I am FINALLY getting a chance to share with all of you my pictures from the Sweets and Snacks expo I attended back in May! This expo happens once a year and is all about candy! It was basically like being in candy heaven (not even joking) with thousands of candy vendors from every candy company you can think of! The best part was tasting (and bringing home a whole suitcase full) all the brand new candies that haven’t even been released yet. Attending the expo made me realize how much happiness candy brings and why I love it so much! I have been working on something exciting I can’t wait to share more about in the coming months, but for now check out all the photos of the unique candies I snagged at the expo! I can’t wait to go next year!

CANDY BABEL

While I was home in Oregon last weekend, I had the chance to visit Candy Babel! The owner, Amani (pictured above), was so sweet and fun! What makes her store so unique is that she carries candy from around the world with a rotating selection. How delightful! What I loved most about her cute shop is that she doesn’t spend any money on marketing, but instead raises money for local schools. How cool is that? I not only scooped up the unique bulk candy, but also took home some Lil Miss Marshmallows (made locally in Portland) and yummy peach cotton candy! I will definitely be making another visit when I go back home next!
