Plaza El Segundo – Hidden Gem, Newfound Sweets

See also

I always enjoying discovering new places to shop that are nearby and totally unexpected. I was recently invited to a Pre-Valentine’s event at Plaza El Segundo, and I was excited to see what I could find there!

First, I didn’t realize that Plaza El Segundo was in my back yard. Roughly 20 minutes away with no traffic, there is a beautiful plaza just South of LAX with a nice mix of stores, such as Whole Foods, Container Store, and Anthropologie. I arrived at the tail end of the event, but I was so glad I made it in time to mosey around SweetXO!

SweetXO is a sweet tooth’s dream – it’s a candy store, bake shop, ice cream and yogurt haven with a gift shop mixed in. The fun colors all throughout the store made this a definite keeper for me since bright hues always make my day. There was a pop of every color of the rainbow in the store and I commend SweetXO for taking it to the next level by keeping things fun and playful in this unique retail destination. And what a smart idea to have a lounge with white leather seating where you can get social and enjoy your goodies!

I tried a few flavors of ice cream and took home a special treat, SweetXO cake balls – I must say these are the BEST cake balls I have ever eaten! They were so decadent and moist that even though I wanted to eat 2 in one sitting I settled for 1 a night until they were gone (Had a pack of 4).

There was so much to take in that I definitely have to make a trip back to really enjoy it all, but the goodie bag I received helped give me an intro to what’s in store.

For all your sweet tooth needs, look no further than SweetXO – you will not regret it!
