I mean come on… everyone needs some Sponge Candy in their Easter Basket! 🙂
Sponge Candy is a favorite of Buffalonians. Travel the country and ask for sponge candy and most folks will not have a clue what you’re talking about.
It is in the same genre as toffee and can be found anywhere from Great Britain to Scotland to New Zealand, but in America, the main distributors are in Buffalo, Michigan and other locations around Lake Erie.
If you ask the folks at Platter’s Chocolates – they’ll tell you it was their invention, “In 1938, Carl Platter started a chocolate tradition in the basement of his home right over the Erie County border in North Tonawanda. Today they are located in the historical Wurlitzer Building where locals and tourist alike come year round to visit the “Platter’s Chocolate Factory” and watch production from many public-viewing areas.”
Fowler’s is another favorite – here is a link to their locations in East Aurora, Hamburg, Buffalo, Cheektowaga, Tonawanda and more.
If you’re in the South Buffalo area, stop by Park Edge Sweet Shoppe for some of their famous sponge candy!
Watson’s Chocolates has locations in Kenmore, Amherst, Buffalo, Orchard Park and more.
All of the shops ship all over the world! There is no better place than Buffalo, NY to get delicious sponge candy!
