Sweet Dreams Are Made of These

October 30, 2017

Residents of ROSS’ apartments for college students know you’re never too old to celebrate Halloween. The trick is to know where the treats are!

Let’s face it: unless you’re seriously into cosplay, you’re too mature, too dignified to dress up like the Hulk and demand candy from total strangers. No, you’re beyond that now, living in your own off-campus apartment in Silver Spring, Laurel or College Park, keeping up with classes and managing your time. Still, there’s a sweet tooth in you that demands to be satisfied. And that’s when you really appreciate your off-campus apartment‘s location – just a few minutes away from all of metro DC’s myriad of shopping, dining and entertainment venues.

Getting back to the subject at hand, there are plenty of places to find the confections of your affections in the area. Here are five of the best:

 

THE CANDY MAN

“The Candy Man has an incredible selection of bulk and wrapped candy, chocolate dipped pretzels and fruits, nuts, dried fruits, and gourmet products. Our store is filled with specialty food items and packaging that change with the seasons…The Candy Man is the place for all your candy and gift giving needs.”

 

SUGARFINA BETHESDA

“We traveled the world to meet with artisan candymakers and taste-tested thousands of candies in our search to find the best of the best. Sugarfina is the candy store [you’ve] always dreamed of, a chic boutique filled with delicious, gourmet sweets that are just as beautiful to look at as they are to taste.”

 

IT’SUGAR

“As the place where candy-obsessed come to indulge in the sights, smells and tastes of their favorite sweets and get immersed in the brand’s irreverent voice and fun-loving nature, IT’SUGAR is a different kind of specialty store…dedicated to bringing out the child in every adult.”

 

CHOCOLATE CHOCOLATE

“Adorable little chocolate shop. The staff immediately said hello and welcome when I walked in and I was so excited to see that they not only had chocolate but also those tub-and-scooper candy cases. One of my fave things as a kid was those candy stores where you can scoop a few of every candy into your bag for a few bucks.”

 

THE CHOCOLATE HOUSE

“Located in the Dupont Circle neighborhood of Washington, DC The Chocolate House is a tasting room and boutique store where you can experience over 300 unique chocolate bars and confections from artisan chocolate makers and chocolatiers from all corners of the world.”

 

So jump for jelly beans, cheer for chocolate, go ga-ga for Gummi critters, they’re all within easy reach of ROSS’ affordable apartments for college students in Laurel, College Park and Silver Spring. Treat yourself to a tour of one today!
