Creekside Gourmet opens in the Town of Tonawanda

TONAWANDA: Sheridan Drive store offers culinary treats, supplies.

(Continued)

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — The store sells a wide variety of items from the sweet to the savory — gumballs and candy in every color of the rainbow (very popular for wedding reception candy buffets) are near concession candy classics and the downright quirky, such as bacon-, pickle- or wasabi-flavored candy canes. Buffalo-oriented items such as Anchor Bar wing sauce are stocked, as are nostalgia-based items such as Jiffy Pop popcorn, Smith Bros. cough drops and gift baskets in every possible theme.

One side of the store is filled with candy-making supplies such as molds, fillings, equipment and a large range of Merken’s chocolate wafers. The store’s concession roots are visible in popcorn-making supplies (including flavorings such as strawberry shortcake), cotton candy supplies and snow-cone supplies.

In addition to those items, the company has an offsite production facility that produces items under its own label. The facility makes jams and jellies, the popular chocolate-laced popcorn, candy-coated popcorn in flavors as cranberry, creamsicle and pomegranate, and their own line of dipping oils, barbecue sauces, hot sauce and mustards.
