Confectionery named City's Best!

When City Guide Seattle started their search for the top 5 local places to grab sweets for Halloween, they were wowed by our holiday selection! We're so excited that City Guide included us on their list, and even featured some of the fantastic pre-wrapped Halloween gifts we sell every day at the store.

Here's what City Guide's Caitlin King had to say:
 A wonderland of sweets, The Confectionery fills its jars with delicious seasonal favorites for everyone to enjoy. This Halloween, treat yourself to spooky Popping Frankenstein Truffles (made with real Pop Rocks) or caramel apples dipped in handmade buttery caramel, decorated with the likes of toffee, milk chocolate, dark chocolate with sea salt and white chocolate with cinnamon sugar. If you do anything, try the shop's most popular seasonal item, candy corn. "Our candy corn is creamy and flavorful. It's a seasonal favorite," says owner Kristi Homes.
Only a few more days left before Halloween, so be sure to make it down to the store and pick up your favorites!
