Everytime I walk into this store, I feel happy. If you are feeling stressed out right now, perhaps candies are the best solution to that problem. And the good news is, Candylicious has opened its highly anticipated second extension at Orchard Road’s Takashimaya. It also means I do not have to go to Resorts World to find that largest ‘Pick and Mix’ wall in Asia.
At Candylicious, there is an extensive range of candy and chocolates that have never been
seen in Singapore; Madelaine Chocolates, Rock Candy from Squire Boone Village, Messori Italian Cones, and varieties of Belgian Chocolates. Additional brands such as novelty M&M’s with a colourworks feature, every flavour of Jelly Belly, lollipops in all shapes and sizes flourishing from floor to ceiling are the tempting treats that await you.
I speak to Sunaina Gill, Director of Shopping Bag (S) Pte Ltd who brought Candylicious to Singapore, on her sweet tooth.
You have such a sweet tooth. Why do you love chocolate so much?
I have loved chocolate since as far back as I can remember. As a child, I grew up in a house where my parents travelled a lot and would bring home chocolate from all over the world. I grew up loving all kinds of milk chocolate. I definitely have a sweet tooth and need my chocolate fix on a daily basis.
Tell us What is your favourite chocolate and candy?
My favorite chocolate as a child was Reese Peanut Butter Cups and my favorite candy was Gummy Bears. However, as I grew older I acquired a taste for dark chocolate and tend to have a little bit of dark chocolate after lunch and dinner (daily!).
If you are customer entering Candylicious, which are your candies you will grab first?
Some of my favourite chocolates in the store are Reese Peanut Butter Cups, Hershey’s Dark Chocolate, Bloomsberry, Emergency Bars and Gummy Bears.
Which candy would you recommend to relieve the stress of Singaporeans?
I would recommend dark chocolate to relieve the stress of Singaporeans. Recent studies show that eating dark chocolate may lower levels of stress hormones in people feeling stressed out. For example, cocoa has been found to be rich in a class of antioxidants called flavonoids, which have been linked to a number of health benefits. Other compounds in dark chocolate that may offer health benefits such as reduced blood pressure and improved mood.
