Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth Locally

As the region anxiously awaits the full reopening of all of our favorite businesses, there’s one sweet way to deal with all that stress! Takeout and delivery have become staples of all of our diets, but restaurants aren’t only serving apps and entrees—don’t forget about dessert! As we age, it’s important to take healthy eating seriously, but with the stress of the last few months heavy on everyone’s minds, indulging every now and then in a sweet treat can be just what the doctor ordered—and there’s plenty of places to find them right near your Canvas Valley Forge apartment. Since June is the host of a number of special “holidays” celebrating all things sugar—with specific days for doughnuts, chocolate ice cream, smoothies and chocolate pudding all this month—what better reason to indulge, all while supporting local businesses?


One great spot to do that is Nancy’s Candy Corner in nearby Wayne. The shop, located less than 10 minutes from your Canvas Valley Forge apartment, has stayed open through the crisis, offering convenient curbside pickup. In business for nearly 30 years, the family-owned and operated candy store is a staple of Wayne’s downtown shopping district, which is in need of community support more than ever. So take the quick drive over to see what they’ve got (and place your order by phone or online ahead of time!).


Nancy’s is known for its chocolate-covered pretzels—it offers gourmet selections with 18 different toppings, including mint, chocolate chips, sea salt, M&Ms and more. Pick up some bark, non-pareils, old-fashioned candies and much more. The shop also features balloons and other decorative items—so if you’re taking part in a virtual birthday celebration or a drive-by party and want to add some pizzazz, Nancy’s is your place to go.


We’ll all be back into the swing of things soon, but until then, take a little time to treat yourself!
