New candy shop in Kettering to host grand opening next week


A candy shop called La Puf Sweets will host a grand opening from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Dec. 9 at its new retail storefront at 2289 Patterson Road in Kettering.

La Puf Sweets is the brainchild of Karalee Parlin of Dayton, who started doing cotton-candy catering last year.

“It’s always been a dream of mine to own a candy store,” Parlin said.

For her cotton candy, Parlin makes her own flavored sugars, with non-traditional varieties such as caramel, pumpkin, coconut and Champagne.

The new store also will focus on hard candies, and gummy-style candies, and will also sell party supplies, Parlin said. She is considering branching out into chocolates in the future.

The grand opening will feature free cotton candy, free popcorn and a gift-basket raffle. The first 25 customers through the door will receive a grab-bag of items, Parlin said.

Hours going forward from next week’s grand opening will be 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, and by appointment on Sunday and Monday. For more information, check out the La Puf Sweets Facebook page at www.facebook.com/lapufsweets.
