Foodies will undoubtedly feel right at home in New York City, as the Big Apple has no shortage of food shops and restaurants to visit that will blow your mind. The city’s candy scene is buzzing, and there are a number of shops that anyone with a sweet tooth should take the time to check out. Be sure to visit these three NYC staples if you love candy.

Economy Candy

Since 1937, this unassuming shop in Manhattan’s Lower East Side has been selling delicious morsels to kids and adults alike. You’ll find this place stacked with an astonishing variety of candies wall to wall, and will be charmed by its retro vibes.

Dylan’s Candy Bar

Established in 2001 with the goal of making it “the largest unique candy store in the world,” Dylan’s is a delight for the senses and a never-ending maze of candies in Union Square in Manhattan. The oddly satisfying, ordered by color selection of candies continues for 2 floors!

Williams Candy Shop

Just off of the Coney Island boardwalk in Brooklyn is Williams Candy Shop, an old-school haunt that has been providing sweet morsels to summer vacationers for their stays on the beach. This spot focuses on traditional, old-school sweets like caramel apples and cotton candy.
