Judging Candy Stores – Powell’s Sweet Shoppe in Lafayette

Located at 3591 Mount Diablo Blvd in downtown Lafayette, Powell’s Sweet Shoppe is a really fun candy store that everyone can enjoy, thanks to the large selection of candy, including nostalgic brands like Necco Wafers, Fun Dips, and Whoppers. They also have a huge selection of bulk candy, including gelato, with Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory playing on a TV towards the back. Possibly dentists are the only people who may not appreciate a store like this.

When I go I always get a sea salt caramel and try to resist whatever my kids manage to get home. What’s the best candy to get at Powell’s?

    Chicko Sticks and Fun Dips take me back. Don’t forget to get Gelato. They have a really good selection, too.
