Who doesn’t love candy?
We stopped by IT’SUGAR at the Venetian’s Grand Canal Shoppes today for its grand opening and discovered this isn’t your typical candy shop.
Located near TAO Asian Bistro & Nightclub, the brand new IT’SUGAR is the largest candy store in Las Vegas. The 5,000-square-foot shop offers all of the sweets you can think of like chocolate, gummy bears, jaw breakers, sour belts and more. After all, it’s not every day you see gigantic Rice Krispie Treats, big boxes of Nerds, Gobstoppers and SweeTARTS or Tootsie Pops the size of your dome! IT’SUGAR is also the first in Vegas to feature a “store-within-a-store” dedicated exclusively to WONKA products.
I felt like I was in a fantasy world. And just when things couldn’t be any more surreal, we got to see Oompa Loompas posing with candy. This is a dream I didn’t want to wake up from.
In addition to all the goodies, you can purchase Hello Kitty dolls and purses (score!), candles, bath products and other fun souvenirs. For hardcore candy lovers with a flair for fashion, IT’SUGAR sells a custom hand-crafted lambskin leather Laffy Taffy jacket – complete with Swarovski crystals – for a whopping $2,499. While that’s clearly out of my price range, I had fun looking at it (along with the other mannequins donning “candy” dresses).
Be one of the first to preview the store. You’ll be craving candy in no time. For more store information, the direct number is (702) 457-0731.
