There’s a brand new shop that just opened in Barrington this weekend that stocks its shelves with sugar and sweets.  Take one step inside and, trust me, you’ll feel just like a kid in a candy shop.

Sweet Spot Candy Shop in Barrington, Illinois

Five year old Aiden Krumpett from Lake Barrington walked into the brand new Sweet Spot candy shop today and his eyes lit up like bottle rockets. A real life Charlie Bucket, he darted from shelf to shelf on the hunt for Wonka Bars.

Their sweet location is easy to spot, right at Lake Cook Road and Hager.  Their swirling candy stick sign out front might as well read “Calling all Kids”.  And no need to worry about scary singing Oompa Loompas.  You’ll only find friendly folks inside to help with your shopping.  Whether it’s retro sweets or the latest candy craze, if you want it, store manager Doreen Thomas says they’ll do their best to track it down, tout suite.

The Sweet Spot candy shop at 102 S. Hager in Barrington is open from Monday through Saturday from 11AM to 7PM and from 12PM to 5PM on Sundays. You can reach them by phone at 847-381-2320.

  1. I would like to bring some seniors to your candy store as an outing.

    I see you have steps at the front door. Does this mean no scooters?

Hi! 😁 Today's Word of the Day is 汉语 hàn yǔ -- literally "Han Language."

So, we're backtracking... or maybe just following the path of yesterday's post 😂. Either way, it might behoove you to know the context of this word.

The 汉 hàn in 汉语 refers to the Han ethnic group -- the largest of the 56 (government-proclaimed) Chinese ethnic groups. Some data have indicated that Han people comprise 90% or more of the population. So, it's unsurprising that this large group has gotten to name one of the most common terms for Mandarin. (Remember, Mandarin is what we learn at BHS and is the official language of China. There are other dialects/languages in existence.)

Anyhoo, the point is that if one is going to be referring to Mandarn Chinese as a language, it wouldn't hurt to know how to say it two ways! 🙃

普通话 and 汉语 can be used in most of the same contexts -- 汉语 might be a little less eloquent, but you won't get in trouble for using either. 🙂
