Welcome to our Small Business Corner where we chat about some of Northern Michigan's greatest little "slices of Heaven." That's exactly what you'll find in this week's feature, actually; almost literal slices of Heaven, otherwise known as Candy World's homemade fudge!
If you've lived in Northern Michigan for very long you've probably heard about the award-winning 45th Parallel Cafe and Candy World, located in Suttons Bay, Michigan.
As soon as you step foot in the door you will enter a wonderful little world of candy, fudge, and days gone by. The likes of Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby and Motown Groups drift into the shop, carrying you away to yester-year. The scent of fudge and fine chocolates waft through the air and leave your mouth watering.
While the fudge and chocolates are anything but ordinary (i.e. the apples covered in a mountain of fudge and caramel!), they're not the only treats you'll want to check out! Candy World is known for their nostalgic candies, such as Charleston Chews and Clark Bars. They also have the most excellent gourmet popcorn, covered in dark and white chocolate, perfectly marrying 'sweet and salty'. You'll find a wall of Jelly Beans, many varieties of imported chocolate bars, and even sugar-free candies!
Candy World is literally steps away from the ever-excellent 45th Parallel Cafe. Stop in for breakfast or lunch in the cafe and then pop right into the doorway of the candy store! You can visit in person at 104 W Broadway in Suttons Bay.
While the store is always welcoming and an excellent way to spend your time in the 'pinky', never fear if you are an out-of-towner! Visit www.45thfudge.com or call 231-271-2255 and you can have fudge and other incredible treats shipped right to your home. Candy World even offers corporate gifts!
Whether you shop online or in person, the second you take that first taste of your decadent, gourmet goody, you'll see why we think 45th Parallel's Candy World is a little slice of Heaven.
