Candy Shop Name - HELP
So I've decided to close down my soap shop and start up a candy shop in its place.
The only problem is... I don't know what to name the candy shop that sounds good.
I will be making lollipops, hard candies, mints, chocolates, and possibly taffies and chews. All of my ingredients are natural, and there won't be any artificial flavors or dyes... there won't even be corn syrup! I guess you could almost call it "health candy" lol.
I'm trying to think of names with alliteration (repeating the same letter sound, like "always alarm all the alligators"). I used to live in PA which would make "Sylvania Sweets" perfect, but now I'm living in Minnesota/South Dakota so I need a kitschy Midwest-appropriate name. I was thinking "Way Up North Chocs & Lollies" as inspired by an Aussie friend of mine, but I was thinking something with my name (Monica) or nickname (Mona) might be neat. (However, in the town I live in in SD, there's a place called Cakes by Monica and I don't want to be confused for her.)
I asked my friends on FB for help, but most of them are guys who just like joking around for the lols.
Any ideas? I'm hoping to open up shop in mid-to-late January.
Firstly- so excited for you! I love candy! I hope it all pans out well for you and cant wait to see some examples in your new projects.
Second- seeing as its "healthy sweets" what about calling them "whole sweets" or "Whole candy" or something like that? Cos they're wholesome?
Hm... Yeah, that might work.
I posted a picture of sea glass that I made, but I made it with corn syrup to test a recipe before I buy golden syrup. I'm going to spend the next few weeks experimenting with different recipes and maybe make up some of my own.
I'm super excited, too. I think my biggest challenge will be finding or making chocolate that's all-natural. I may use carob for some things, too. Just all depends, I guess.
Yay for you! I can't wait to see what you come up with!
Mid-West Monica's Sweet Tooth (similiar to Andrea's suggestion)
Monica's Sweet Moments
ABC Candy (ABC being an acronym - such as three item you are selling or desciption)
Or how about choosing something that interests you or that you like:
History in the Making: The Perfect Candy (this sounds more like a book title)
Purple Dice Candy and Sweets
I think you want to keep it simple and catchy. Something that someone will remember - in case they forget to bookmark the page. (which I do a lot!)
Hm, well, I like those suggestions. I think I'm going to go for a subtle chemistry approach by calling it Monica's/Mona's Smart Sweets. (Maybe Smart Candies.)
...since all candy making really is is the applied chemistry using the knowledge of the thermodynamics of organic compounds. lol
They're also a "smart" choice because there won't be any HFCS.
So have you opened it yet because it has been seven months now I bet you have become successful!
