Sweet Tooth Nirvana: Andy’s Candy Apothecary


I spent a pleasurable half hour recently gawping at the colorful, sweet treats available at Andy’s Candy Apothecary on Ninth Street in downtown Sacramento. Brimming with scrumptious items, from dazzling artisan chocolates and jars and basketfuls of hard candies to fanciful lollipops and handcrafted, silky-soft caramels, Andy’s is a delectable treasure trove of goodies. I really like the shop’s old-fangled vibe and convivial, welcoming atmosphere (its motto is “we believe there’s a perfect candy for everyone”)—it’s a unique and wonderful addition to the city’s ever-evolving food landscape.
