Schuyler Sweets and their Gluten Free Treats

Last Spring a new candy store opened in our little village of Schuylerville, Schuyler Sweets, owned by husband and wife Bob and Debbie Stickle.

When I first stopped in for Easter basket treats last year, the Stickles indicated that they were still researching which of their extensive selection of chocolates and candies were gluten-free. On this return trip, however, Bob was quick to point out which items were not gluten-free (mostly the caramels) and he even had a special batch of gluten-free chocolate-covered caramels in the candy case that had to come home with me for a husband treat in a sweet little beribboned white box. I also scooped up an assorted selection of their elegant little chocolates and creme filled dainties for a gift. Too bad I missed the Strawberry and Champagne Fudge that they had featured for Valentine's Day, which sounds really toothsome.

Interestingly, Bob is a diabetic, probably a rare trait in a chocolatier, but this also makes for a wide selection of sugar-free candies and chocolates.

Schuyler Sweets is located at 123 Broad Street in downtown Schuylerville, and is open Tuesday through Friday, 1-6, Saturday 10-5 and Sunday 11-4. You can also find them on the web if you are interested in ordering their candy through the mail or give them a call at (518) 695-4171.
