The Who, What, Where, and Why!

Who We Are

Four friends who love to have fun, and share that with as many people as possible. Hockey, skateboarding, traveling the world - we’ve had a lifetime of fun together, and now just seemed like the right time to take that next step and start a couple of businesses. We recently opened our second business and know that you will love it as much as we do. Really, it’s candy, what’s not to love? Actually, it’s more than just candy. We spend our free time hunting down the craziest snacks we can find and have everything from chocolates, gummies, and cool cereals, to exotic candy, chips, soda, and other rare drinks.


Why We Started Twirl Exotics

Having traveled all over the world, we always find the coolest candy and drinks to try! We used to pack some into our bags to bring home and share with family and friends, but we wanted to do more. We wanted to be able to offer the most exotic and rare snacks to all Canadians! Just like that, Twirl was born. Every week we bring in new items, and we are still traveling and searching for new snacks to keep your palette guessing! We also ask all our friends to bring us back some snacks from their travels so we can see if they’re worth bringing to the store.


What Makes Us Different

Twirl is more than just a candy store. As with any good business, the customer comes first. At Twirl, we like to take everything to the next level, including customer service! When you walk through the doors, you’re one of us. We love to hang out with our customers, and that’s exactly what we do. Both our businesses are on the corner of Bronson and Arlington so we’re always around and hanging out. You’ll want to stay and hang out for a while as you explore all of the hidden gems around the store. There’s something for everyone here, and you might just have to stay awhile to find it. When you’re ready to check out, we are most likely sending you home with our favorite extra goodies, stickers, and more!

The variety in our shop makes us way different than any other candy store in Canada because we gather rare snacks from all over the world and bring them together for one fun shopping experience. For example, In Canada, we have only a few varieties of Kit Kat bars. In Japan, however, they have created over 50 varieties! Come in and try a Cheesecake Kit Kat bar, or maybe the Blueberry muffin Kit Kat. Don’t knock it ‘till you try it, we only bring in candies we love and know you will too.


What Can You Find in the Shop?

Everything you need for a good time, where we promise that everything is delicious and can guarantee we’ll show you something new! You’ll find a very laid back vibe with snacks and rare drinks for every mood, and staff that love to have fun and satisfy snacky cravings. 


Let’s take a quick peek at the shelves. Do you prefer sour candy? Chocolate? Maybe you are more of a salty snack person. Whatever you like, you’ll find it here, and probably find some new things to love along the way.


 Have you ever heard of  Peach Crush Soda before? How about Cherry Dr. Pepper Dessert Topping?


Straight from Indonesia, we even have the brand new Fizzy Orange Oreos!  Didn’t think an Orange Oreo could taste that good!


Are you brave enough to try the World’s Spiciest Gummy Bear?


What do you get for the person who has everything?  We bet they don’t have a 5 pound bubblegum flavored Gummy Bear, guaranteed to satisfy any sweet tooth and be the most talked about gift at any party!


Can you handle sour candy? We’ve got it all, from Warheads Ooze Chewz to Warheads soda and Toxic Waste sour Smog Balls.


Our goal is to bring you the craziest, out-of-this-world snacks from all over the globe, and we have fun doing it! We are constantly searching far and wide to broaden your snack palette and keep you guessing.


And while sweets are what we do, we bring in sugar-free varieties and plenty of salty snacks too, so that there really is something for everyone.
