Four new spots in the city to get your sugar fix

Four new spots in the city to get your sugar fix

When the leftover Halloween candy runs out (and your kid has wisely hidden their stash), these barons of bon bons will ply you with sugar. Some of the sweet stuff is all-natural, some of it’s made on-site and some of it’s just plain fun. The next time your inner child has a craving, hit up one of these four new spots.

At Toronto’s first Papabubble, a Barcelona-based company, hard candy is the thing. Staff at this uptown shop make all of the detailed and adorably designed twee treats on-site, by hand. 3360 Yonge St., 416-483-3360,, @papabubble_toronto

Sullivan & Bleeker
While Toronto’s own Sullivan & Bleeker might be better known for its cupcakes and things-in-jars, they’re in the gummy-candy business, too. 877 Alness St., #17, North York, 416-961-3553,, @SullivanBleeker

Ikea Canada
Not only do the Swedes nail functional, minimalist furniture design, but their traditions are pretty great, too. “Lördagsgodis” (“Saturday Candy”) is the weekly event when children get to load up at the candy shop. Ikea’s bulk sweets section can now be found in Canadian locations, so next time you’re there picking up a couple of fyrfaldigs, or maybe one of these, grab a bagful of on-trend social media gummies to go.
