Have you been asking yourself this question: Where can I buy sponge candy for the Holidays? Look no further - you have arrived at the Bella Mia Candy Store. We have been selling Premium Sponge Candy for years! Our retail store is located in North Buffalo, NY - in the heart of the Hertel Avenue business district. If you can't visit our store - then shopping at our web store is the next best thing.
We ship our across the United States to many people who have either lived in Buffalo, visited friends or family and know just how good it can be! Order some today - better yet, buy several one pound boxes and pass them around or put them on the table during your next picnic or family dinner!
Bella Mia Candy Store uses only the best Merckens chocolate. Other candy stores in Buffalo, NY may offer lower prices but they may also be using lower quality chocolate. When you buy our candy - you always get the best Sponge Candy money can buy! Our long-time customers know (and appreciate) what the expression "...you get what you pay for..." really means.
Depending on where you live, you may be calling Sponge Candy from Buffalo, NY something else - possibly hokey pokey, puff candy, cinder toffee, sponge toffee, seafoam, honeycomb or honeycomb toffee. Western New York Sponge Candy is covered in a delicious chocolate coating (choose from milk or dark chocolate). Eating sponge candy can be very unique. Small blocks might actually squeak when you bite into them, they might even 'fight' with you a little bit when you try to bite off just a corner - but you quickly discover and appreciate the unusual frothy texture. When the candy melts in your mouth, and believe me it won't take long...a subtle molasses flavor is released and Voila! you quickly appreciate how special our candy can be!
Feel free to experiment. Toss a few pieces into a bowl, then add your favorite ice cream. Or just pop a piece into your mouth, sit back and watch your favorite NFL team on TV. Our candy is very popular during the Christmas and Easter Holiday season. We know that for some people, Sponge Candy might be a new confectionary adventure - but for most of us who grew up in Buffalo or other parts of Western New York - it always brings back sweet memories of the Good Old days - when you would just walk into a candy store in Buffalo, NY - stroll over to the glass display case - eyeball the candy and go at it! Life is short, so enjoy our Premium Sponge candy today. It's a great Holiday dessert item to pass around the dinner table.
Weather Concerns – Please read the following information before you
order our Premium Sponge Candy
If your package
is delivered to your house on a sunny summer afternoon (that
would be 70 degrees and above) or is left sitting inside a hot porch or
left outside your front door – that could melt your candy!
Prolonged direct sunlight on your package, a
hot delivery van, a hot warehouse or any number of warm circumstances
more than it can take. Typical
weather conditions between early Fall or late Spring is NOT a problem
of our customers - but there are much warm(er) places and more sunshine
to our Buffalo, NY weather. We
appreciate the sunshine in
Bella Mia Candy suggests either that you avoid ordering during any unseasonable warm weather and try to “time” the arrival of your chocolate order during a forecast cool period. Also, consider a delivery to your work place as a good Plan “B”. Commercial, business and office addresses often get their packages delivered early in the day. Delivery to a business address helps your candy order get into “human hands” more quickly compared to sitting on your porch unattended while you are at work. If you’d like a quick 5 day forecast for any Zip Code, try www.weather.com and enter the destination Zip Code.
Even though we take
precautions when shipping your order, Bella Mia Candy
cannot control Mother Nature. Once
package leaves our location, we do NOT guarantee any chocolate
shipped to warm weather destinations, from melting. Please
note that we DO offer Kold Packs that
can be very helpful in keeping your order cool.
It helps – but is not always the perfect solution. Sorry, but we cannot
guarantee that your candy or chocolate items will always arrive intact.
We’re good but not perfect! Kold Packs will only
last a few days - so we will ship orders with Kold
Packs on Mondays or Tuesdays, depending on the destination state. In most cases, orders
placed later in the
week (the worst day you could pick would be Friday…) will not be
until the following Monday. Bella

Bella Mia Candy cannot issue refunds for melted candy. If you think the weather will be TOO HOT where you live, please delay your order until cooler temperatures arrive, or for those serious chocolate fanatics – just add more Kold Packs. For a couple of $$bucks, you can help us get your order delivered to you in good condition.
Most of our warm weather customers live in sunny Florida, Texas, Arizona and New Mexico but the Post Office does a pretty darn good job getting your order delivered when you use their Priority or Express mail services. Call us at 716.447.0922 if you have any questions about our shipping and refund policies for melted chocolates or need an estimate of when your order will arrive.
