Whether you’re looking for something old, something new something rare or something blue, they have it! Joie and her sister Kate purchased this business two years ago when they were looking for a new adventure. Both Ballston Spa natives and candy lovers, The Village Sweet Shoppe serves as a perfect business for these two. The adorable pink candy Shoppe is a throwback to the good ol’ days where you can “scoop you own” (similar to penny candies many years ago). They offer a wide variety of everyday favorites along with some rarities like Boston Baked Beans and chewy Sprees. They even had a 24 inch gummy rattlesnake I decided to scoop into my bag which I thought was pretty cool as did the 5 year old boys who happen to be in there (guess I have juvenile candy tastes :) ). The Shoppe also carries nostalgic candies like Abba Dabba bars, wax bottles, candy cigarettes, Sky Bars and more! If you have a special request, just ask them! They are more then happy to find it for you because they want all of their customers to feel like a kid in a candy store. Speaking of kids, the sweet Shoppe also hosts private parties, so if you are in the mood to turn your kid into the Tasmanian devil post sugar consumption, book a party with them. Your kids will LOVE it and don’t worry, the sugar high will eventually wear off.
