Do you have a sweet tooth? Step inside a world of sweets, candies and chocolates, not only from all over the world, space and time, but from every corner of your imagination.

IMG_2441Sweet! Hollywood is a candy store of epic proportions. This space is 30,000 square feet of decadence and perfect for both kids and adults. From the moment you step in, you are amazed by the grandeur and selection of the sweets here. Anything and everything you can think of is here, including a giant gumball machine powered by a real, flaming bright red Ferrari.

The “Sticky” boutique has the candy makers making fresh candy right in front of you. You can see the entire process of folding, stretching and kneading right before your eyes. They handcraft beautiful and colorful hard candies that can be customized with your name, logo or message. They even let you taste pieces of fresh hard candy as they make it.

Another place to customize your candy other than the “Sticky” boutique is at their “Chocolate Lab.” All you have to do is choose from the variety of toppings (cereals, other candies, nuts, etc.) you want on the type of chocolate bar (dark, white, milk) you want and a “chocolate lab” technician will make it right in front of you. So if you can’t find the chocolate you want in the store, make it yourself!

IMG_2423The most famous boutique is of course the “WONKA” boutique. Ever heard of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory? Did you ever wish you won the Golden Ticket? Inside this boutique you can step inside the mind of this world-famous chocolatier. Metallic London-style phone booths and dark purple velvet curtains gives this boutique an air of mystery and wonder. WONKA’s amazing new chocolates feature Willy Wonka’s travels around the globe and through the galaxies. His truffle collections are not only handcrafted chocolate made with the most fascinating, high-quality ingredients he could find, but are also uniquely flavored and gorgeously decorated.

IMG_2444Sweet! Hollywood contains 12 unique candy boutiques that range from an explosion of red hearts in the “Forever Valentines” boutique to the weird and gross in the “Yucky” boutique that has candy body parts and toilet bowls. If there is a chocolate or candy that you crave but can never find it because you had it in another country, try searching for it their boutique that stocks up on unique candies from all over the world. Each boutique is so different and interesting that you can get lost in this store for hours.
