Great selection of different sweets and chocs, including some from abroad. We were looking for US candy as gifts for those back home and this shop never disappoints. Our kids enjoyed seeing the various candies, particularly at such scale.
We were finishing up our OnBoard tour when the guide said that he had a special stop for the kids, and also the adults.

If you are in NYC , then visit this place!! Oldest and best candy store in NYC...and in my opinion, best candy store in the world. Has everything you could imagine and more. Including vintage bubble gum cards. The staff are super freindly.
Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where
many Chinatown residents exercise, play games, and chat the day away.
