Candy Bouquet opens Saturday

Candy Bouquet is ready to entertain your imagination.


If you are looking for something sweet in Torrington, you won’t have to look far come Saturday. Candy Bouquet on 274 East Main Street will be your one stop shop for everything sweetness and officially opens its doors to the Litchfield Hills community on Saturday. This isn’t your ordinary candy shop, however.  It is as bucolic as the Litchfield Hills and is ready to entertain your imagination, as well as your inner child. This place reminds you of simpler times, almost like it was a blast from the past and you are revisiting the 1950’s all over again. Though I wasn’t around in the 1950’s, I know a thing or two of what life was like back then from stories I have heard from the folks that I talk too, and they recall a time where life was at a slower pace, and Candy Bouquet is sure to be a place that will slow you down as you pause to take it all in. With all that candy, however, it won’t be such a long pause but it will most certainly be a very memorable one.

Not only will this place help you relive some childhood moments, it is also sure to be a hit with the kids, after all what kid doesn’t enjoy candy? I can’t think of too many who don’t to be honest with you and this is sure to be a store that they will flock too when they get home from school. It’s location is great and even though it isn’t in downtown, it is in close proximity where perhaps those who wine and dine in downtown can take a short stroll to this great corner location for a delicious treat or two. Tara Lindberg-Stevens, who is in charge of this whole tasty operation, has quite the following. Candy Bouquet is on Facebook and has currently just over 230 fans. With Tara’s positive energy, it is no wonder why she has the loyal following that she does! I have had the pleasure of meeting Tara a few times here in town and I must say she is really a personality plus, which really comes in handy when you are making the community a sweeter place to be.

    Congratulations on your new venture! Can’t wait to stop in and relive my child hood days at the penny candy store in Pine Meadow. The post office was located in the Getchell’s general strore on Main Street in Pine Meadow. A walk at lunchtime to get the mail always resulted in a stop at the penny candy window where you could feast your eyes on all the goodies including bazooka bubble gum, wax soda bottles, licorice and my all time favorite, sugar babies!
    I am sure you will help make many happy memories for the people who enter your Candy Bouquet store.
    Good Luck to you! I know you will do well!
