Barry went above and beyond for our candy event. He made excellent suggestions and worked overtime to keep within our budget meeting the specifications of the venue and of each member of our blended family. Being able to bring our daughter to the store for a 'taste test' enabled her to choose the exact candy she wanted for her special day. Sweet Emotions is a delight in every way and I could not give a high enough recommendation of Barry and the creative confection of the shop he owns. Book him today while he is still the best kept secret in Connecticut!!

Not only was the candy awesome but so was the service! It made our wedding reception, pleased our guests and tasted great. We highly recommend them for any event!

I truly enjoyed working with Sweet Emotions. The Candy Buffet brought a level of lightheartedness and fun to my mother's 60th birthday party. It was definitely a conversation piece! The customized Lilly Pulitzer inspired labels and stickers were a hit. Sweet Emotions definitely has an artistic eye when it comes to matching the vision you have for your event. Thank you again and I look forward to working with you again in the future!

Thank you Barry and Sweet Emotions for the most AMAZING Candy Buffet at our Anniversary Gala! The candy was delicious and my oh my the display was out of this world! EVERYONE raved about how wonderful it all was and your warm, kind, joyous personality was the cherry on top! Thank you again from the Toriography Dance Center for an incredible job! :)

Sweet Emotions and Barry were such a dream to work with and they instill confidence and reassurance to a frazzled mother trying to plan a 7 year old's birthday party. The party itself was terrific and the candy art was a huge hit. Julia had tremendous patience and kept everyone as under control and interested as could be hoped. The party favors were spectacular and every kid there still hasn't stopped talking about it. Thank you for making my daughter's birthday a memorable one. You guys are the best!
Amanda - Birthday Party
Thanks for a great event. Our kid LOVED it, and his friends were still talking about it the next day.

I'm excited to support a local business and I'm thrilled we now have Sweet Emotions in town for all my kid's candy needs. The party was fun and I truly appreciate the time you put into designing the favors and the personalized edible paper. The kids enjoyed tasting all the fun flavors of edible paint! Thanks again!

Barry was awesome. The kids made art on candy paper and then ate it. Not only was the activity itself absolutely perfect for a group of 9 year olds, but Barry added a lot of extra fun through the "contest" to guess candy flavors. As a bonus, he has kid-management skills-- and this was an energetic crowd. The candy cake was a big hit -- totally worth the price because it doubles as the party favors, and it has candles on it just like a regular cake. We couldn't have asked for a better party. Sweet Emotions is a class act.

Barry and Julia came to our house for the Candy Artist Studio party. We had twelve 6-year-old girls, and they ran the party like pros! They had all the children excited and involved in the games, songs, and the Candy Art Project. They kept the party running smoothly with all the children following their rules in an organized manner. They were wonderful at making my daughter (the birthday girl) feel extra special. It really was a dream party for these kids, full of candy and lots of fun. And I was able to relax and enjoy the party instead of running around crazy! We loved having Sweet Emotions come to our house and we may be having them come back when the second child turns five!

I want to thank you profusely for the beautiful Christmas gifts you made up for my board of directors. When I came in the shop, I had no idea what I was looking for. All I had was a price range. The one dozen "Presentations" you designed and crafted looked like so much more than the sum of their parts. Each was beautiful and unique. I was so pleased to give them. You were also kind enough to deliver them and they arrived well within my timeframe (even though I only gave you a couple days to accomplish the task). Usually I suffer through gift giving time, trying to decide what to give, how to give it, wrap it, present it.

Sweet Emotions was extremely helpful and went beyond my expectations by making up for my tardiness in getting information to them but still met my deadline of delivery before Christmas!

Overall, we were very happy with our experience with Sweet Emotions. The staff and store provided a positive event for our students and allowed them take a nice "break" from their stressful lives.

Loved the candy buffet!!!! They took my idea from a magazine clipping and expanded upon it to create something even more lovely. It was the highlight among my guests when they talked about the wedding... Very impressed :))

The Connecticut Commons RA staff and Hall Director wanted to give residents a treat in the beginning of finals week. After looking into some local businesses, we came across Sweet Emotions and thought that candy bags would be a sweet idea for our program. I got in touch with Barry who was very reasonable with prices and great to work with! We ordered 460 candy gift bags and were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the end product. Barry and his staff put together beautiful bags wrapped in ribbon and with more candy than I expected. Barry even hand delivered the bags to our area! Sweet Emotions was great to work with and the entire process was very simple and stress-free (which was a plus as we had placed the order in the crazy week before finals)! I would highly recommend working with Sweet Emotions!! (Hima M.--Candy Gift Bags)

I want to tell everyone about this place! When it first opened, I went on their website and ordered a themed candy package for my son who attends Graduate School in Nebraska. It arrived in one piece, presented beautifully, and included everything it said it would! It made our son's day and helped him survive finals week! Thank you! And I'll definitely be back!

Thanks so much for the beautiful Thanksgiving candy basket! I really appreciate that you sent a photo and worked within my price range! I will totally recommend you to everyone I know!

Thank you for the amazing job you did creating these Easter Baskets! Tomorrow's Egg Hunt is sure to be a great success with these wonderful prizes!
Anne - Candy Baskets
Barry arrived right on time and set everything up quickly and efficiently. He was very interactive with the birthday girl and with me. Once the party got underway, Barry was great with the girls! They all really enjoyed his MC skills. He was fun, upbeat and completely 'in the moment'. From a parent's perspective, there was no stress involved with having this party. I have paid for many, many birthday parties over the years and I definitely feel that Sweet Emotions Jewelry Party was great value for the price. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone for any future events.
Nancy - Birthday Party
Our experience with Sweet Emotions for our wedding was WONDERFUL. I was looking forward to our candy buffet since the moment we received our beautifully wrapped candy bags. Even just the packaging they send it in was wonderful. Everyone at Sweet Emotions was so helpful and kind. I wouldn't have been able to make our dream come true without all their help. Thanks!

SWEET EMOTIONS did an amazing job for our wedding. They created not only a delicious display of candy for our candy buffet, but one that was aesthetically pleasing as well. Every one of our guests felt like they were transported back in time to when they were children peering into their very first candy shop. The candy was perfect and the customer service was absolutely amazing. I would highly recommend SWEET EMOTIONS to anyone and everyone who has any candy needs or desires. Thank you so much!
