The Sweet Shop Grand Opening Celebration
Fro-yo girl here. I’ve just returned from The Sweet Shop’s Grand Opening Celebration in pretty Los Altos (10/3). The shop, which looks like a charming home, complete with a patio, red & white striped candy like lanterns and a dog parking area, is in the middle of a quiet residential neighborhood with no other stores in sight. I spotted the swarms of kids and balloons and thought it was a kid’s birthday party.
During the celebration, the employees clad in Sweet Shop red & white t-shirts, handed out samples of fro-yo. Kids had the choice of various candy crafts, including building your own candy necklace and candy sand art. Someone who looked just like Willy Wonka (the Johnny Depp one) was on hand to announce the raffle winner (the prize was an iPod Nano while I was there). They also introduced the architect and the person in charge of construction.
Inside the shop, it was sugar heaven with big cookies covered in pastel frosting, Sibby’s cupcakes (mini and full size, chocolate and vanilla flavors with balloon decorations in honor of the grand opening), candy sold by the pound in glass jars with the most adorable colorful enamel lids and crystal knobs, gourmet chocolates, coffee drinks, 4 kinds of creamy fro-yo (Country vanilla, Peach mango tart, Cable Car chocolate, Original tart), cake slices, muffins, massive rice krispies treats, Dippin’ Dots, and more!
Indulge without too much guilt; all proceeds will benefit public schools in Los Altos and they use compostable cups and spoons.
You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.
