8 Twin Cities Chocolate and Candy Shops To Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth

This is an article about 9 mouthwatering treat shops and chocolate shops that you should go to if you or your kids need a candy fix (don’t let your kids catch you while you’re looking at this, or you might be deciding sooner than you would have wanted to!). These are especially good if you want to get a Valentine’s Day present for somebody special, or just a present in general! So, without further ado, I present these Twin Cities candy stores and treat shops to you!

7 Twin Cities Treat Shops & Chocolate Shops To Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth

Andy’s 8 favorite Twin Cities Candy Stores

1. Minnesota’s Largest Candy Store | Jordan

Open: Daily, June-November, 9am-6pm

My personal favorite, and settled in Jordan, MN, Minnesota’s Largest Candy Store has the world’s largest soda selection, including more than 150 kinds of root beer, tons and tons of candy, and fresh baked apple pies. There is a huge gumball machine, and these gumballs are filled with Nerds! If you bacon lovers are looking for something, then go here, because there is a section entirely devoted to bacon stuff (I thought I saw even a bacon pie…). Prices range from a quarter up, but there are a few pricey items. Take note, this candy store only accepts cash, so come prepared.

2. Regina’s Fine Candies | St Paul

Open: Mon-Fri: 9am-6pm, Sat: 10am-5pm, Sun: closed

This longtime candy store features specialties like holiday packages, wedding and business treats. Regina’s also crafts homemade goodies that have gotten many customers into the shop – brittles like peanut and coconut, and chocolate figurines and caramels. Near Halloween, the shop offers tours for families and, having gone myself, I can assure you they are delicious fun.

3. CandyLand | Minneapolis, St Paul & Stillwater

Open: Mon-Sat: 8:30am-10pm, Sun: 10am-9pm

A great place to go if you haven’t met King Kandy yet in the board game! This store is famous for its popcorn, like caramel corn and cheese popcorn and their yummy Chicago Mix. Popcorn tins, ranging from a half-gallon to 6-and-a-half gallon sizes, are great for gifts. CandyLand also carries salt water taffy, jawbreakers, licorice, nut tins and t-shirts!

4. Legacy Chocolates | St Paul

Open: Mon-Fri: 6:30 am-4:30 pm, Sat: 8 am-12pm, Sun: closed

Located in the historic Pioneer Endicott building in downtown St Paul, Legacy Chocolates has many things to offer. Come to this cozy cafe to try chocolate done a dozen ways, ice cream, or perhaps a sip of some delicious coffee. This café also includes a bakery, with muffins and small cakes all made from scratch. You can also send gifts to friends or family. Although this isn’t a candy store, it should be on your radar.

5. Candy Jar | Minneapolis

Open: Mon-Fri: 9:30am-5pm, Sat: 9:30am-6pm, Sun: closed

This store carries wonderful chocolates, as well as seasonal candies and gifts. They also have a counter where you can choose whatever you want, and then they box it up for you. My mom says the jars of classic hard candies remind her of when she was a kid and she used to bring change to the candy store to fill a paper bag. This store in particular has very friendly and helpful staff, probably because it is small and family-run.

6. Tremblay’s Sweet Shop | Stillwater

Open: Sun-Thurs: 10am-8pm, Fri-Sat: 10am-9pm

This store is one I would like to go to, featuring truffles, caramels, jelly beans, and my favorite, salt water taffy! Established in 1963, this store features the usual candy, such as chocolate and licorice, but also some other candy, such as fudge balls, brittle, and almond bark. And also, for the kids who don’t tolerate sugar, this shop features sugar-free chocolates and candies.

7. Blue Sun Soda and Sweets Shop | Spring Lake Park

Open: Mon-Sat: 10am-8pm, Sun: 10am-6pm
With an unmatched selection of sodas (everything from root beer to bacon-flavored soda!), tons of candy and free popcorn all the time, this is an awesome spot for kids! I could personally spend quite a bit of time at the free pinball machines before dropping a soda into the free chilling machine – cools your soda 25 times faster than a fridge!

8. Truffles & Tortes | Anoka

Open: Mon 9am-4pm; Tues-Sat 9am-7pm
Come for the dessert and leave with a couple of extra desserts! YUM!  I cannot say enough about this quaint little shop.

    1. Thank you, Emma. I’m glad you found this article useful. However, Andy only reviewed shops with a physical location to visit in the Twin Cities. Ontario is a bit too far for the average child to convince his parents to drive him.
