time I visited the Simply Sweet Shoppe in the Carmel Arts & Design District was about a year ago.Â At that time, one of the owners said "Every town needs a candy shop and that is what we want to give Carmel." Â I could not agree more! Â However, The Simply Sweet Shoppe has taken the idea of a typical small town candy store to a whole other level. Â I stopped in this morning and was immediately greeted by candy-filled glass pillars. Colorful jars of bubble gum, chocolates, jellybeans, gummy worms and lollipops rested on shelves. Â Scoopers rested next to each container, ready to fill up bags with sweet treats (and there were a LOT of containers). Â Specialty candy sat behind glass protectors. Â There were pops of color with the pink, blue, yellow chairs, pictures and decorations. Â Just above, but still connected to,Â the shop children were heard laughing and playing.Â Tables & chairs were set up outside so people could sit and thoroughly enjoy their indulgence. Â I also noticed a couple of other things. Â The first is that the shop owners are very involved in the community; blue & gold candies were proudly displayed (the colors of local Carmel High School), tv shirts and buttons from local concerts & events were hung on the walls, and art from the local Museum of Miniature Houses was set out. The other thing I observed was that every song was about sugar, sweets or candy (Lollipop, lollipop, oh lolli, lolli...). How creative is that? Â This shop is a must; you will NOT leave in a bad mood! By the way, as I type I am eating some kind of milk chocolate peanut treat that is so delicious. Â Why did I only buy 2?
