At Lola’s Sugar Rush we love a good party! I don’t know what it is about spring and summer that makes us all a bit giddy and ready to play, but the fever has definitely hit us here on Main Street in historic downtown Littleton.
Lola’s Sugar Rush Celebrates Three Sweet Years in Business with a Gummy Bear Flash Mob!
We kicked off the season with a giant birthday bash, or should I say “Bear-thday Bash here at the shop. It was an absolute Gummi Bear extravaganza – at the center of it all was our 27-pound Gummy Bear (5,000 times larger than a regular gummy bear. A whopping 32,000 calories total and 265 snack-size pieces when all cut-up!) Sylvia Rose and her sweet daughter were the lucky winners from the drawing for the Big Daddy of Gummy Bears. Congrats ladies!
The best part of the celebration was the Gummy Bear Flash Mob. More than 50 people simultaneously began dancing like kids in a candy store to the Gummy Bear Song. I even managed to persuade our shop manager, Mary Koop to break-it down! Check it out the video on YouTube!
Coming-up — Get Wild on Main Street! Food. Fun. Music. Fireworks!
Be sure to join us and hundreds others on June 9th for our 8th Annual Wild on Main Street Block Party. This celebration is the perfect way to kick-off your summer. There will be six stages of live music and entertainment, 30 food vendors, and booths featuring downtown Littleton’s finest boutiques and restaurants (and of course the sweetest place in town!) There will also be 200 classic cars and antique fire trucks on display. Did I mention this brilliant event is capped off by two stunning fireworks displays at 9pm and 10:45pm.
Bring your family, your friends, your neighbors and even a total stranger or two down to Historic Downtown Littleton and see what being a part of a community is all about.
Tickets will be required to purchase food items. Tickets will be on sale the day of the event (10 for $10). Presale tickets (which include a complimentary drink ticket) are available Friday, May 18th through Friday, June 8th at all downtown Littleton merchants and HDLM members.
Lola’s Sugar Rush Can’t Mask Our Pride for The Denver Hospice
Lola’s Sugar Rush is proud to say we were a contributing sponsor of this year’s Club Mask Party to benefit The Denver Hospice. In addition to creating a mask for this year’s Mask Project Auction, we also hosted Lola’s Sugar Rush Candy Bar & Lounge at the Club Mask Party held on May 12th. Our “bar” featured fun specialty drinks and Sugar Babes handed out wax lips, candy bracelets and bubble gum cigars to the guests. We made tons of new friends and connected with old buddies. Check-out our photos of the event on our Facebook Page.
It’s never too late to help The Denver Hospice. If you’d like to donate to this extraordinary organization that supports friends and families at their greatest hours of need click here: The Denver Hospice.
Fun New Sweet Candy Coming Soon!
Our manager, Mary Koop and I made our annual pilgrimage to the Sweets and Snacks Expo held in Chicago. Imagine if you will, 3+ acres of candy and snacks with 570 exhibiting companies from around the globe all in one place! Oh did we find some exciting sweet treats (and some of your childhood favorites to bring back to the Sugar Rush.)
I Scream, You Scream – We all Scream for Magill’s Ice Cream!
I don’t know about you, but I love ice cream! We now carry locally owned and family operated Magill’s Ice Cream. Come try our eight yummy flavors of this mouthwatering, homemade, treat. Naturally, we always carry Lola’s Sugar Rush Signature Flavors: Chocolate, Vanilla and Strawberry! Yum-Oh!
My Girls and I Hit the Sweet Streets of New York City
Just wanted to share one last thing – Before the summer rush begins, I was fortunate enough to take a fun, extended weekend trip with my daughter, my soon to be daughter-in-law and my dear niece. What a hoot! We left no candy shop or hot dessert spot unturned. Our faves were FAO Schwartz’s Schweet Shop, Dylan’s Candy Bar and world famous Serendipity.
The best part of the trip? Spending precious hours, filled with smiles and laughter with my “girls.” I hope you and your family and friends are able to steal some time-off together this summer. Stop by and share with us too!
