The Main St. area in the town of Canandaigua in New York’s Finger Lakes region is thriving, thanks to numerous small businesses like Sweet Expressions, located at 169 S. Main St. in Canandaigua. To call this a candy store is an understatement – it’s confectionary bliss! Silky chocolates, bark of all kinds, truffles, sugar -free items and much more line the shelves. There is also a gourmet food section featuring foods from New York State and specifically the Finger Lakes region.
Sample one of their many homemade fudges (the Dreamsicle fudge is highly recommended), or taste one of their homemade barks (try the salted milk chocolate bark - instead of using sea salt, they used a locally-produced coarse-grain salt to keep with the local flavor). If you’re looking for something a little more indulgent, see if the chocolate grape clusters are available – smooth milk chocolate (signifying the wine region) filled with chocolate cabernet wine sauce from Arbor Hill Winery, located at the southern end of Canandaigua Lake.
