Economy Candy!

I want to introduce you to one of my favorite stores in New York - Economy Candy! If you love candy like I do, or even just like it a little bit, you will be in awe of this place! (If you don't like candy you are weird.)

This store has been on the Lower East Side of New York since 1937 and it is amazing - they have every kind of sweet imaginable, even weird stuff you thought they didn't make anymore like whatchamacallit or sky bar, plus a ton of international candies, as well as gourmet chocolates and what not. And, unlike snooty Dylan's Candy Bar, its way cheap!

This place is bursting at the seams with sugar of all sort. The air smells like sweetness! Even if you have to squeeze your way through the packed aisles around tourists, its worth it.

This place is a delight for all ages - seriously. You must go here! Take your friends and family when they come to New York and they will think you are so cool for knowing about this place.

Big league chew! Awesome! And Candy Cigarettes - I don't even think those are legal anymore!
