Easter is early this year (April 8th) and, as usual, we‚Äôre your one-stop shop for the cutest and most delicious treats! Many of your favorites are back (caramel robins‚Äô eggs, real Cadbury creme eggs and Seagull eggs) as well as new items (dark chocolate bunnies, gianduja farm animals and chocolate chicks) which are all sure to please! I love this time of year, and not just because I was born in the spring, but because, as one of my customers says, ‚ÄúEvery piece of candy is happy.‚ÄĚ
If you‚Äôre planning a party or Easter hunt at your home, need the coolest Easter basket imaginable, or just love the candy of the season, we‚Äôve got everything you could possibly need or want! Please order your custom Easter baskets (well, boxes) as soon as possible, as this is one the busiest times of the year for us and we want you to have the best selection possible to choose from.
Also, I want to invite you all to check out our new website, www.thecandystoresf.com which I can take no credit for whatsoever. Special thanks to our graphic designer, David, and web guy, Brian, who did a fantastic job!
I hope to see you all soon!

Whether you‚Äôre ready for the holidays or not, they‚Äôre coming! And for a lucky few of you out there, Christmas just might come early this year. Read on if you‚Äôre intrigued‚Ä¶
Ok‚Ä¶ think about how much fun would it be to have a beautiful candy bar or (even better) our fully-stocked candy cart serving up treats at your company‚Äôs holiday party. Can you visualize it? Good. Now, think about how fantastic it would be to receive an enormous gift certificate to our store for being the person who makes that happen! That‚Äôs right, you can have your candy and eat it too.
Here‚Äôs how it works… If we book an event with your company based on your referral, you will get a gift certificate for 10% of the total value of the event as soon as that event is booked and we receive a deposit. Just do the math: if your company books a candy cart event for $3,000, you, my friend, will have a $300 gift certificate from our store in your pocket! Just think what you could do with all that candy. Seriously, think about it. Like, now.
Give us a call or come by the store if you‚Äôd like to get things started. Set up a candy tasting for the decision makers at your company ‚Äď what‚Äôs the worst that could happen? Even better, become a decision maker at your company so that you can reap the sweet rewards of your absolute power!

The Swedes know candy: they consume more per capita than other country in Europe. We‚Äôre excited to have six new Swedish candies at the store, which are very delicious and extremely hard to come by in this country. They are‚Ä¶
Raspberry Hallonshots. Raspberry flavored gummi‚Äôs, hard in texture and extremely sour.
Sour Skulls. Skull-shaped gummi‚Äôs, in pineapple, raspberry and green apple and very, very sour. We‚Äôre constantly asked what the most sour candy in the store is and the answer now is‚Ä¶these!
Swedish Monkeys. Tiny little red monkeys, flavored similarly to Swedish fish, but with a much more firm texture.
Salmiak Carpets. Perfectly chewy, medium salty and fun to pull apart.
Vanilla Sockerbitar. Similar to a vanilla marshmallow, but with a much chewier texture. I‚Äôm SO into these!
Strawberry Sockerbitar. Amazing strawberry flavor, fantastic chew, and phenomenally delicious! LOVE these!
If the candy sounds good, it‚Äôs because it is! Come by and try some and let us know what you think. In the meantime, here are a few photos‚Ä¶

The Red Tie Gala is a fabulous event that takes place every two years at Neiman Marcus in San Francisco. Its efforts support St. Anne‚Äôs Home, run by the Little Sisters of the Poor, who have been serving the aged poor of San Francisco since 1901.
Yvonne Sangiacomo, one of our most beloved customers, is the founder of ‚ÄėRed Tie‚Äô and it was our pleasure to support her and her wonderful charity. Two years ago, Brian and I donated our fully-loaded candy cart to the event, and this year we donated 300 containers filled with Yvonne‚Äôs favorite item in our store: French Guyeaux truffles.
We had a great time, here are some pics:
