Sassafras Sweet Shoppe

115 E. Morse Blvd., Winter Park

Don’t get us wrong, Sassafras isn’t just a nostalgia trip. No matter your age – 6 years old or 60 years old – Sassafras will have your favorite childhood candy. Those of mature years will get a rush from the shelves stuffed with Abba-Zaba, Charleston Chew, Turkish Taffy and Goo-Goo Clusters. Gen X’ers can drop bucks on Pop Rocks and Ring Pops. Sophisticates can choose from silver-wrapped Italian Baci bonbons, marzipan fruits or tiny tins of blood-orange Ginger Zingers. Snarky sorts will enjoy Honey Badger Mints, bacon gumballs or sour cream-and-onion flavored dried crickets (really). The tiny sugar shack is an inviting hangout, decorated with old-fashioned apothecary touches and red-and-white striped everything; it’s hard to believe so much sweetness can be packed into such a small space.
