I love Buffett's because it is local, but also because they carry imaginative, seasonal sweets. At Valentine's, Christmas, Halloween and Easter, they make fresh candies to tempt every kind of taste, from chocolate graham crackers to jelly beans. For the kids, it's a glorious slice of heaven (imagine Charlie in the chocolate factory.) It's a great place to pick up an affordble gift. They also carry flavored and caramelized popcorn from the Popcorn Cannery, another local favorite.
But for all the aisles of beautiful, luscious chocolates and cased sweets, Buffett's is best known for their pinon nut candies. There is a real difference between pine nuts and pinons, as those in Albuquerque know, and the pinon candies at Buffett's are a taste all their own. The sweet and salty combination has made this little candy store a repeat destination for customers both local and worldwide. Buffett's ships for those who need to order online, but if you're in town, stop by the giant candy cane and get your taste of a candy found only in the southwest.
