Willy Wonka has nothing on Ira Gutner. In 1994, the original founder of Samuel’s Sweet Shop left the Big Apple to open a boutique candy and coffee shop. After his sudden passing in 2014, the community was heartbroken as the sweet destination was on the verge of closing. It was three local families who knew and loved the candy man that stepped in to buy the shop. Although the name has changed since Gutner’s days, the commitment to providing Valleyites with the finest sweets is still a priority. This candy haven dishes out everything from chocolates to sandwiches, but it’s the frozen cappuccino that has us daydreaming. The caffeinated concoction is a blend of dark roast coffee, chocolate, and a non-dairy soy-based creamer. What makes it different from all its other “frozen cappy” counterparts? The beverage is not blended, but rather served from a frozen Margarita machine.
