The Candy Store at Target {Everywhere}

Target is getting a whole lot sweeter on May 6th! The Candy Store, based in San Francisco, has teamed up with the designers from Target to launch a fantastic, exclusive, 6-week long collection of sweetness nationwide. The unique line of candy couture is sizzling, both in looks and taste. This is part of Target’s new boutique lines to keep up with trendy, low-price competition. Bring on the sugar.

Though there is a plethora of treats to choose from at Target’s new Candy Store, I tried to limit this to my favorites:

Lively Lollipops –  I don’t know how many licks it would take to get to the center of this large lollipop, but I’m guessing somewhere in the thousands.  I received the blueberry lollipop with Necco wafers and the orange lollipop with fancy swirl. These were too cute to even eat. Rather than lick my way to a tummy ache, I thought they would make adorable centerpieces for a party. The designs are brilliant, colorful and entertaining.

Malted Milk Balls, Rainbow Candy, Filled Gummy Strawberries – Gummies, chocolate and gooey goodness, really, what can I say but, bring it on! I have a very special place in my heart for gummies and loved the strawberries with the added bonus. The malted milk balls were better than Whoppers and colorful enough to use as a cute baby shower giveaway or some other pastel-themed event. The rainbow candy, I had never tasted anything like it. The name alone is half the allure. Rainbow, why, yes please.

Like what you see?  Show them some sugar…
