RICHMOND HEIGHTS - The only thing better than a candy store would have to be a candy megastore, right?! This is what All City Candy, in Richmond Heights, claims to be. So Gremi took a bit of time today to test these claims for himself, and he was not disappointed.
While exploring the candy coated aisles covered in endless confections, encompassing all shapes, sizes, types and eras, Gremi found himself strolling down memory lane as fun childhood memories flooded back. Fun Fact: All City Candy houses over 5,000 different types of candy within their walls.
All City Candy offers a wide selection of sweets, including classic favorites like chocolate bars and gummy worms, as well as more unusual treats like Australian licorice and sour gummies. They also have special products that are sugar-free and fat-free to cater to customers with dietary restrictions and making sure they aren't left out of the fun.
The store's bright and colorful interior is sure to delight candy lovers of all ages, and the friendly staff is always happy to help customers find exactly what they're looking for.
During the CleveItToUs episode, Gremi and Sapell took viewers on a tour of the store, highlighting some of its most popular items and sharing some of the history behind the business. Sapell, who has run All City Candy for over 9 years, shared that she was inspired to open the store after growing up in her family's grocery business and having a desire to provide a service to customers while making 'sweet' memories for them to fondly recall throughout their lives. She wanted to bring a sense of adventure and discovery to her customers, and that's exactly what she's done.
One of the standout features of All City Candy is its bulk candy section, where customers can choose from a wide variety of sweets and create their own custom mix. Gremi and Elisabeth showed off the various options available, from sweet taffy, to rich chocolate-covered espresso beans and malted milk balls.
Elisabeth is also passionate about supporting other local businesses and charities. She believes that by working together, small businesses can help each other thrive and grow, and that the key to success is collaboration rather than competition.
All City Candy caters to local and international customers because not only is their brick-and-morter right here in Cleveland, but they ship EVERYWHERE!
Overall, All City Candy is a must-visit destination for anyone with a sweet tooth in the Richmond Heights area. With its unique selection of treats and friendly, knowledgeable staff, it's a candy lover's paradise. Thanks to Gremi and CleveItToUs for bringing this local gem to the attention of viewers.
