Everyone has a sweet tooth, and a vacation at Myrtle Beach’s Ocean Reef Resort is the perfect time to cheat a little on your diet and indulge in some of your favorite foods, especially sweets. From fudges and chocolates to taffy and childhood favorites, Myrtle Beach features multiple shops that will have your mouth watering! Check out these sweet spots and grab a few (or a lot) of your and your family’s favorite treats.
- IT’SUGAR — Specializing in gigantic versions of your favorite candies, IT’SUGAR can cure anyone’s sweet tooth in a big way. When you walk into this Broadway at the Beach shop, you’ll feel like an oompa loompa surrounded by foot-long pieces of taffy and extra-large versions of your favorite candy bars.
- I Love Sugar — With aisles and aisles of candy stocked to the ceiling, it would be impossible to not find something you’d love at this candy shop located across N. Ocean Boulevard from Plyler Park and a short walk from the SkyWheel. A Myrtle Beach favorite, I Love Sugar sells its candy by the pound, so you can grab a bag and fill it with all of your favorites, from M&Ms and Skittles to chocolate-covered pretzels and gummy worms!
- The Fudgery — In the 1980s, “Papa Fudge” Marshall opened the first Fudgery along the Outer Banks of North Carolina and revolutionized how fudge was made. He wanted his shop’s experience to be as good as the fudge, so he made sure all of his shops were inviting and entertaining for his customers. When you walk into the door, you will be greeted by workers who sing and whistle while they work, which is sure to put a smile on your face. Stop into one of the Fudgery’s five Grand Strand locations (including Barefoot Landing, Broadway at the Beach and both Tanger Outlets locations) today and dig your teeth into a great piece of fudge!
- River Street Sweets — This Georgia-based candy store started in Savannah in 1973 and has now become a regional phenomenon! River Street Sweets is famous for its pralines, which are a sweet treat made from cream, butter, sugar and Georgia pecans. The two Grand Strand shops, located at Broadway at the Beach and Barefoot Landing, also feature many other Southern delicacies, such as bear claws and saltwater taffy. Stop on in to try a treat for dessert and a real taste of the South!
Whether you are in the mood for a sweet treat or a decadent piece of chocolate, you are in the right place! With just a short drive from the Ocean Reef, you can find all of these sweet spots and satisfy any candy craving you might have!
