It’s the most romantic month of the year, and at Parkway 25 Luxury Apartments, we’re all for love, especially when it comes in the form of sweet, decadent candy. To charm your significant other (or simply indulge yourself) we’ve compiled a list of cute shops in and around the St. Louis Park area. Enjoy, with love.
5007 Excelsior Blvd, St. Louis Park, MN 55416
For the ultimate chocolate lover, the Droolin’ Moose candy shop is about as tempting as they come. Locally-owned with three locations in the metro area, this Minnesota-centric treat hub offers a wide variety of chocolate sweets, as well as V-day gift packages and even a monthly chocolate subscription box that you can have delivered to your front door. We’d recommend the Rustic Blues (sweet blueberries covered in milk chocolate), the Yellow Jackets (almonds covered in lemon cream and white chocolate), or the classic Salty Bogs (chocolate-covered caramels with sea salt).
A one-stop-shop for unique designer gifts, Max’s in St. Louis Park also boasts a delectable array of high-end chocolates from around the world. Pick up sumptuous treats such as bars, caramels, truffles, toffee and more with ingredients such as chili peppers, blueberries, and olive oil in them. While you’re there, peruse beautiful hand-crafted jewelry and art objects made by talented independent designers. After all, nothing says “I love you” better than the classic combo of chocolate and jewelry.
If chocolate isn’t quite their thing, make a stop at Sweet Jules in Minnetonka, where a glorious variety of rich, chewy caramel treats await. Started by sisters Jule and Hope, this “sweet” little shop peddles handcrafted candy made with real ingredients. Pick up a pretty gift box for your love, or pop in and select a custom array tailored to your own taste. With flavor choices such as banana fosters, beer and pretzel, and French sea salt, these confections will certainly win you cupid points.
If it’s a classic candy shop selection you desire, head over to Southdale Center to indulge in an eclectic array of confections, from creamy chocolates to toffees, brittles, hand-crafted lollipops and much, much more. Belly up to the candy counter and create a customized treat box for your love, or select from a wide variety of pre-packaged See’s-brand sweets.
