“Hands Down - The Best!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

This is a MUST if you are in Canandaigua or just passing through!!!! The owner was there that day that we visited. She is so nice and even explained her process for making chocolates and the difference in the varieties. A great feature is that this shop also offers sugar free candy (which is hard to come by), jams, dips, and mixes. All are delicious! The store also has an area for products were are local, great souvenirs and a wonderful way to support local shops. One of the best parts is the free samples, a nice way to try something if you are unsure. I never knew that fudge came in so many different flavors until I came here. I will be back.

“Best candy ever!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2014

You must go to this store if you are ever in Downtown, Canandaigua! Not just candy but also things like jams and jellies and mustard dips etc.! Plus, they have samples! You will fall in love with this candy shop because it is like no other.

“Best chocolates and fudge, hands down!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2013

The first time I went into Sweet Expressions, I was in awe by the amount of hand made chocolates and flavors of fudge. Plus, there is a special area for local made products as well. I knew I would be back, and I was! Each time I went in the level of hospitality was great and the sweets we ate were impeccable! Took some fudge back home for my father to try and he made me promise to bring more next time we visited! I would highly advise visiting this sweet little shop next time you're in town!
