'Tis (Still) the (Wedding) Season

Here are some initial boxes we filled with lemon, pina colada,
French vanilla and Licorice Jelly Belly beans for a wedding recently! The great thing about these boxes is you can fill them with almost anything--truffles, milkies, jordan almonds, malt balls--in custom colors to go perfectly with your party theme!

What's better than adorable and delicious Jelly Belly wedding favors? Pairing those with cupcakes from Sprinkles. They are the best cupcakes!

Oh, Those Summer Nights

If you haven't come down to the University Village for the Summer Concert Series, you are really missing out! But don't worry, there are two more Wednesday night concerts coming up--- The Paperboys next week (Aug. 12), and Clinton Fearon & The Boogie Brown Band the week after that (Aug. 19). In addition to our favorite gummies and sours, we've been serving up ice cream, floats, cotton candy and popcorn.
