Cuyahoga Falls -- A local snack company has expanded its product line through the acquisition of another local company.

Sugar-Luv Homemade Candies and Desserts, located at 410 Chestnut Blvd., has merged with Metropolis Popcorn, located at Front Street and Portage Trail. Metropolis owner Brent VanFossen said he purchased Sugar-Luv from its founder Shannon Campbell about a month ago and she has stayed on to manage the Sugar-Luv store during a two-month transition.

In about a month, Campbell will step down as the store's manager and act as a consultant, VanFossen said.

Currently, Metropolis products can be purchased at Sugar-Luv and vice-versa. Metropolis specializes in gourmet popcorn in a wide variety of flavors that run the gamut from caramel and peanuts to puppy chow. Sugar-Luv snacks include pralines, truffles, cupcakes and a local favorite Hollywood Squares.
