Sweet Tooth: Candy Blossoms in Cedar Falls


Shirley MacLeod said everybody has a great memory of candy, and that's just part of the fun of visiting Candy Blossoms.

"We carry old retro candies we can find. We have a lot of unique kids stuff. We carry Stone Cliff Wines in here. Lots of baking items. Just a good mix of gift ideas," said Shirley MacLeod.

A friend of MacLeod's opened the candy shop about a year ago, then MacLeod took over in June.

"Just a wild hair, I guess. I thought it was a fun place. I liked to frequent it as a customer, and so I thought it would be a great avenue to be creative," said MacLeod.

The shop is located in downtown Cedar Falls.

"I love the vibe on Main Street and people. Getting to have some regulars, and talk to the people and getting to know them. So that's fun," said MacLeod.

Shirley MacLeod had no prior experience running a candy shop, but she did have at least one important qualification.

"I am a candy lover," she said.

Candy Blossoms carries around 120 different kinds of bulk candy. Candy bouquets are a specialty item.

The store ships its creations around the U.S. and delivers to local areas. MacLeod said it takes about 45 minutes to an hour to make a candy bouquet, so you can even make a last minute order.

She hopes people who haven't already stopped in will decide to give in to their sweet tooth.
