Six Treats to Try at Bellevue's New Lolli and Pops Store

Bellevue Square's new candy store offers posh new sweet treats
| Posted

The newly opened Lolli and Pops store at Bellevue Square is a candy confectionery even Willy Wonka would love. The San Francisco-based high-end candy shop, which has a slew of locations across the country including in the nearby Southcenter Mall and Alderwood Mall, has brought its sweet treats to the first floor of Bellevue's expansive shopping center, tucked between scoop shop Ben & Jerry's (how convenient) and fashion label BCBG Max Azria.

Inside, a giant golden gummy bear stands agains the wall watching over a flurry of rainbow treats: macarons, popcorn, chocolate bars and soda. The international candy—like Pocky from Asia and Milka chocolate from Europe—flavored honey, cotton candy and specialty truffles are enough to make even grownups giddy.

After a sugar-filled pitstop to Lolli and Pops, here are six top treats to satisfy your sweet tooth.

1. Breakfast in Bed Truffle Box, $35

This collection of chocolate truffles is a double indulgence of sugar and a lazy late morning, with flavors like mimosa, bacon, french toast and blueberry scone. 

2. Champagne Gummy Bears, $3.50 per 1/4 pound

Add some class to your sugar fix with booze-flavored gummy bears in rose and light champagne varieties. Scoop the bears into takeaway bags or give as a gift in a fancy jar.


3. Marshmallow Squares, $5

These brick-sized sugar squares put similar treats to shame with fancy mix-ins such as cookies, cereal, toasted coconut, sprinkles and popcorn.

4. Specialty Popcorn, $12

The snack traditionally relegated to movie theaters and your own couch comes in more creative concoctions like barbeque kettle corn and sriracha.


I no longer have to hoard my child's Pirates Booty, or the Trader Joe's version: World's Puffiest White Cheddar Corn Puffs.

September marks 25 years since Nirvana’s second studio album Nevermind crashed onto the music scene, defining grunge and solidifying Seattle as ground zero for the moody rock movement.

Almond butter is one of those things I can’t live without. Coffee. Red wine. Almond butter. Cheese. Probably in that order. But this stuff--this stuff--may just push red wine out of the No. 2 spot.

With a nod to the food-truck craze, Rachel Brandzel Weil launched her pop-up mobile paper, stationery and letter-writing business, The Letter Farmer, from a bright red truck in July.
