Mike's Candy Shop

2110 Clinton Street, Buffalo, NY - (716) 826-6515

The filling almost looks like some sort of creme-oid, but it is in fact the most delicious homemade marshmallow.

Chocolate covered marshmallows. The difference between freshly-made marshmallows and those you buy in bags at the grocery store is like that between champagne and grape juice.

A cross-section of sponge candy can only hint at the ethereal weightlessness of the spun sugar within.

Stolen Haven (aka stolen heaven) is marshmallow cream, milk chocolate and a blanket of chopped walnuts.

The candy cases are filled with beautiful homemade chocolates.  The Chaplins are the wrapped-in-plastic logs.

Sponge candy, homemade of course, is another Buffalo favorite.  It can be seen here on the lower shelf in both milk and dark chocolate varieties.

You're likely to encounter trays of freshly made chocolates cooling in the shop, like these trays of orange meltaways.

Mike's is a small, unassuming neighborhood candy store that happens to make superb traditional chocolate-based candy.
