Where to Get Halloween Treats for Adults in Calgary

Tricks may be for kids, but treats are for all: If you’re too old to go door-to-door on Halloween, get some chocolate or candy at these local shops.

Chocolatier Anne Sellmer’s new shop in East Village’s Hillier Block is where she and her team whip up bonbons, bars and bark, including the beloved variety that sees milk or dark chocolate flecked with popping candy and dotted with sweet and sour gummies.

Find everything from throwback candy brands (Lemonhead and Charleston Chew) to international imports, such as Cadbury Curly Wurly by way of the U.K., at this retro candy shop. It even has a 1950s soda fountain, so you can sip on a float while you browse.

The Chocolate Lab

You won’t give Halloween mini-bars another look after feasting your eyes on The Chocolate Lab’s bonbons. From Starry Night, which is dark blue with gold and white specks and filled with dark chocolate ganache, to the swirl of pastel pinks that is Ruby Rhubarb, they’re almost too pretty to eat.

Step back in time at the Claresholm General Store, where old-fashioned jars are filled with rock candy, candy sticks and more. Or pop into Harvey’s Confectionary, outside the park gates, to stock up on fudge and homemade chocolates.
