Good News Sackville- SugaRush

One of the things I remember about growing up here in Lower Sackville is the candy store attached to the IGA. Both now are long gone. Yet I still remember with great joy heading into a store that was wall to wall treats. Wided eyed I would look around wondering what would I buy with my reward money for being a good boy while my parents grocery shopped.

I must admit I have been a little sad that I haven’t been able to give my children that same wide eyed experience. I think every kid needs to visit a candy store from time to time. After all the long used simile ‘like a kid in a candy store’ reminds us just how much fun, excitement, and joy this trip can bring.

Apparently Haley the manager of the family owned SugaRush knew of my plight and decided that Sackville needed a candy story again. Simeon deeply agreed.

Can't smile, too much candy to eat

Can’t smile, too much candy to eat

When I took Simeon into SugaRush his eyes widened with great amazement. Everywhere he looked there were treats and toys. I told him he could pick out one thing for himself, one thing for Ariella, and two things to share. Well it didn’t take him long to start zipping around the store looking at all the brightly coloured boxes and treats.

While Simeon was having his first ‘kid in a candy store’ experience I was having my first ‘dad with a kid in a candy store’ experience. Admittedly I was becoming a little anxious as he grabbed at boxes, and tried to sample some of the bulk candies. But the staff were so kind, so understanding and so welcoming.

They knew what it meant for a kid to be a kid in a candy store, and what it meant to be a parent with a kid in a candy store. The clerks chuckled with me as I tried to fix the boxes Simeon knocked over, and they chatted with my very excited son as he scoured the whole store for the best treat to pick out for his sister. The candy selection won my son’s loyalty their great customer service won over mine. Having such a wonderful new candy store here in Sackville that I can take my children to is without a doubt good news,


My Brother Got Me A Yummy Treat!

Simeon could barely wait to get home to tear into his treat, and give Ariella hers. Candy really is best shared. Which is why I am pleased to say that SugaRush has given me a basket filled with delicious treats to share.

  1. I am glad you had a positive experience … I spotted the sign the other day but hadn’t yet had the opportunity to get there. I have to been disappointed in the past by other stores so a positive review is a good starting place.

  2. We’ve been talking about candy stores around the HRM at work lately; this one is a little out of the way but it would be worth the adventure!

  3. my kids loved going i there this weekend for the first time thre was lots to bit from and the kids loved it!! the store was nice the staff was great we will be back!!

  4. What?! I miss living in a (large-ish) city. The closest thing we have to a candy store in Miramichi is Bulk Barn :(. BUT, if I win this – I will drive all the way to Halifax just to claim my prize! haha

  5. Yaaay !! After your blog post I decided I “needed” to check this out (AND that I needed to win this basket!!). Sugarrush did not disappoint!!
