If you're heading to Montville and love sweets, then you cannot miss this unique lolly shop. As you approach Candy Addictions you can smell the candy and see the rainbow colours spilling out the door. However, what makes this place so special is being able to watch the confectioners make real old fashioned candy before your very eyes - and being allowed to sample a bit too.
It is quite fascinating to observe how they create "personalised" candy, with the letters of corporations or soon to be married couples embedded in each and every sweet treat. They use an original candy recipe and create all the old fashioned favourites such as hand made bulls eyes, hum bugs, acid drops, fruit rock and rosy apples. Is your mouth watering yet?
The clever confectioners create sugary masterpieces from scratch every day between 10 am and 3pm and you can watch them stretch the hot candy over hooks and mold it into the letters of the alphabet - I wonder whose name they will write today? They have ten rainbow colours to choose from and twenty seven exotic flavours, including Cola, Tia Maria, Ginger and Watermelon - yum.
If you're a sweet tooth and have not yet visited Candy Addictions, well maybe it's time to plan a high priority trip to Montville's mountaintop lolly shop in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland (a bit over an hour north of Brisbane). Just be prepared to come home with a bag of rainbow coloured goodies and don't forget to share.
