Taste Bud mascot Welcome to Taste Buds!

We're the Quad Cities snack shop. Sure some call us a Candy store. Or a Smoothie and juice stop. Maybe even a Coffee shop. Heck, some think we're just Nuts. And the reality is we're all of that and more. Smoothies… check. Coffee Beans…. certainly, loose leaf teas…. yes, Gourmet Chocolates… yup, Gourmet Popcorns… uh huh, Nuts and snack mixes… you need to ask? And we even have nostalgia candies. If you can't find something to snack on here you must not be hungry.

So if you live in Davenport, Bettendorf, Moline or Rock Island make a quick jaunt over to our new location in downtown Rock Island and we'll take care of you. Our new location is 150 16 1/2 Street across the street from Bennigans. Can't make it to the store? Order here online and we can ship it to you or wherever you need it to go. Need to send a birthday gift? Christmas Gift? We can do that.

Want to take care of your corporate clients for Christmas? We've got you covered. Parents of an Augustana or Ambrose Student? Call us and we'll put together a nice package of coffee or tea, chocolate covered espresso beans, our spicy snack mix and some gourmet nuts. They'll stay alert and get some protein all while cramming for finals! Remember Taste Buds sells our items in bulk (except the smoothies, wise guy) so you can buy as much or little as you want.
