NYC’s Best Candy Shops & Stores
NYC, especially Brooklyn, was the mecca for mass produced candy in the early 1900s. Today you will find a mix of the old world and new candy stores in NYC. These are NYC’s best candy shops:
Schmidt’s Candy. 9415 Jamaica Ave, Jamaica, Queens. Since 1925 Schmidt’s have been producing hand made milk and dark german chocolates in Queens.
Philip’s Candy. 8 Barrett Ave, Staten Island. Philip’s Candy shop originally opened in Coney Island in 1930 and moved to Staten Island in 2001 due to subway line construction. The owner John Dorman, originally hired when he was 17, has been hand making candy daily for almost 70 years. Candy apples, chocolate covered treats, marzipan, egg creams, frozen chocolate covered bananas, candied popcorn, and other old fashioned treats.
London Candy Company. 267 Bleecker Street, West Village. The largest candy store in the US for British candy with treats like Cadbury chocolates, Thorn- ton’s, Nestle’s, Terry’s, Mars, boiled sweets, and Horlick’s malted milk drink.
Pappabubble. 380 Broome Street, between Mott & Mulberry Street, Little Italy. Boutique candy store specializing in hard candy including popsicles, rock candy, and more in a variety of unique flavors. My favorite is passion fruit. Try free samples so you can see what all the fuss is about and watch the candymakers perform their craft while you explore all the treats around the shop.
Myzel’s. 140 W 55th Street, Midtown. European style truffles, chocolates, and licorice from European chocolatiers.
