Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth Locally

As the region anxiously awaits the full reopening of all of our favorite businesses, there’s one sweet way to deal with all that stress! Takeout and delivery have become staples of all of our diets, but restaurants aren’t only serving apps and entrees—don’t forget about dessert! And right near your Royal Athena apartment, there are many shops that specialize in sweet treats. Since June is the host of a number of special “holidays” celebrating all things sugar—with specific days for donuts, chocolate ice cream, smoothies and chocolate pudding all this month—what better reason to indulge, all while supporting local businesses?


One great spot to do just that is at The Sweet Trading Company. While the shop’s retail location, a few minutes from your Royal Athena apartment is temporarily closed, it is offering free delivery—so you can enjoy all of your favorite treats without even having to leave the comfort of home!


The nearly 10-year-old business grew out of the owner’s very own kitchen in nearby Manayunk and has now evolved into one of the area’s most popular sweets shops. The Sweet Trading Company specializes in gourmet, handmade Belgian chocolates—though the full menu offers something for all types of sweet tooth.


If you’re looking for something crispy, try the barks, which come in variations like rice krispy or cookies and cream. Sink your teeth into truffle flavors like espresso, peanut butter or pumpkin spice, or go nostalgic with the gummy bears, candy corn and more. The shop handcrafts all treats on site, and also offers specialty items like homemade marshmallows, dipped fruits and chocolate lollipops. .


We’ll all be back into the swing of things soon, but until then, take a little time to treat yourself!
