Stepping into the doorway of Sweet Tymes in Goshen is like stepping back in time. This old-fashioned sweet shop features an entire wall of retro jars filled with candy, one dating as far back as 1912. You will also find a big selection of mix and match candies with over 100 different varieties. Don’t see your favorite? They are also always open to finding new “old” candies for customers.
In 2016, David Seligmann, a local resident decided to start his own business and “do something different” after a long career in hospitality. He wanted something to make people smile and after carefully researching his options he decided on a candy store.
He may be the front man of this shop, but it’s a family affair. His daughter Annelise assists with the candy sampling and buying, and his wife Irene makes the fudge while still maintaining a full-time job.
They feature 24 fudge flavors on any given day and gluten-free fudge. Once a year they feature Cabernet Fudge and it’s that time of year!
A large part of the store’s business is preparing gift baskets for corporate clients, but the most important part of the business is making people smile!
For those who prefer something cold, Sweet Tymes also carries Jane’s Ice Cream and they whip up delicious old fashioned ice cream sodas and shakes .
David states “We’ve had to make some changes since Covid-19 darkened our doorsteps. We disinfect our store rigorously and we ensure our safety and yours by only allowing shipping, curbside/storefront pickup, or local delivery. We have reduced our hours. We wish you and your loved one’s health and safety. We look forward to serving you.”
During these difficult times he has a new motto “Because gifts go to places, we can’t.” Has it been awhile since you have had a smile on your face?
