Last week while on date night, my husband and I discovered a new shop in the Kings’ Shops, Sugar Coast Candy. Walking into this shop is like stepping into a sugar-coated wonderland. The store’s interior is thoughtfully designed to transport visitors to a bygone era. Wooden shelves adorned with glass jars brimming with an assortment of candies line the walls, exuding an inviting charm that’s hard to resist. The moment you enter, the irresistible aroma of sweets embraces you, immediately igniting a sense of excitement and joy.
Sugar Coast Candy prides itself on offering an extensive selection of candies that cater to all tastes and preferences. From classics like candy buttons, rock candy, licorice twists, and jawbreakers to modern treats and international delights, every candy lover is sure to find their favorite indulgence.
But the store’s charm isn’t just about the candy; it’s about the experience. Sugar Coast Candy encourages visitors to embrace the child within and take their time browsing through the delightful jars, recalling memories of the past or discovering new favorites. It’s a haven where time seems to slow down, allowing everyone to savor the simple joys of life.
The friendly staff members greet regulars by name and warmly welcome new faces, making every visitor feel like part of the family. Locals and tourists alike come together, sharing stories of their favorite childhood candies and forming new connections over their shared love for confectionery.
Venturing east to the historic town of Hilo on Bayfront, candy enthusiasts will find another delightful haven – Sugar Coast Candy’s charming sister store. Embracing the same nostalgic spirit, the Hilo location offers a unique selection of candies that pays homage to the town’s rich cultural heritage. Just like its Waikoloa counterpart, the Hilo store fosters a sense of community and celebrates the joys of indulging in sweet memories.
So, the next time you find yourself in either Waikoloa or Hilo, take a step back in time and indulge in the simple pleasures of life at Sugar Coast Candy. After all, there’s nothing quite like the taste of nostalgia to sweeten your day and leave you with memories that will last a lifetime.
