We've got some new candy at the Sweet Shop! Come in and see what's new, already has been discovered and has proven to be very popular. We have...
Chocolate candy rocks
The rocks and the blox sold out within a day of me putting them out, so I had to reorder them quickly. The blox are here, and our rocks should be in the store tomorrow...so come check out our new additions. And who doesn't want to be wearing the latest fashion trend - a candy necklace (you can look good and eat your jewelry - how fab is that?!!).

Have you seen these cute bags sitting around on one of the ledges lately and wondered what they were for? Well...today, our Barista (Sam) decided to use her wonderful sign making skills to tell our customers exactly what was in these bags and what they could be used for. They are used coffee grinds and your garden LOVES them. Sprinkle them around your flowers and they will make them so very happy.
Here at the Sweet Shop we care very much about the environment and many of you are probably not aware that almost EVERY cup, bowl, utensil, lid and bag in our shop is compostable. That's right...even the candy bags!! Our candy bags are cellulose bags. Cellulose is the primary component of the cell walls of plants - completely natural and nontoxic, can be composted, is 100% biodegradable -- and can also be recycled with other paper products. Biodegrades in 30 to 90 days in soil. The yogurt cups are sugarcane, our utensils are potatoes. So much here at the Sweet Shop is biodegradable it's amazing!
The Sweet Shop is much more than just a "community sweet store with heart" - we care not only for our customers of today - but for our customers of tomorrow. And we care very much about the planet that we are all sharing.

We love dogs here at the Sweet Shop and as of today - we are now selling homemade dog bones from "Auntie Julie's Canine Cookies"! That's right, bring in Fido (or Rover, or Spot) for a homemade, healthy dog bone here at the Sweet Shop. And to make sure that they tasted good, our own Manager and one of our Barista's taste tested them and sure enough - they are yummy enough for people to eat! They are chock full of healthy ingredients, so you'll feel good about your four-legged best friend eating them as he/she accompanies you to the Sweet Shop.
Here are a couple pictures of our first "Dog Customer" and his owner. This is Henry and his cute owner is 5 year old Asha. As you can see in the first picture, Henry looks at his bone - then quickly decides to eat it. Thanks Asha for bringing Henry to the Shop and letting him be our first dog customer. We hope to see you both back here soon.

Have you tried our baked goods yet? If not - you are in for a treat...a real treat! Our baked goods come from some of the best bakeries in the Bay Area (yes, we are biased). However, the word is slowly getting out there and our customers are coming back for more after they have tried them for the first time - or a new customer has come in and said "I heard you have Sibby's Cupcakes in here!!".
We have baked goods from "Icing on the Cake" in Los Gatos. If you have never treated yourself to one of their delectable goodies, you just have to come in and try one of the items that we are carrying from their bakery. While they have some of the best cakes, cupcakes and cookies that we have ever tried, we are only able to carry a few of their top sellers. Currently we are carrying some of their popular loaf cakes, s'mores (a huge hit - I swear eating one of these will take you back to your childhood sitting by a campfire), fancy cookies and a few of their other treats.
Sibby's Cupcakes - It is true! We have them folks. Word is slowly leaking out that we have them and the customers that had never tried them before are now repeat customers (I'm not making this fact up). Tell me now - how cute are the designs on these cupcakes too? And the chocolate one that you see in the picture above with the swirly design, they have a creme filling inside that will make you want a huge glass of milk right beside you. You just have to try a Sibby's Cupcake if you've never tried one - I swear they are the best, freshest tasting cupcakes ever! (and their design team can put anything on top of a cupcake - they are amazing).
Hope to see you at the Sweet Shop soon trying one of our wonderful baked goods.

Yes - we are one of the few Northern California retail locations that are privileged to carry Dippin' Dots. They are called the "ice cream of the future" and judging by the fact that we sell out of them almost every week, our customers like this futuristic ice cream. We have several of their most popular flavors including: Banana Split, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Cookies n Cream with Oreo. We are going to be trying their Cotton Candy and Rainbow Ice flavors later this week...so stop in to let us know if you like these flavors too!

This was "Opening Day" at the Sweet Shop on August 26, 2009!! A day that we will never forget. The day that the community came out in full force and really welcomed the Sweet Shop. And we are still in our "soft opening" mode. What is a "soft opening"? It means that right now we are open shorter hours and still learning what inventory we will have in stock. We will let you know when our Grand Opening will be (probably in a few weeks)..so stay tuned. Right now, we are open Monday through Saturday from 8:30am - 5:30 pm. We have wonderful coffee, tea, baked goods, pastries, cupcakes, frozen yogurt, smoothies, Dippin' Dots, candy, ice cream and all kinds of treats waiting for you at the Sweet Shop. Please stop by and see us as we would love to meet you!
