Just about five months ago we received a call from FedEx headquarters. On the other end of the phone was a team of folks congratulating us as winners of a FedEx Small Business Grant. We were literally jumping up and down, knowing this was going to change our business in so many ways.

A Real Treat was born to bring you a new, better candy store. While we wish we could bring the candy store to everyone, we quickly realized we needed to build you an online shop that could match the experience you would have in our Los Angeles store. 

Thanks to your support and the generous grant from FedEx, we are truly filled with pride as we bring you A Real Treat's online store. Shop for your favorite sweets, discover some new treats and share them with your family and friends. We can't wait to hear from you!

P.S. We're not done yet. We are hard at work on a new Santa Monica location, complete with a candy kitchen and birthday party packages! Stay tuned for more news on our opening date - sweet!


There have been so many incredible moments since we opened A Real Treat Candy Boutique almost five months ago. Picking up the phone to a conference room full of FedEx folks today is definitely one of them!

We have been chosen as a winner in the FedEx Small Business Grant Contest!!! Out of 5,000 companies, we are one of ten winning companies chosen and that is due in large part to your support. We can’t wait to see what is next and continue to share our journey with you.

Thank you for really liking us! If you haven’t done so already, be sure to sign up for the newsletter so we can keep you up to date on when the online store will launch.
