bulk candy store

gerbera Apr 13, 2009 10:01 AM


Just wondering if there are still any bulk candy stores in Montreal. I'm not looking for fancy-schmancy candy. Just stuff like sours, gummis, cinnamon candies, swedish berries...

There used to be one in Le Faubourg but I haven't been there in ages.

    There's one on Swail (parallel to and a short block north of Queen Mary) just east of Côte-des-Neiges. Don't buy candy so I've never set foot in it but it looks pretty well decked out.

      there is also one on Mont Royal bet. Cartier and Bordeaux called Sucreries du Soleil. They also have Voortman's cookies in bulk, and every kind of gummies your heart desires.

          The one in le Faubourg is called Scoops. I find their prices kind of steep.

            I find their candy prices reasonable

            What about Biscuit Oscar on St-Hubert.

            There's another Oscar on Ontario St. (http://www.oscar.qc.ca/), probably the same thing.

              There's one on the west side of St. Hubert near Beaubien. They have a decent selection of European chocolates, candies and cookies, as well as your standard assortment of sweets.

                Eaton Centre -- Sugar Heaven, in the basement right next to Burger King and on the Metro level there is Sweet Factory

                Both are over priced in my opinion, but for those who just want a few samples of each type of candy, it's worth it!

                  There is also a Bonbonnière Sweet Factory at Alexis Nihon.

                  there's Sucre bleu:
                  1741 St. Denis; (514)282-1440
                  3656 St. Laurent; (514)543-1072
                  2015 Crescent ; (514)678-3115

                  I'd call first though, because I think one of those locations closed. I've only been to the one on St-Denis, but they have ice cream and slushies as well.

                    The Crescent and St-Laurent locations are closed.
