A gourmet candy store is going to be opening soon in Coralville! According to Coral Ridge Mall's website, Lolli & Pops is in the process of moving into the mall.

Lolli & Pops is a San Francisco-based candy chain that first launched back in 2012. According to their LinkedIn profile, their mission is to "create experiences that wow our guests by offering bits of optimism along the way." The page reads:

"Our candies and chocolates and treats come with positive affirmations, encouraging bits of bravery, strength, hope, kindness, and other powerful words we need to hear each day. Generosity is essential to who we are, and we’re committed to delivering generous gestures and good surprises to each and every one of our clients, one ooey gooey bit at a time."

Lolli & Pops offers a HUGE variety of candy and chocolate, including international and retro options. Guests can try products from Asia, Europe, and Mexico, as well nostalgic candies from the early 1900s through the 1990s. If you're looking for organic, vegan, or sugar-free candy, the shop has options for you, too! Other products listed online include macarons, chocolate-covered strawberries, gummies, fudge, sour candy, truffles, caramel corn, and, of course, lollipops. There's also a whole wall of cotton candy with different flavors!

If you're looking for a gift for a special occasion, there are lots of gift boxes and tins available for purchase, as well. You can check out a list of all their products HERE.

The Coralville location of Lolli & Pops will be the second in the state of Iowa. The other location is at the Jordan Creek Town Center in Des Moines. Coral Ridge Mall is unsure of the exact opening date for Lolli & Pops, but they say it should be opening soon!
