Got sweets? The Candy Dish does!

We are so lucky to have our own local candy store.

These days, when everyone seems to be concerned with making the "right" impression by patronizing expensive chocolate specialty shops, it's nice to have a neighbourhood store where everyone feels comfortable enough to meander in and get what they want, when they want it.

From doting grandparents, lovestruck teenagers, sleepy workers looking for a quick afternoon pick-me-up, or lollipop junkies craving a sweet fix - everyone can find what they want at the Candy Dish, without having to fork out a fortune.

When was the last time you saw kids slapping their coins on the counter of your big name chocolate shops in the malls? Or a little boy simply dropping his bicycle on the sidewalk to get a handful of jelly beans?

Or preschoolers gazing starry eyed at the jars of sweet temptations dancing in a window?

Of course, the owner of Candy Dish is keeping many noses pressed against her front windows with displays that constantly change to reflect holidays and major celebrations.
The next time find yourself in Steveston, go on in and have a look around. You'll find colourful displays that would please your eyes and palate - not to mention your pocket books.
