The Candy Pushers started in January 2018, “pushing” our candy cart at PRIDE parties, street fairs and private music events. In July 2020, we became The Candy Pushers of Candy Depot when we took ownership of the 26yr old boutique candy shop located near the Hillcrest sign. This is where Fudge Master Melissa and Sugar Mama Shannon were born. Our dreams and commitment to serving our community were bigger than our small space would allow, so we moved to a larger space on University Ave in July 2021, becoming The Candy Pushers once again, we are excited to be an inclusive safe space in the community, providing a FUN, FRIENDLY, and FLAVORFUL experience to all!
If you're looking for FUN things to do with friends or family, we've got you covered at our candy shop! We have tons of card and board games for all ages, karaoke, and much more. We're pretty FRIENDLY around here and will have you feeling like our best friend as soon as you walk through the doors! If you are wanting something FLAVORFUL, look no further...
Do you fancy taffy, jelly bellys, Mexican candies, gummies, chocolate or even chocolate covered gummies? With over 1000 different varieties to choose from, we are sure that you will find something to satisfy your sweet tooth! We even have a great selection of retro candy that will bring forth fond childhood memories across generations.
If you are looking for something with a little more pizzazz, visit the decadent chocolate case in the Creation Station. You'll find the Fudge Master's phenomenal fresh homemade fudge, a variety of specialty chocolates, and terrific truffles!
The concept is easy... Create-Your-Own-Bag! Come on in and get a little... or a lot ... there's no judgment in our candy shop! Treat yourself... You deserve it!!
The history of the candies we carry are super interesting to me and I thought if it's interesting to me, it could be interesting for others! So, here's a little history lesson, brought to you by, The Candy Pusher, Candy Queen Shannon! Enjoy!!
