Phoenix New Times' Description

Forget your notions of what a candy store should be. We’re not saying remakes of retro candy aren’t delicious, but the shop that sells them doesn’t need to be stuck in time. Smeeks, “a sweet little shop for sweet little folks,” is an update on the candy stores of our grandparents’ generation. While you’re sure to find old timey treats like Abba-Zaba and C. Howard’s Violet, owner Georganne Bryant, who also operates Frances Vintage boutique, scours the country to stock Smeeks’ shelves with modern-day delights. The candy collection includes local treasures like Tracy Dempsey Originals and Goodytwos Toffee, as well as out-of-state imports including handmade Hammond’s chocolate bars in flavors like More S’mores and PB&J Sandwich and artisanal selections from Whimsical Candy like handmade sea salt caramels and the three-day labor of love called La-Dee-Dahs. Smeeks also stays on top of seasonal specialties, like Pumpkin Patch Pop Rocks in the fall and heart-shaped Valentine’s candies in February.

    A fun little candy shop and novelty store. They've got all the good stuff that you remember from when you were a kid (or even before that if you're young). I found some super cute salt and pepper shakers here, that I love - they are black and white swallows.

    Great novelty candy and knickknacks. Plus, locally owned.

    If you know a small child (of any age, really) then you should absolutely go here. Great fun, great atmosphere; you could spend hours just looking at the candy alone.

    Hands down my fave candy shop. Everything & anything sweet and sour is at Smeeks. And make sure you take pics in the photo booth! :)
