Founded in Montreal in 2014 by Sarah Segal, SQUISH is the first gourmet candy store in North America that focuses on specialized gummies and candies. After noticing a void in the market for more complex candy flavours, Segal drew from her experience as chief tea developer and head of product development at David’s Tea to bring SQUISH to life. With a more than 100 different gummies, SQUISH has flavour to match any mood: fruity, intense, decadent, calm or cocktail.

“We are thrilled to bring SQUISH’s unique collection of flavours to the Toronto market,” said Sarah Segal. “Our team works hard to elevate the candy experience and we’re excited to share our SQUISH philosophy with such a celebrated culinary city.”

“We are always looking for new and exciting brands to offer our customers,” said Evelyn Reynolds, SVP, license, Hudson’s Bay. “SQUISH is such a fun shopping experience offering a new twist on traditional candies, making it a perfect addition to our Queen Street store.”

This song sums up what I’m thinking right now…

Ensuring all tastes and dietary preferences are being met, SQUISH’s nutritional icons help guide candy lovers through a variety of options, including vegetarian, vegan, no artificial flavours and colours, gluten-free, Kosher, real fruit extracts, GMO-free, dairy-free, fat-free, certified organic and certified nut-free.
