A Sweet New Store On Kalakaua
With a passion for creating unique gifts for every occasion, Pei Tung Wu, owner of the recently opened CandyIncredible shop on Kalakaua Avenue, is calling all chocoholics and candy fanatics to her sweet tooth paradise.
“The concept of the business is a wholesale chocolate, confectionery and candy store,” Wu says. “People can expect an intimate and relaxed lounge environment when they come to our store. They can enjoy free samples of chocolate from around the world while drinking coffee that was grown on the North Shore and in Kona on the Big Island. We cater to all types of customers who love chocolates, candy, coffee and cookies.”
CandyIncredible offers a multitude of options to satisfy any craving, be it well-known European chocolates, including Godiva, Ritter Sport, Loacker, Toblerone, Werther’s and Milka brands, or classic treats such as Red Vines, Blow Pops, Dubble Bubble, Tootsie Roll, Jelly Belly and Mike and Ike, to name a few. Wu and her staff even sell their own roasted Kona coffee, along with chocolate-covered Kona coffee beans and Big Island-grown chocolatecovered macadamia nuts.
Chocolates and candies range from 25 cents to $15, and custom-made gift baskets start at $15.
“What makes my business so unique is that our gift baskets come with extra surprises and a colorful handmade bow,” Wu states. “I wanted to create customizable gift baskets that were appealing, but also offered a great value with high-quality products.”
CandyIncredible is already taking orders for holiday baskets, and is in the process of putting the finishing touches on an upcoming grand opening later this month.
“My goal is to introduce more confections from around the world to Hawaii,” Wu states proudly. “I’m a sponsor and participant of Team Jet Hawaii, which is a triathlon training group year-round, so I would also like to introduce more healthy products such as Clif Bars, Luna, Build as well as its new Clif Crunch Granola Bars.”
For Wu, seeing her customers appreciate her merchandise is a reward in itself. It’s her primary goal to provide her patrons with the best-quality sweets, while also giving them the opportunity to sample a little bit of everything. The most challenging part of entrepreneurship, she says, is gaining that initial customer base and reaching out to potential customers.
It’s sure to be one incredible journey for Wu, and a sweet one at that!
