If you’re finding yourself in need of some charm and chocolate, look no further than SweetLife Lane in downtown White Bear Lake.
For those feeling extra indulgent as the temperature cools and the days shorten, the choice is clear: chocolate. The first room of this sweet escape is dedicated to small, hand-crafted products with a purpose, like Simón Coll and Animas Chocolate Company. Simón Coll’s decadent offerings are rooted in Barcelona, Spain, where they have been perfecting the art of chocolate for more than 175 years—pop a piece of their silky chocolate into your mouth, and you’ll become enveloped in melty layers of flavor. The Colorado-based Animas Chocolate Company focuses on high-quality chocolate confections, as well as bean-to-bar chocolate, meaning they process the chocolate from the cocoa beans themselves.
The store’s second room is dedicated to novelty and nostalgic treats, boasting shelves upon shelves filled to the brim with bright candies of every color—you’ll be excited to find many of your childhood favorites that will take you back to the sweeter moments spent with friends and family. Seacoast Sweets satisfies your craving for a crisp peppermint patty—or enjoy a twist on the original with peanut butter, coconut and even s’mores flavored patties. If you prefer a saltier snack, look for HR Poppin’ Snacks gourmet popcorn, which boasts over 60 different flavors to enjoy.
With these offerings and many more, SweetLife Lane has everything you need for that sugar fix. Click here to read more about shop owners Matt and Christi Schreyer and their sweet story.
