“Justin and Selena were just adorable, the sweetest, cutest couple. We took them to the production area and kitchen, where we make our homemade candies. They thought it was really neat. Selena is obviously a chocolate fan because her whole face lit up when we showed her how the chocolate was delivered in 2000 lb. cases. They tried all sorts of candies including the Vanilla Caramel and the Butter Cream Center. But Justin’s all time favorite is ourMint Smoothies. He said to Selena, ‘You have to try this’, and after she tasted it she said, ‘This is a seriously good chocolate!’”
She adds, “It was really a thrill to have them here. Justin has been a fan of our Chocolate Smoothies since he was a little boy. Justin’s grandfather said, ‘I have been enjoying these chocolates for over 40 years.’ ”
The family owned business has been in Stratford since 1968.
“Justin is incredibly well-spoken, polite and down-to-earth. He keeps his roots and keeps in touch with all of his friends here. He has an incredible relationship with his grandfather,” Kristene says. “In fact, it’s well-known here that he and and his grandparents (on his mother’s side) are extremely tight. They keep him really grounded.”
Justin and Selena didn’t walk away empty handed — they were given a special gift!
“Before they left we gave them both a Bieber Box which contains one pound of mint smoothies, which are Justin’s favorite chocolates. They are super soft in the middle and melt in your mouth and come in both milk and dark chocolate,” Kristene explains, adding, “We started making The Bieber Boxes back in February. The boxes are wrapped in a purple pearl wrapping paper with a wide royal blue satin ribbon. Purple and blue are Justin’s favorite colors.”

She laughs, “They had not eaten lunch yet so we got them pretty filled up on our sweets!”

“Justin had the chicken wings and a pop and Selena had a cheeseburger. They were all having a really fun time,” our source says. “After they ate, Justin and Selena put some money in the jukebox and did a little dancing around. It was adorable. They also played a couple of games of pool.”
Adds Meghan, “Justin used to come here when he was 11-years-old. He would sit in the game room where the pool tables are and practice singing and playing his guitar before going across the street to perform in front of the Avon Theater. He would play his guitar and sing and tons of people would gather around him to watch and give him money. To see how far he has come since then is amazing. Everyone is just in love with him.”
We would have loved to have witnessed little Biebs perfecting his craft before sitting on those now legendary steps at the theater to sing for tips! Selena, 18, is truly getting to see Justin’s roots — she’s one lucky girl!
