The turkeys have arrived at the Sweet Shop - gobble gobble indeed! We have 2 adorable and festive turkeys for you that will make any Thanksgiving table a little bit more special. First, we have the traditional chocolate turkey - who doesn't remember having at least one of these on their Thanksgiving table at some point? Second, we have something new that you can add to your table to make it a new tradition - a "turkey climber". How cute is this? It's a caramel apple candy stick with a handmade turkey. This would be so cute sitting at everyone's place setting at the Thanksgiving table.
