Top 5 Places Across the Country to Get Halloween Candy

Written by Deepi Harish

It’s that time of year again – when the air gets crisp, our wardrobe changes to deep warm hues, pumpkin spice brews and baked goods are featured at every café, and shopping for Halloween candy is upon us.

Spooky season is here, and we hunted down some of the best places across Canada to stock up on Halloween candy to give away to trick-or-treaters or keep for yourself, no judgement here.

Squish (Multiple Locations Across Canada)

Founded in Montreal in 2014, Squish became North America’s first artisanal candy store that specializes in over 100 flavours of gourmet gummies. They carry classic, vegetarian (gelatin-free) and vegan (free of gelatin, dairy, honey and beeswax) gummies, making them dietary restrictive friendly. We also love that Squish uses real fruits, spices and herbs in their candy. For Halloween, Squish has created a host of flavours and shapes that are individually wrapped and ready to dole out.

Oscar (Montreal)

This is a classic confectionary in Montreal and might even be one of the oldest candy shops in the city, since it opened in 1929. Oscar has isles and isles of colourful candy, chocolate, cookies and nuts in bulk, so you can make your own little packages for Halloween. They also carry loads of wrapped candies and chocolate bars from both local and international brands. 

Address: 6356 Rue St-Hubert, Montréal, QC H2S 2M2

Gummi Boutique (Multiple Locations In Alberta)

Gummi Boutique quickly became Calgary’s premier candy store because of their candy selection from around the world. They carry sweet treats from the 1920’s (such as Double Bubble gum), along with candies from all the other decades leading up to present day. If you’re unable to make it to their store locations, they offer contactless delivery within Calgary and Airdrie. For orders outside of their delivery zone, they ship throughout Canada and worldwide. Gummi Boutique also offers a variety of products that are gluten-free, nut-free, gelatin-free, sugar-free, halal, kosher, vegan and more.
