Nob Hill + Russian Hill
Situated in Russian Hill’s trendy retail corridor, this old-fashioned sweet shop contains white walls, wood-trimmed shelves, and rows of glass apothecary jars filled with colorful candies. Owner Diane Campbell and husband Brian make their own brittle and toffee, but they also travel the globe collecting hard-to-find sweets such as green tea Kit Kats from Japan, Cadbury Flake chocolate bars from the United Kingdom, and sour raspberry Hallonshots from Sweden. The shop specializes in nostalgic candies, such as Pop Rocks and Necco Wafers, as well as unusual flavors—gumballs, for instance, come in flavors like pink lemonade and mango chili.
The Candy Store does not have any seating, but you can walk to nearby Helen Wills Park and enjoy your confections on a bench beside the playground and basketball court.
