If you’re in New York and have a sweet tooth that needs to be satisfied, the answer is right here.  Enjoy some of New York City’s sweetest candy stores.  Treat yourself, and bring out the kid in you while you enjoy the sugar rush responsibly.

Dylan’s Candy Bar


“If you want to view paradise” Dylan’s is the place to go. It is like walking into Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. With two locations in New York, both are a must stop, but the one located on 1011 3rd Ave is  three  levels of  sugary sensory over load,  and can keep you entertained for hours.

Enjoy chocolate fondue, milk shakes, ice cream and more all while sitting in a giant cupcake.  If of age, you can sip on one of their sugary sweet infused cocktails garnished with all different types of candies. If you are not of age, fear not as they have the same options in mock tail form.

M&M World


Whether you are craving chocolate or M&M’s specifically, M&M world is the place to be. Located on 48th and Broadway this store will have you in awe.  The two-story colour wall packed with milk chocolate, peanut and specialty M&M’s will leave you breathless. Having every colour you could possibly think of plastered on the wall is a site to see.

Don’t forget the option to personalize your M&M’s. The possibilities are endless. Create personalized messages or select from the many clip art images.  These images range from the empire state building, to your favourite NY sports team logos just to name a few.



Prepare for an exceptional and unforgettable experience. This unique candy shop which originated in Barcelona is now worldwide and made its way to New York.  This candy store specializes in hard “rock” candies but makes soft rock candies and jelly fruits called “Bubblets” as well.

What makes this shop so unique? The candy is made from scratch right in front of your eyes. You get to witness the entire process completely. You get to smell, feel and taste the recently made candy. What more could you ask for?

Economy Candy


This candy store is one you will not want to skip. You will feel a sense of nostalgia and happiness as you roam through the aisles. Every candy you remember from your childhood and more can be found at this store. From Pop Rocks and Pez, to Bottle Caps and Razzles, you will definitely feel like a kid again. And good news for you, everything is reasonably priced.  You may leave the store 20 pounds heavier but at the end of the day it will be worth it.



Sockerbit is located in the West Village on 89 Christopher St. New York.  This shop has a huge array of Scandinavian sweets. Also if liquorice is one of your favourite candies this is the place to go.  It is said to be home of New York’s best selection of liquorice. If you feel adventurous and are willing to try something new, try “salmiak” or the salty liquorice. They are very salty and slightly acidic, almost to the point where it stings. If you can handle the intensity it is quite delicious.
