When it comes to sponge candy, this place is the real deal.
Park Edge Sweet Shoppe is actually the home of the original sponge candy sticks. They have been making hand-dipped chocolates since 1948, and are one of the only places that still freshly produces sponge several times a week.
In celebration of Mother’s Day, this local sweet shoppe is offering customizable gifts many moms would love to unwrap.
Each gift starts with a box of milk chocolate sponge candy, dark chocolate sponge candy, peanut butter sponge candy, sea salt caramels, or buffalo flats. You can choose either a 1/2 lb. or 1 lb. box of your mom’s favorite.
From here you can customize your gift to match your mother. You can add on a floral bouquet from April Spencer Floral Design, a spa gift card from Blu Spa & Salon, Buffalo-themed earrings or a colorful wine tumbler from Hometown Grace, or a raspberry pink shirt that says ‘mama’ in a Buffalo from JM Designs.
The best part? All of these small businesses are local to Buffalo and owned by women. So you’ll be supporting multiple women-owned when you shop for a gift for your mom.
The beauty of customization is you can build your gift to fit your budget. You can add on as many or as few items as you’d like to complete your gift.
P.S. If you’re strictly interested in gifting sweets, you can always opt for your mom’s favorite treats from Park Edge Sweet Shoppe instead. From milk chocolate and dark chocolate to orange chocolate to peanut butter, there’s a sponge candy flavor for everyone here!
