Profile

Sugar Shop in Cobble Hill embodies the sentiment of a penny-candy store with a contemporary Wonkaland design, complete with gumball-filled plastic columns and a side room for candy-themed parties. As a nod to sweet shops of yore, the back wall is lined with a “nostalgic candy bar” full of old-school treats like Charleston Chews, saltwater taffy, Mary Janes, and Mallo Cups. In all, the shop carries more than 150 varieties of candy, arranged in sections like a “chocolate wall,” covered with containers of treats such as peanut-pretzel poppers and toffee pistachios covered in chocolate. There’s also a lollipop tree, a table for Jelly Bellys, and another dedicated to sweets from Brooklyn, including Mast Brothers Chocolate and Fine & Raw bars. Owner Sara Houchins grew up making pull candy with her grandmother and frequenting a sweet shop where her grandfather kept a store account, and she left a job in fashion to open Sugar Shop. “I just didn’t love clothing the way I love candy,” she tells us.
