Sheila Vinacco, Mary Lada, and Ann Ross, locally known as the Murphy girls, grew up loving chocolate and sweets, and turned their sweet tooth into a successful business. Native Rhode Islanders, the three sisters grew up in Warwick, with their parents, James and Ann Murphy. Over the past ten years the local candy store has grown into a jewelry, chocolate and gift boutique for every occasion. The three sisters built their chocolate business from a 300 sq. ft. corner store to a beautifully appointed, 3000 sq. ft. retail store. Sweet Twist has earned two Best of Rhode Island awards, including "Best Candy Store in Rhode Island" and “Best Gift Store in Rhode Island” according to RI Monthly Magazine.
In 1994 Sheila began dipping small pretzel twists in chocolate, creatively packaging them and selling them to friends and family. These "Sweet Twists" were the inspiration not only for the name but also for what has grown into jewelry, chocolate and gift emporium. In 2003 the three sisters joined together with the vision to create the ultimate shopping experience. They have worked to provide customers of all ages with friendly customer service, convenience, and a great product selection. Sweet Twist now features many top brands including the John Medeiros Jewelry Collection. While remaining true to their love of sweets, they continue hand-making fine chocolates on premises. Sweet Twist is a one-stop shop for a gift, chocolate craving, or even just a little something for yourself.
