Gillen’s Candies + Wine is the Specialty Store You’ll Want to Have in Your Back Pocket

By  | 

Located in the beautiful town of Blanco in the Texas Hill Country, Gillen’s Candies + Wine is tantamount to heaven on earth! They serve artisan confections from around the globe and feature local artisan products from the heart of Texas. Now on the cusp of their one-year anniversary, the shop that’s designed to provide a natural chocolate experience, bean to bar, wants to make you feel welcome at their upcoming celebratory event.

Scheduled for July 14 at the Gillen’s shop, visitors will be treated to more than your average anniversary party. Since establishing Gillen & Boney back in 1895, the Gillen family have been known as purveyors of fine chocolate and candies. Their reputation for excellence has been growing for over a century now. Steve Gillen, a descendant of the original owner, is continuing his family’s sweet legacy. The shop in Blanco features high-end products at reasonable prices, creating a one-of-a-kind tasting experience for their customers.

To celebrate these achievements, Gillen’s Candies + Wine will be offering their customers a special treat with live music, great food, and cool dessert treats (featuring many of the items and products that are sold at the shop). Representatives will be on hand to talk all-things wine and wine-related. Gillen’s now stocks half-pints, pints, and ice cream sandwiches from Lick Honest Ice Cream, which will most definitely be a summer treat you’ll want to try! Those of you who have yet to sample craft chocolate with wine are completely missing one of life’s simplest yet most divine pleasures! Gillen’s has the recipe for that irrefutable component of happiness, among other delicious recipes they provide. Representatives from Galilee Wines, Lost Draw Cellars, and Hops and Vines Distributing will also be on-hand to talk shop. Since no event such as this should go without a great soundtrack, guests can enjoy the musical stylings of the Styrofoam Gypsies as they sip and sample from 3 to 7 p.m.
