Sweet! Hollywood

Sweet! Hollywood is a Willy Wonka-esq candy shop located on Hollywood Blvd in the heart of Hollywood.

I read about it when it opened a few years ago and have been wanting to visit ever since. Inside, you’ll find a huge assortment of candy, including many hard-to-find throwbacks to your childhood. You can also design your own custom chocolate bar.

I was particularly enamored with the displays of Hello Kitty and Tokidoki collections.

They had a huge selection of Japanese kit kats, including this new baked version I’ve been trying to find. They were extremely expensive though, so I didn’t get those.

Bacon themed:

Star Wars:

Floor mat:

On the exterior, they have several display cases reenacting scenes from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

We had a lot of fun here. Even if you don’t end up buying anything, there is a lot to see. I expected things to be horribly overpriced because it’s such a touristy area, but most of the prices were quite reasonable.

I ended up purchasing some candies from my childhood, a bag of Frozen themed shimmering Jelly Bellies, and a custom candy bar.

  1. Ooh, I spy mini Uglydolls (holding even smaller Uglydolls) under the bacon themed candy! I didn’t know that Tokidoki did a candy collab. Cute packaging though. TC would love it here. 🙂

  2. Mmm…  Delicious candy!  🙂  Must resist…  Keep that credit card in the wallet…

  3. I can’t walk into candy stores like this one and not walk out with a ton of stuff. I was a candy junkie growing up and would try any new candy I could find. I used to love Razzles as a kid but when I tried it again a couple of years back, it just wasn’t what I remembered. I’m wondering if Hello Kitty bubble gum would still taste as good? 

    • Lol! The razzles. I had the same feeling. I was so excited seeing them because I liked them growing up and then when I ate the ones we bought this time, I was like “eh were they always like this?” I’m pretending they changed their formula and were not always this way.

  4. Oh boy. I want to go nuts with the custom chocolate bars. What was in yours?

  5. This is a place I want to go to!

  6. Such memories: there was a penny candy store on the next corner and most items were a penny (Ice Cubes were 2¢.  Yep; I’m old.)  Now I am always on the lookout for interesting black licorice confections…the Hello Kitty items are so darn cute- no mouth, but you know she is smiling.

    • i was excited for the 25 cent box ones! they remind me of the ones I used to get from the ice cream man and I was happy that they were really 25 cents!

  7. For some reason, that first photo of the exterior makes it look like it’s in Horton Plaza to me. I love all of the displays! I’d totally make my own chocolate bar, too. How can you resist that?! 

    • oh, you are right! it does look like horton. Yeah, a custom choc bar is so fun. and they had a crazy amount of choices for add-ins!
