We provide an every other weekend shift rotation to ensure our staff can enjoy their time off and we carry extended hours in the holiday season.

Our retail environment is unique in that we do something different everyday. We get to work with public, but we also work behind the scenes to create custom orders, assist with candy making, and fastidiously maintain our merchandise displays along with the store itself.

If you are dedicated to providing a great customer experience, appreciate a tidy and organized work space, love to be busy, enjoy working with people in a team environment, and have a strong eye for detail, we would like to talk with you.

  • Wow. Try the mint smoothies. You'll be amazed at how good these things are. I dare you to stop at one! They have hundreds of other great candies of all kinds. Worth a drive to Stratford just to visit an amazing small scale local landmark.

  • I live in Stratford and I have family who come to visit from the States and that's the first place they want to go when they come. I can honestly say that they are the best chocolates I've ever had. It's worth the trip!

  • Simply put, the best candy store I’ve ever been to. The mint smoothies are, in my opinion, practically perfect candy. Highly recommended.
