If candy appeals to you, please, read on.“Candy appeals to everybody,” says Abel Horner, director of merchandising at Sugar Factory.

1. Sugar Factory

If you walk into any of the three Sugar Factory retail stores in Vegas, you’ll think you’ve died and gone to candy heaven.

“Everybody comes in and the first thing they react to is the overall atmosphere of the store. It’s a very hip, chic, adult candy shopping experience,” says Horner.

Though all of the shops carry the same merchandise, such as the Sugar Factory’s signature Couture Pops,  the biggest store is at Paris Las Vegas. It also features a restaurant and a chocolate lounge (Yes, as in lounge to specifically eat chocolate.)

2. Ethel M’s Chocolates

If you come to Las Vegas, you have to stop by Ethel M’s Chocolates. The chocolate shop is a staple of Las Vegas culture and with seven Las Vegas locations, getting to try one of their delicious lemon crèmes or chocolate-covered toffee bars should be easy. There is even a factory nearby that gives tours that show how the chocolates are made.

This two-story chocolate haven features everything chocolate. The retail area contains everything from traditional chocolate truffles to not-so-traditional chocolate-filled syringes and hug mugs (the only way to drink hot chocolate.)

4. Payard

Nestled in the back corner of The Appian Way at Caesars Palace, Payard Pâtisserie is the creation of one of the most notable chocolatiers and pastry chefs in Las Vegas.
