I’ve heard it referred to as the Tiffany of candy stores, and I would be willing to agree. When you first walk into sugarfina on South Santa Monica in Beverly Hills, your eyes are immediately drawn to the beautiful Tiffany-like blue boxes and candy-filled décor all around the bright and airy shop. Opened in November 2013, the owners have brought together beautiful and unique candies from around the world. In a really great backstory, it was watching Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory on one of their earliest dates, that set them in motion to create an innovative candy experience for adults.
I think Beverly Hills is a great location for their first shop because both exude luxury. Taking the words sugar + fina, you get candy of top-quality to make your life sweeter. The packaging is beautiful and so are the candies. Everything from chocolates to gummies to caramels and licorice, there’s something for every taste on the shelves at sugarfina. I particularly like their Champagne Bears (gummy of course) and their Martini Olive Almonds. I love that you can purchase little tasting packets for a few dollars each, so you can sample a variety of sweets before making your big decision. Plus, there’s a Candy Concierge on site to help with your selections! So if you’re looking for a lovely new place to get sweets for your Valentine this year, make a visit to sugarfina in Beverly Hills!
