Susie’s South Forty Confections

How can you go wrong with the company chosen to provide the candy for George W. Bush’s inaugural ball? Popular items include Pecan Toffee (made without preservatives and mighty tasty straight from the freezer) and Texas Trash (a cereal, pretzel, pecan, creamy white chocolate mix featured on the Food Network program “Unwrapped”). Special for Valentine’s Day are whimsical candy apples decorated like animals.

Tony’s Old-Fashioned Bakery

When you’ve been in business for 25 years, you must be doing something right. Everything here is made from scratch, and customers rave about cinnamon rolls, apple turnovers, Danish pastries, gooey cream cheese bars, custom cakes, and a large selection of cookies. If the aroma when you walk in doesn’t make your mouth water, the traditional bakery cases filled with an assortment of goodies will.


Forget convention – doughnuts at this recently opened shop look like your childhood dreams come true. (Think bright doughnuts topped with Lucky Charms or Cinnamon Toast Crunch.) One Halloween offering included a brownie and a marshmallow ghost on top of a doughnut, so we can only guess what novel inventions await customers for Valentine’s Day.

Fountainville Creamery and Soda Fountain

Finally, whether you crave an old-fashioned date night or a fun family outing, sweet pleasures abound at this Midland treasure. Try its legendary Black Gold – black ice cream (the color is from food-grade activated charcoal) flavored with local honey and graham cracker. And don’t forget to take home some artisan fudge!
