An article in the USA Today named the ten great candy stores in the US.
One of them happens to be Enchanté in Milwaukie, OR. Until recently the candy shop was called Milwaukie Popkorn and Candyland. The owner changed the name after her mother passed away because her mother always thought she should change the name to Enchanté. I stopped in Saturday and congratulated the owner on getting written up in USA Today. She said it was a surprise.
I have been a fan of this little shop for years. They make the best cheese popcorn that I have tasted. For holidays I quite often buy mixed candies to take to parties or the office. This is another example of my trying to support the local businesses and economy.
“This Portland-area shop, fashioned after Parisian candy shops of the early 1900s, has captured Kaie Wellman’s (US Today author)heart. “They do little hand-packaged truffles that use three different types of black-and-white paper. You want it as much for the packaging as for what’s inside it, and that’s saying something.”
The owner of Enchanté played a big part in organizing Art a la Carte-First Friday in Milwaukie. I haven’t been to this event yet but want to go next month. It sounds a lot of fun and good entertainment.
