Heard about economy and finally visited, because I needed retro candy for party bags I am making. I found exactly what I needed. Economy has bulk items; pre weighed and priced bags of candies, mostly by flavor. There are individual items you can mix and...More

This neighborhood candy store met our expectations tightly packed to the ceiling with mountains of every candy variety you could think of and then some (2000+ varieties). We found favorites like C.Howard's Violets, Chocolately Star Cookies, imported German Haribo Gummies and more. Going through the...More

Looking for Candy stuff you can’t get now (candy smokes anyone?). Head to this beauty. Been around since the 1930s so you know it’s good.

I left New York 30 years ago and although I’ve been back to visit I never got around to going back to my favorite candy store. I did this time. The only thing missing was Necco wafers.... due to the sale of the company. Oddly...More

Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving
immigrant past and its modern transformation into a
beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side
is one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in the city.

to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment
