Travel and Leisure names Sweet Mickey’s one of best in USA


Ballard candy store Sweet Mickey’s (2230 NW 57th St) has been named as one of America’s best candy shops on the Travel and Leisure website.

Travel and Leisure has complied a list of the top 19 candy stores and owner Randy Brinker is thrilled for his store to be recognized.

Check out the blurb written about Sweet Mickey’s below:

“Come for the fudge. Stay for the memories,” proclaims owner Randy Brinker, who makes the confection in several decadent flavors. Sweet Mickey’s stays true to the Scandinavian roots of Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood with its impressive collection of licorice.

There are also more than 100 bulk gummies, jellies, saltwater taffy, and an ice cream counter in the mint-green store.

The name and logo pay homage to Brinker’s grandmother, who raised him.

Congratulations to the Brinker and the Sweet Mickey’s team!
