5 Things | Top Sweet Spots in Pittsburgh (Valentine's Day approved)

Valentine's Day is Winter's Halloween - you can totally get away with eating obnoxious amounts of sweets all in the name of being festive.  Sweets (much like love, so they say) is blind, it cares not if you're single or in a relationship, it just wants to be craved and consumed by you. No matter who your Valentine is this year - even if it's just lil ol' you (best Valentine ever) - treat them to something sweet and fun!  Here are 5 sweet spots in Pittsburgh to try out.  XoXo

Mon Aimee Chocolate

Get warm and snuggly with a cup of traditional hot chocolate from Mon Aimee Chocolat.  Located in the Strip District, Mon Aimee sells chocolates and other confections from around the world.  Perfect for the true candy connoissuer.

Edward Marc Chocolatier


For over 100 years, Edward Marc Chocolatier has been making mouth watering candy and desserts.  Their location in the South Side not only creates amazing truffles, caramel, and chocolates galore, but also acts as a classic milk shake bar. Mmmmmm!

Sinful Sweets

A bit newer to the candy scene in Pittsburgh, Sinful Sweets puts a modern twist on classic goodies.  Their Downtown location features unique sweets not found anywhere else, think: caramel bacon turtles, dark chocolate and sea salt apples, or dark chocolate wasabi bark.  This is for the fearless candy lover who is willing to try anything once.

Spun Sugars

What says young love nostalgia more than a sweet, sticky, pastel cloud of yummy cotton candy?  Spun Sugars takes theirs to the next level by making their 100 calories confection with no preservatives, gluten free and vegan!  Like a day at the state fair but without the guilt (and no spinny, pukey rides).

Planning a quiet movie night with your sweetie?  Amp up the snack element with gourmet popcorn from The Pittsburgh Popcorn Company.  With five locations (Downtown, Strip District, Oakland, South Hills, and Ross Park), the variety of flavors never ends with their weekly changing menu of new and exotic flavors.  Next week, the Downtown location will feature hot chili chocolate, cinnamon toast, SW cheddar, and Sour cream n' onion.  Surprise your Valentine with a tub full of yummy local popcorn.
