Bon Appetit, Ottawa!

Want to know the hottest ticket in town tonight?? It's to Bon Appetit Ottawa! Every year this amazing event raises money for local charities and celebrates the best in Ottawa's food community. What's even better, is that this year's event has a Going Green Initiative to help make this year's event a very green affair!

Taking inspiration from all things green, The Candy Store will be at this year's event with a fresh and bright table filled with green and blue delights! From malt balls to bon bons and beautiful little cupcakes from The Cupcake Lounge, we're in for a sparkling night. Please come say hello to us and sample a treat or two!

Didn't get a ticket in time to this sold-out event? Not to worry, we'll be setting up our display in the store later this week so that we can share the spring-like palette. We will, of course, also make sure to snap some photos in between nibbles!

Bon appetit, Ottawa!
