Where to Satisfy Your Candy Cravings in Toronto

The season is upon us -- candy season. Almost like a tidal wave that's washed over every Walmart, every Dollarama, every supermarket, it's hard not to see candy no matter where you look.

But you've evolved over the years. You don't have to wait for Halloween to steal whatever good stuff your kids got. You're older, more mature. You can seek out the candy you want, reminisce about the candy you had as a kid, maybe think about the sweets you could only get back home.

What if I told you that there's a list of spots in Toronto you can go to for that candy nostalgia? If you could get your hands on international chocolate, would you be able to contain yourself? Well, we are here to provide the definitive list of the top spots in Toronto to satisfy that sweet tooth.

From bulk candies to international goodies to handmade art pieces, this list will show you where to go for candy bliss.

Squish Candy

Squish Candy

The only offering on this list without a physical location, you can pick up Squish Candy across many stores in the city. What makes them special is they're a Canadian female-run company based out of Montreal offering hand-crafted gummies made with gelatin alternatives. Everything is made with natural ingredients, and with over 50+ flavours, you're sure to find something you'll love.

655 Yonge St

BulkMine Candy Store

BulkMine Candy Store

Making the claim that they're "Toronto's favourite candy story since 1998," BulkMine Candy Store takes bulk candy to a different level. Stop in to get your bulk candies, bulk chocolates, retro candies and chocolates, and to see one of the best collections of imported British confectionery and groceries in the city. People rave about this place for their selection of toffee, biscuits, twists and everything else from across the pond.

399 Roncesvalles Ave

Sweet Thrills

Sweet Thrills

An institution that has been a fixture of the Roncesvalles neighbourhood since 1998, Sweet Thrills has long been regarded as the best candy store in Toronto. Packed full with a very impressive selection of imported candies, sweets, bulk foods and a strong section of imported British sweets, you'll be hard-pressed to find something you don't want. They also sell board games and other novelty items, so you can have fun no matter what you're looking for.

3360 Yonge St

Papabubble Toronto

Papabubble Toronto

Founded in Barcelona and with multiple locations across Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and North America, Papabubble prides itself on creating authentic handmade hard candy using traditional methods. All candy is made right there in the shop, and you can stop by and watch the entire process from beginning to end. They even make custom candies!

450 Danforth Ave

Suckers Candy Co

Suckers Candy Co

Get ready for a real nostalgia trip at Suckers Candy Co. The second you pass through those sweet doors, you're welcomed by candy from all time periods. With over 4000+ square feet of space to play with, you can find all types of novelty, retro and contemporary candy that will bring you back to simpler times when all that mattered was how big a haul you got on Halloween.

Bulk Barn

Bulk Barn

No candy list is complete without mentioning the bulk candy giant that is Bulk Barn. Not reserved solely for candy and offering all kinds of bulk items, Bulk Barn is still the most likely place to find whatever chocolate or candy you're looking for. You think of it; they probably have it. You can even fill up your own containers, skipping the plastic bag step entirely. Pro tip: pre weigh your containers!

563 Yonge St

Sugar Mountain Confectionary

Sugar Mountain Confectionary

Once a staple in the Toronto candy scene, Sugar Mountain has now been reduced to their lone GTA location up in Vaughn. Fully stocked with a huge amount of bulk candy options, check out their unique selection of British imports, sweet Mexican candy and Canadian favourites. You can even pick up some of their merchandise and reminisce about the past Sugar Mountain locations and their iconic signage.

849 College St

The Candy Bar

The Candy Bar

You might not be able to find a cuter candy shop in Toronto. The Candy Bar, located on College and close to Ossington, has a wide selection of bulk candy, fine chocolates, international treats and healthier options if you're looking for that. Keep an eye out for Paola, the shop owner, who knows her stuff and will help satisfy whatever sweet craving you have.
