This Neighborhood Candy Store In Idaho Will Make You Feel Like A Kid Again

If your sweet tooth is anything like mine, it’s near impossible to resist the sweet, come-hither beckoning of juicy fruit snacks, creamy chocolates, and delightfully tart confections of every shape and size. Which means the thought of a local candy shop overflowing with colorful treats is enough to make you forget that the word “vegetable” even exists.

Boise’s beautiful Bown Crossing is a special area that is hard not to fall in love with. Quaint stores line the charming main street – it’s never unusual to drive through and see folks in the community talking, laughing, eating, and shopping in a casual small town atmosphere in the middle of the big city. Tucked away within this lovely section of Idaho’s capital is an adorable old-school candy shop that is not only filled top to bottom with your favorite retro and undiscovered candies, but features over a dozen flavors of gelato, a cotton candy machine, and so much more. What’s not to love?

If visions of chocolate-covered gummy bears ever dance in your head, this is definitely the place for you.

I know I’m already cravin’ some Cravin’s. How about you?!

Cravin’s is one of those throwback gems that epitomizes the community and local heart that makes Idaho so special. If your sweet tooth is craving something a little more, check out this list of just a few of Idaho’s best candy and chocolate shops.
