A Sweet Arrival...Blueberry Tart Froyo at the Sweet Shop

We don't have the winter blues at the Sweet Shop but we do have a new flavor -nonfat Blueberry Acai Tart! Blueberries are full of antioxidants and are bursting with flavor. Try a Blueberry & Original Tart Swirl topped with some almonds or better yet just blueberries! Chase those winter blues away and cozy up at the Sweet Shop for some sweetness.
We have been busy at the shop looking for some great new products for the new year approaching, stay tuned for more announcements on some of our latest additions that we cant wait to share with you next year.
Wishing you a very safe and wonderful New Year from the Sweet Shop!

Sweet Holiday Celebrations at the Sweet Shop

On Saturday, December 19th, Santa and his helper will be making a very special visit to the Sweet Shop. We are very excited to have Santa take time from his busy holiday schedule to visit us. Santa will arrive at 2:00pm and be available to take pictures with children and ready to enjoy some cookies and milk with you – bring your cameras for that perfect holiday photo moment!

After Santa heads back to his toy workshop, we will have a Cello Musical Performance at 3:30pm by Lana Gruen and one of her Students performing a special Holiday Music Cello Duet. We welcome Lana back again to the Sweet Shop and can’t wait to hear another beautiful performance!

Just when you thought our celebrations were over….we decided to continue the festivities on Sunday, December 20th at 1:00pm with a Classical & Holiday Tunes Trumpet Duet, performed by Mark Cuson & Joel Infeld. Mark and Joel are both long time residents of Los Altos and are Juniors at Los Altos High School (LAHS). They have been playing the trumpet for seven years, four of which with private instruction. Both Mark and Joel are trying to raise money for college and wish to do so in a way that advances their musicianship and gives back to our community. We can’t wait for our first trumpet performance at the Sweet Shop.
The Sweetest Holidays are at the Sweet Shop
and we can't wait to celebrate with you!

Tis the Season at the Sweet Shop

The Holidays have arrived at the Sweet Shop! Our decorations and twinkling lights are up and we are ready to celebrate with you! Forget the busy shopping malls, the icy cold days (snow on the hills) and come warm up at the Sweet Shop with hot apple cider, hot chocolates, hot soup or just some warmth. Check out our new selection of yummy holiday gifts ...something special for everyone.

Just to name a few of our new favorites...the best ever Peppermint Bark, Gingerbread Boys dipped in chocolate, S'mores Cookies, English Toffee, Buttered Toffee Corn. We also have a new cake from our bakery - Red Velvet Cake with a Cream Cheese Frosting - super yummy and moist! Everything is so tempting, our team is working hard to resist all of the treats.

Brownies? Even better, our latest brownie pops - brownies on a stick with the perfect combination of gooey brownie inside and a crisp chocolate exterior…we have snowman brownie pops and chocolate w/sparkles like the ones in the picture. These wont last long and are so cute - we like to call it our new "mini cupcake"!

Our caramel apples are back and we have two new flavors for the holidays! This beautiful one is double dipped in caramel and rolled in Almonds, Pecans, Mini Dark Chocolate Chips & Cranberries. It is then half dipped in Guittard White Chocolate and finished off with a dark chocolate drizzle. Also, new is our Cheesecake Apple Apple double dipped in caramel, half dipped in white chocolate and rolled in graham cracker crumbs. Cheesecake anyone?
We look forward to seeing you for some holiday sweetness!
