Inside Merritt Movie Experts you'll find The Sweet Spot. All the fudge, savory and candied popcorn are made right in The Sweet Spot. Plus there is hard ice cream, pop and and other treats to satisfy you snack cravings.
May 2016 we launched The Sweet Spot in Merritt Movie Experts. For several years Merritt Movie Experts has served up ice-cream, with it growing a little bit each year. We decided to expand and to do something to make the treats a little less seasonal. After months of searching, deciding, debating and a little bit of fate stepping in, we bought the equipment to make our own fudge and popcorn. Add one major renovation and The Sweet Spot was born. In December 2017, we had to move from our old location to our new one. This meant revamping our display layouts and kitchen. We are hoping it will be a more efficient system but it will take a summer season to find that out.
It's a lot of work but we are proud of what we've done so far and looking forward to growing into you favourite place for treats. You can follow what is going on with The Sweet Spot in Merritt Movie Experts by liking them on face book.
What's the Scoop
We have Foothills hard ice cream available to scoop all year. We make our own fudge waffle cones. We also offer ice-cream floats and bowls of ice-cream. So if you don't like a cone you have a choice.
Mother's Day 2016 weekend we started making fudge in store. We are using Calico Fudge's recipes which kettle fudge is made with real butter and cream. We also use real fruit in many of our fudges. As the head cook I aim to make decadent fudges. If you're going to have a treat, enjoy a real treat.
Well if ice-cream and fudge aren't you thing, we also have fancy popcorn. Right in store we are making candied, savory and kettle corns. As well as our yummy theater popcorn.
Savory popcorn are our kettle popped corn tumbled with seasonings and / or liquid cheese. Savory types are low in sugar but higher in salt.
Candied popcorn are also our kettle popped corn, coated with liquid sugar based flavourings. Candied types are low in salt but higher in sugar.
Kettle corns are in the middle having less sugar then a candied and less salt then a savory. They are also easy to make in vegan version. So far we have figured out a few recepies of kettle corns including Sweet & Salty, 5 Alarm, and Latte.
