aboutusAt Candy Atlas, we love to travel. And, we’re seriously into candy. All kinds, not just the expected.

Our endless curiosity about confectionery sometimes takes us out of the tourist hotspots and drops us into lovely neighborhoods and onto picturesque back roads we probably would never otherwise see. Other times, we discover pedestrian-friendly city streets dotted with galleries, cultural centers, and, of course, confectioners. We visit the places we’ve all heard about, as well as those off the beaten path, but we go through different doorways.

We believe candy is made not only of its raw ingredients but, also, of tradition, history, and heritage. Candy Atlas shines the spotlight on candy’s role as an important culinary element and features the stories of the remarkable people who create and supply one of life’s most joyous pleasures.

By sharing our sweet discoveries, we hope to inspire adventurers and armchair travelers alike to explore our world through candy. Where will candy take you?
