Candy Store Atlanta: 9 Great Store Locations We Crave

THE CHOCOLATERIE LUXURY CHOCOLATES

The Chocolaterie in Historic Downtown Duluth has been offering locals much more than “just chocolate” for the past decade. On the menu – artisan chocolates, such as handmade and hand-painted chocolate truffles (I’ve tried them; they’re delicious!), made from non-GMO and hormone-free milk and cream.

Over 50 different high-quality confections can be purchased by the pound, for the perfect souvenir, business gifts, or party favors. In addition to candy, they offer handmade ice cream. Flavors are changed up to four times a week and listed on the website. Dairy-free options available. Closed Mondays.

LOLLI AND POPS

Located inside two popular Atlanta shopping malls (North Point and Perimeter Mall) is “an encyclopedia of the world’s finest candies and confections”. Lolli and Pops, the “Purveyors of Sweetness”, is an absolute treat and family favorite. I have the frequent buyer card to prove it!

When you enter the store, you’ll immediately notice a glass display, filled with truffles and macarons. (Try the birthday cake — it’s delectable!) One entire wall is dedicated to both milk and dark chocolate candies to add to your bag or gummy bear-shaped to-go container. The back wall offers gummy candies, both sweet and sour, displayed next to a giant golden gummy bear (the perfect photo op).

Nostalgic for a candy from your childhood? Chances are good that they offer it. They’ve even got treats from around the world. And if all of this sugar is making you thirsty pick up a drink or specialty glass soda pop on your way to check out.

Can’t make it to the store? Visit the website for beautiful and creative boxed gifts, starting at $29 plus shipping, perfect for birthday and wedding gifts. Other items available for order online as well.

MAC LAB

Mac Lab has become a popular Atlanta hot spot since going viral with their Instagram-famous unicorn macaron. Faced with tweaking her macaron recipe to suit the Southern climate, Lan, baker and co-owner of MacLab, turned her kitchen into a lab when she began playing with her recipe to get just the right mix for her now-famous macarons. Once the recipe was refined she was able to turn to whipping up all kinds of fun flavors.

Check out their Instagram feed for mouthwatering photos that will have you jumping in the car and racing to get a box. Located in Duluth and open Wednesday-Sunday.

RIVER STREET SWEETS

Born in Savannah, River Street Sweets has a location in Atlanta at The Battery. River Street is known for their southern treats like pecan pralines, bear claws, candy apples and glazed pecans, but features a huge selection of delicious treats. Try a pecan pie, salt water taffy or their hand pulled peanut brittle. You’re sure to get your sweet tooth cured, at least for a little while.

Planning a company meeting or party? They’ve got cakes, pies, and gifts party ready.

IT’SUGAR

Located in Atlantic Station, IT’SUGAR is a novelty candy story loaded with color and sweets. From gummy bears to candy sushi and giant Twizzlers, there are a wide variety of candy to choose from. IT’SUGAR also offers gifts and unique treats. Open daily.

COLLIER CANDY COMPANY

If you’re shopping or dining at Ponce City Market, take a moment to stop into Collier Candy Co. for a sweet treat to take home.

Part old-timey candy shop, part drug store, Collier’s bills themselves as a purveyor of hard to find candies. Remember candy cigarettes? They’ve got ‘em and other nostalgic treats as well.

CACAO BUCKHEAD

“From bean to bar, evolved.” This is Cacao’s mantra. Craft chocolates created with the very best ingredients, showcased in an upscale “bar”, from chocolate covered caramels to seasonal treats, such as the gorgeous chocolate and caramel skull bon bons for Halloween.

XOCOLATL SMALL BATCH CHOCOLATE

Xocolatl Small Batch Chocolate is a “micro-factory” located in the Krog Street Market, making it a convenient spot to stop in for a bar or two after shopping or dining. The gorgeously wrapped craft chocolates feature such flavors as “Americana” (chocolate apple pie) or my favorite “Kissed Mermaids” (dark coconut milk chocolate with vanilla-infused sea salt). Yum.

ROCKET FIZZ

Candyholics, rejoice! There is a new mega candy store making its way into the metro area. Aside from how colorful the store is, what is most exciting is the element of discovery and delight in finding lost treasures.

Are you looking for that hard-to-find candy from your childhood? Rocket Fizz stocks loads of treats and surprises from yesteryear. Seeking gummy fruits from Japan or that chocolate bar you loved in England and haven’t found in the States? There’s a good chance you’ll find it among the almost overwhelming assortment of candy that packs the store.
