Candy Shop for Both Kids and Adults Opens in Park Slope
PARK SLOPE — Sugar fiends young and old can get their fix at a new candy store in Park Slope.
Bit O' Sweet, at 315 Fourth Ave. and Third Street, carries treats to satisfy both kids and adults, owner Annette Bruno said.
"I thought, 'Every candy shop I go to caters more toward kids — how about a place where parents can get little treats?'" Bruno said.
"I want kids to be happy, and I want parents to have that feeling of nostalgia, but also feel that they're discovering new products that they haven’t seen."
In addition to classic kids' treats like gummy candies, Bit O' Sweet stocks treats for more refined palates, such as marshmallows that taste like Guinness, dried fruit, chai-flavored caramels and Askinosie chocolate bars made with bitter-tasting dark chocolate.
Bit O' Sweet also carries cookies, baking supplies, sauces, syrups and specialty items such as edible Scrabble tiles. The store stocks some vegan candies and locally produced sweets.
Bruno said the store will sell kids' party favor bags and also offer catering services.
