Located in downtown Greenville, River Street Sweets offers a large selection of candy and other items to satisfy your sweet tooth. Their flagship store opened in Savannah in 1973 and specializes in handmade chocolates and homemade ice cream. We’ve heard the pralines are delightful!

Most people know Kilwin’s for their ice cream, but the stores boast a variety of candies and other sweets, too.

The Chocolate Shoppe

A long-time Greenville staple, The Chocolate Shoppe offers more than just chocolate-covered sweets. (Although, delicacies such as Cheesecake Centers, Chocolate Covered Oreos, and Chocolate Covered Marshmallows are all drool-worthy). They’re known for their chocolate chip cookies, so if you do pop in to grab some sweets, be sure to try a cookie while you’re there.

The newest candy shop on the upstate scene, you’ll find Candy and Chronicles in Fountain Inn, SC, beside STEAM Coffee. The shop is both a candy store and a book shop, which we think is a pretty great combination. You’ll find a wide array of themed candy, traditional and old-time candy, plus books, toys, and events.
