Bubba Watson, a professional golfer and native of Florida, opened his very own candy and ice cream shop in Downtown Pensacola.
Eric, the General Manager at the appropriately named ‘Bubba’s Sweet Spot,’ spoke to us about how Bubba entered the sweets arena.
“Bubba had always wanted to open his own candy shop,” he says. “And downtown just keeps growing, so why not right here in Pensacola?”
As soon as you walk in, you will notice that the walls have been packed full of candy.
“We wanted it to be almost overwhelming as you walked through the door,” says Eric. “The kids’ eyes just light up, and it brings back a feeling of nostalgia for the adults.”
But Bubba’s Sweet Spot is also making a lot of their sweets in-house, such as caramel apples, chocolate dipped marshmallows, peanut butter cups, chocolate covered pretzels and handmade caramels. They are even making the fudge from scratch.
Eric talked to us about quality being a priority.
“We are using Callebaut Belgian chocolate in our sweets,” he says. “It’s some of the best in the world.”
If you prefer your treat in a cone, Bubba’s Sweet Spot has delicious ice cream by the scoop for those warm strolls in Downtown Pensacola.
Bubba’s Sweet Spot is all about enriching the community and helping grow the downtown area.
“It’s about creating jobs and growing together,” says Eric. “We even donate to the youth baseball leagues in the area.”
And not everything is measured with dollars and cents. Sometimes it’s just about the smiles on the faces.
“I always say that people come in here happy and leave happier,” says Eric.
