Sugarfina Opens at Metropolis at Metrotown

Diana Chan November 16, 2017 Burnaby Central, Specialty Shop

Sugarfina, the world’s finest candy boutique, introduces it’s first Canadian boutique to Metropolis at Metrotown. Metrotown has definitely gotten a little bit sweeter as it’s located beside Build-a-Bear.

The instagramable boutique welcomes shoppers to candy heaven with a sweet selection of treats for every occasion, from perfectly-packaged hostess gifts to Champagne Bears for brunch.

Inside, guests will find 80+ gourmet candies from around the world, three-quarters of which are exclusively available at Sugarfina. There is a lot more available here compared to the other location inside Nordstrom in Downtown. It’s like a candy museum.

You can customize your own candy gift with the Design Your Own Candy Bento Box experience, which features an eye-catching wall of the brand’s finest chocolates, caramels, gummies, and jellies, packaged into signature lucite Candy Cubes. Customize a 3pc, 4pc or 8pc Candy Bento Box, or go over-the-top with the luxurious Sugarfina Candy Trunk which holds 20 Candy Cubes.

A good gift if you want to turn someone’s frown upside down. They also do in-store sampling where they offer complimentary daily samples and a candy Happy Hour each Thursday night where guests can sample a entire flight of candies.

Holiday Collection

For some, it may be too soon for the holidays, but I love it. My husband was mesmerized by some of the seasonal flavours like:

  • Santa Gingerbread Cookie Bites
  • Reindeer Noses
  • Party Penguins
  • Pumpkin Pie Caramels
  • Fiji Apple Caramels
  • S’mores
  • Pale Ale Pints

Makes for great gifts and stocking stuffers for kids or adults.

Hanukkah Collection

I thought it was great and inclusive that they have gifts for Hannukkah too. Inside the Hanukkah Candy Bento Box are three kosher Candy Cubes packaged with Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels, Robins Egg Caramels, and Champagne Bubbles.

Sanrio ❤ Sugarfina Collection

Their popular Sanrio ❤ Sugarfina Collection is available and they have lots in stock.

Sweet Bake Shop x Sugarfina

At the grand opening, they invited guests to learn how to decorate Sugarfina-inspired cookies with Tessa Sam from Sweet Bake Shop.

I’ve been following Tessa for a while and learning some basic techniques was pretty fun.

I tried my best but I am not very good at decorating. I’ll leave it to the experts as I just eat.

If you’re at Metropolis at Metrotown looking for a good gift for any occasion, you’ll want to check out Sugarfina.
