Something Sweet is the name of a candy store in downtown Allegan. Boy howdy, are we lucky to have it, too.
I'll be honest. I wasn't sure that Allegan would support a really nice candy store with quality candy. I was a bit afraid we were too much of an M&M town. I am so glad I was proven wrong.
Yes, the candy is excellent but a lot of the credit for the success of this store goes to this woman.
The woman on the left, not the darling sidekick on the right. This is the owner, Diana Doest. She has never once wavered in her attention to every single customer. You could take in an old, stained coffee mug and ask her to fill it up with goodies and she would and also, she'd wrap that thing up and slap a bow on it to boot. BTW, I apologize to her granddaughter for forgetting her name. I was so sure I wouldn't but I took this photo last week. That was a loooooooong time ago - in my book anyway.
Drooling yet? If you can't find it here, it hasn't been made yet.
I always think of this as the "retro rack." I know, there's some Skittles in there and they certainly aren't considered retro but I see Neccos and that's what takes me back. Remember those?
This display holds different flavored teas, coffees and hot chocolates. Yum!
Seasonal gifts. Great for the teacher, mail carrier, hair dresser, etc.
This is just one example of what Diana can do for you. Stop in. You won't be sorry. Tell her Ellen sent ya.
