Photos: A Journey Through San Ramon’s New Miette Bakery

A sprinkle of sweetness, a dash of delight, and a handful of heavenly flavors; step into the world of Miette Bakery and embark on a delectable journey, one snapshot at a time.

This exclusive photo essay offers a tour through the vibrant lanes of Miette, where bins of saltwater taffy contend with classic candies for kids and imported European treats – each wrapped in magic, all served with love.

The journey begins with the colorful bins of saltwater taffy, an enticing sight to behold. Reminiscent of pebbled seashores and the whispering waves, these candy bins offer a spectrum of pastel hues, each color corresponding to a uniquely delightful flavor.

Saltwater taffy, originally a staple of Atlantic City boardwalks, has found a new home here at Miette. A twist, a pull, a bite, and your taste buds are on a sweet trip down memory lane.

Next, we venture into the charming section that transports us back to the pure, innocent joy of childhood – the classic candies for kids.

An entire generation’s memories are encapsulated in these simple yet evocative sweet treats. From vibrant lollipops, fizzy cola bottles to chewy jelly beans, each candy is a precious nugget of nostalgia that promises to bring out the kid in you.

As we move further into our journey, we encounter a touch of elegance, a hint of sophistication – imported European candies elegantly served in fancy bags.

These candies are not just a feast for the taste buds but also a visual delight. Each fancy bag carries within it an assortment of treats from across the European continent.

Glistening foil-wrapped chocolates from Switzerland, delectable licorice from Finland, or fruity bonbons from France, the cosmopolitan charm of these candies is an experience in itself.

And finally, no journey through a bakery is complete without the quintessential classic – chocolate bars. Miette’s chocolate bars are an ode to the timeless allure of cocoa, crafted with care and passion.

Each bar, encased in minimalist packaging, represents a world of flavors, from the bittersweet symphony of dark chocolate to the creamy indulgence of milk chocolate, to the unexpected zest of chocolate fused with orange or mint. One bite and you’re enveloped in the comforting embrace of velvety chocolatey goodness.

Our sweet sojourn through Miette is a testament to the magical allure of candies and chocolates. Every photo captures not just a treat, but an emotion, a memory, a story. A visit to Miette is a sensory adventure, a confectionery journey that sweetens the soul and leaves you yearning for more.

As we wrap up our tour, we hope that these snapshots have awakened your sweet tooth and stirred a desire to embark on your own exploration of these delightful lanes of sugar-spun joy.
