Something Sweet should be at the top of your to-do list when visiting historic downtown Allegan. The shop is located on the west side of Locust Street which is the main street of Allegan. This nostalgic chocolate and candy shop has everything you could dream of to satisfy your sweet tooth. From the cases of exquisite truffles in every flavor to the shelves of your favorite jelly bean, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. Something Sweet is nearby other Allegan shops and antiques, and easy walking distance away from the town’s gazebo and boardwalk overlooking the Kalamazoo River.
Something Sweet is open Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturdays 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The prices are incredibly reasonable especially for the high-end chocolates and truffles that can’t be found in your average candy shop. Something Sweet also does an amazing job at putting together gift baskets with any combination of chocolates and snacks. Aside from candies, they have a great selection of gift items to add in to your basket. Keep an eye out for the owner of the shop, Diana, who is as sweet as her chocolates, and so incredibly helpful. It’s obvious by the wide variety of chocolates and candies that Diana works non-stop to make sure she finds the perfect chocolate for everyone. Where else can you find a jalapeño chocolate truffle next to a truffle made of dark chocolate ganache and topped with flaked Gaelic sea salt? Diana knows a wealth of information about the town itself, and is always more than willing to direct visitors to the best stops nearby. The personalized service really adds to the small town experience.
From the Author: Over the years, I've enjoyed stopping in to the store for a truffle or chocolate and to hear the latest news about the town from Diana. On my most recent visit, I noticed a display of every jelly bean flavor I could imagine- including beer flavored which I had to try simply to satisfy my curiosity. The Jelly Belly tasted exactly like a hefeweizen brew, and I grabbed a dollar's worth to surprise a friend and fellow beer lover.
