Sweets on High Street

There is a new place in town to get your chocolate fix: High Street Sweets. 


Lisa and Don Hay, proprietors of the Cothren House, have opened High Street Sweets just in time for this Saturday’s Gallery Night.


There is something to satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth, from high-end chocolates made by Gail Ambrosius and Sjolinds Chocolate House to penny candy.

They also have:

Sugar-free candy and gross candy

Sugar-free candy and gross candy.

Nolstalgia candy – including pop rocks, necklaces and candy cigarettes. 


Candy fashion


Candy art

An original painting by local artist and musician Rick Harris hangs above the mantel. See if you can recognize anyone!


And, if you’re being good and can resist the bacon-flavored chocolates, the “Beerific Taster’s Box” and, one of my favorites, Swedish fish, the shop also sells clementines in the fridge by the counter.

High Street Sweets is open daily from 1 to 6 p.m. It will be open until 9 p.m. Saturday for Gallery Night.

Mineral Point’s Gallery Night is 5 to 9 p.m., but most galleries open at 1o a.m.
