Henry’s Candy Company is the sweetest addition to High Street in Hamilton. If sugar’s involved, I’m there! I stopped in for a sneak peek. Here are the top 5 things to know before you go.
1. BEARS… A RAINBOW OF GUMMY ONES
Pink grapefruit, watermelon, orange creamsicle, strawberry banana, chocolate covered cinnamon. The list goes on! Gooey, sugary goodness in the form of 20 gummy bear varieties. Don’t worry you don’t have to choose just one, the store can mix an assortment of your favorites.
2. TASTE TESTS HIGHLY ENCOURAGE
See something you like? Try it out. Be sure to ask the friendly staff for their top recommendations. I tried the espresso chocolate beans. AMAZING!
3. SENTIMENTAL SWEETS
Aside from traditional gummies and chocolates, Henry’s is full of obscure, but no less tasty sweet confections. Some you might remember from childhood. More unique options are wax lips, squirrel nut zippers, and bottle caps.
4. SUGAR BY THE POUND
Ranging from $2.99 to $18 per pound, candies are purchased by weight. No need to buy a full pound, mix and match to your heart’s content.
5. WHAT’S NEXT: SPECIALTY SODAS
Henry’s will soon be selling specialty bottles of craft soda in a wide assortment of flavors. It’s a new spin on a classic!
Be sure to stop in and taste a few. You just might find a new go-to candy. Visit Henry's Candy Shop at 243 High St. in Hamilton.
