image001Who doesn’t love chocolate? Who doesn’t love shopping? If you’re visiting Niagara Falls soon then you will have the decadent luxury of combining both of your favorite activities into one (or more) deliciously delightful days.

Visitors of all kinds flock to Niagara for its incredible shopping opportunities, which include outlet stores and local boutiques. However, one of Niagara’s most irresistible draws is its chocolate and candy stores. Whether you’re shopping for your own sweet tooth, picking up gifts for friends back home, or simply want to treat your children to a fun day in the candy store, these are just a few of the stores that will have you singing the praises of all things chocolate.

Pop & Lolly’s Candy Shop

With a specialized chocolatier on staff and many more colorful candy treats, Pop and Lolly’s on Niagara Parkway on the Canadian side of the falls is the perfect place to shop. You can choose from custom-made chocolates, or try the chocolate dipping station with all of your favorite fruits where you can dunk to your heart’s content. You can even try dipping other types of candy into the chocolate fountain to maximize the sweet factor.

The kids can see how hard candy is made or choose a multitude of their favorite candies to take home. This is also the perfect place to create a custom chocolate gift for a friend or loved one back home.

Candy Planet

How could you go wrong with a name like Candy Planet? This combination candy store and ice cream shop also specializes in fudge. Bring the whole family here for a well-deserved treat after a day of sightseeing, and be sure to pick up some of their world-famous fudge as a treat for yourself or for someone else.

The grownups can enjoy one of Candy Planet’s delicious coffees, while everyone browses their wide selection of candies, including many brands that aren’t often seen these days. They are located at the foot of Clifton Hill near the Hornblower Cruises, which is a very convenient spot that you’ll pass while strolling through the village.
