Candy Store with Vegan Sweets

Sweet Pete’s in Jacksonville, Fla., opens.

A new candy store has come to Jacksonville, Fla., that carries natural options for vegans. Peter Behringer, who until recently ran Peterbrooke Chocolatier, and his wife Allison opened Sweet Pete’s July 9 in Jacksonville. The couple was inspired to create candy and chocolate that was beyond standard chocolate and that contained more pure ingredients. With that, Allison says, naturally came many vegan options. Thus far, Allison says, the response has been great, and even better than they expected. Their most popular vegan option is the vegan sundae, which is made of soy ice cream, vegan caramel, and soy whip. In the future, the Behringers hope to expand to wholesale markets.
